Legendary London bartender Dick Bradsell created the Bramble in 1984 whilst working at Fred's Bar in London's lively Soho neighborhood. It was intended to be a quintessentially British cocktail inspired by British flavors. The Bramble rapidly became the go-to gin drink in many bartenders' repertoire and arguably propelled gin cocktails back into the limelight. Perhaps the only true "modern classic" cocktail.
