The classic way to enjoy Discovery Gin is in a G&T. 'That's the way I like it - with Indian tonic water, over a few ice cubes,' says Jeffrey Streicher, the Museum's Senior Curator of Amphibians and Reptiles, who is part of team that deals with 3,000 litres of spirit a year.
His fellow Curator of Fish James Maclaine is more of a negroni fan. 'It would definitely work well in one of those. Interestingly, we've got specimens in spirit from the famous RRS Discovery that went to Antarctica with Scott and Shackleton.'
