Interesting facts about grog

Grog was originally drunk by British sailors around 1700, who mixed their daily rum ration with water, sugar and spices. The drink was served hot, as it was believed to protect against scurvy and other illnesses. Grog is also said to alleviate cold and flu symptoms, sore throats and stomach upsets and help with insomnia and anxiety.

Incidentally, the name "grog" is said to go back to the nickname of Admiral Edward Vernon, who ordered the rum to be diluted so that supplies could be used more sparingly.

Grog is still an extremely popular drink in the Caribbean and is sometimes served with spices such as cinnamon, cloves and allspice. Grog is also still popular in parts of Europe and is sometimes made with red wine or brandy instead of rum. In this country, however, grog is mainly enjoyed in winter.

Für mich geht nichts über das Entdecken kleiner Manufakturen. Ob das der Micro Craft Brauer aus Bayern oder die sächsische Brennerei ist, die es bereits seit Jahrzehnten gibt - hauptsache klein, regional verwurzelt und mit Sinn für's Handwerk!
