  • The Who?

    Yup. The Gin Whore.

    The Gin Whore - Katherine O'Neil

    Katherine O'Neil (Her mother is delighted)

    Kate's been in the drinks industry almost 15 years. (Gosh she doesn’t look old enough!). Having presided over a mobile cocktail bar company (before EVERYONE had one), serving martinis to everyone from Jeremy Kyle, to the Rolling Stones, lost corporate souls and even the odd Prime Minister. Now Kate’s day job is drinks marketing events, having sold tickets to over 45,000 experiences - but being a Gin Whore is her real calling. Engrossed in the History of Gin, with tips on everything from where to get the best martinis, to how to please your ‘clients’ and cooking with Gin; her passion is educating about all things juniper.

    But isn’t that a little risqué???

    Yes, but as Kate keeps reminding her Mother, it’s all grounded in historical fact. At the height of the Gin Craze of 1750, in London, 1 in 4 women prostituted themselves to fuel their gin addiction.

    Progress of a Woman of Pleasure - The Gin Whore

    ‘Progress of a Woman of Pleasure’ 1794, shows a servant descend into alcoholism, prostitution and destitution, “heart sick at disappointment from all your Friends, and you stupefy yourself with Gin.”
