In 1904, Stuart's Fancy Drinks and How to Mix Them introduced the world to the Dry Gin Martini. Known then as the Marguerite, the cocktail derived its smooth and aromatic elegance from the seven botanicals (including citrus peel, green cardamom and juniper) in Plymouth Gin. The distillery had been in operation for some 110 years when the book hit shelves.
