Turkey Trot was a dance made popular in the early 20th Century, performed to fast ragtime music. Driven largely by youth counterculture of the time, the turkey trot consisted of four hopping steps sideways with the feet well apart, first on one leg, then the other with a characteristic rise on the ball of the foot, followed by a drop upon the heel. The dance was embellished with scissor-like flicks of the feet and fast trotting actions with abrupt stops.

It achieved popularity chiefly as a result of its being denounced by the Vatican. It was thought that the positions assumed by the dancers were offensively suggestive. Conservative members of society felt the dance promoted immorality and tried to get it banned at public functions, which only served to increase its popularity.

There were news reports of dancers being fined because "their Turkey Trots were interpreted by the courts as disorderly conduct." In another instance, fifteen working girls were fired from their jobs  when they were caught doing the turkey trot, although it was during their lunch break.

PLEASE REST ASSURED - NO TURKEYS WERE HARMED IN THE MAKING OF THIS PRODUCT!

Seasonally spiced and flavoured with cinnamon, cloves, cubebs, raisins, rosemary and vanilla, this gin has been described as Christmas in a glass. Comforting and satisfying with a residual warmth to chase away those wintry chills. At 44% ABV this packs a festive punch. Enjoy neat, over ice or with a quality ginger ale.
