WHAT DOES GINGER WINE MEAN IN ENGLISH?

ginger wine

Ginger wine

Ginger wine is a fortified wine made from a fermented blend of ground ginger root and raisins which was first produced in England. It is often fortified by being blended with brandy. Ginger wine can be drunk with ice, or without ice, and is frequently used as an ingredient—along with whisky —in a "Whisky Mac". Ginger wine can also be served mixed with other beverages, such as lemonade, ginger ale, or bitter lemon. Ginger wine is traditionally sold in green glass bottles, although the word "green" may or may not appear on the label. The first documented appearance of ginger wine occurred with the foundation of The Finsbury Distillery Company based in the City of London in 1740. The company, like other distillers, was required to build a retail network in compliance with the Gin Act 1751. Joseph Stone, a grocer on High Holborn street, central London, was one of the most prominent and important customers of the Finsbury wines division, and as such, had his name given to their ginger wine. In the 19th century, sales were boosted by a cholera epidemic and a widely held belief that ginger offered protection against the disease.
