Gin Quotes

“I never drink anything stronger than gin before breakfast.”

W.C. Fields(1880-1946)


"They all thought she was dead; but my father he kept ladling gin down her throat till she came to so sudden that she bit the bowl off the spoon."

George Bernard Shaw, ‘Pygmalion’ (1913)


“Gin-drinking is a great vice in England, but wretchedness and dirt are a greater; and until you improve the homes of the poor, or persuade a half-famished wretch not to seek relief in the temporary oblivion of his own misery, with the pittance which divided among his family would furnish a morsel of bread for each, gin-shops will increase in number and splendour.”

Charles Dickens in 'Sketches By Boz’ (1837)


    “For gin, in cruel
    Sober truth,
    Supplies the fuel
    For flaming youth.”

    Noel Coward (1899-1973)
    English actor and playwright


“....I decided I was a lemon for a couple of weeks. I kept myself amused all that time jumping in and out of a gin and tonic....I found a small lake that thought is was a gin and tonic, and jumped in and out of that. At least, I think it thought it was a gin and tonic.”

Ford Prefect in 'Life, The Universe and Everything'(1982) Douglas Adams


“I'm not sure ginseng is any better for you or me than a carrot, but just in case the Chinese are right, I grow it in my garden. I stick a root in a jug of gin and call it Old Duke's Gin and Ginseng.”

James Duke, USDA botanist, as quoted in The Wall Street Journal
