Its Official...Gin is really Italian!

by fede

Despite popular belief that the origins of gin lie in Holland, it is Italy that can lay claim to this most delicious spirit. Along Italy’s Salerno Coast in 1050 AD, Monks blended locally foraged juniper (“ginepro”, in Italian) with spirit in the Monastery kitchens to create what we now know as Gin as a medicinal spirit.

So that`s why Bacaro, recognized as one of the best restaurants in the Cayman Islands, is offering a special gin menu on Saturday afternoons between 4 PM until 7 PM. Gin bars have been a big hit in Europe and the USA for the past few years, but Bacaro is the only Waterfront restaurant in the Cayman Islands to offer a special Gin cocktail menu paired with authentic Venetian appetizers and mellow acoustic live music.
