(Continued on page 21) 4 Is it proper to call for Gordon's by name in English Pubs? It's not a matter of being proper. It's unnecessary. For when most Englishmen ask for gin, they expect to get Gordon's. After all, its distinctive dryness and delicate flavour have been a part of English life for 194 years. Americans, however> have been enjoying Gordon's for a somewhat shorter span of time. So it is wise (and proper) to specify Gordon's by name. Your first sip of a Gordon's martini will tell you why it's the biggest selling gin over here as well as in England and the rest of the world. DISTILLED LONDON DRY! GIN PRODUCT OF (I. S. A.
