Gin Lane & Soju-Ro

The original posts I wrote while looking into the Gin Craze. I didn’t know then that I would be writing a novel set in the time period… at the time, I was just interested in how Korea seemed to have a relationship with its own horrible-tasting, industrial-strength hard-liquor, soju, as the Londoners of the Early Georgian era did with gin. From such humble beginnings… well, you know.
