Forget booking a ticket to Paris to explore French delights  – Antidote, the ultimate French gin experience is now in the Philippines! The name ‘Antidote’ poses as a conceptual thought, stemming from Tonic based drinks from the English colonies that exerted taste and healing properties. With Tonic drinks gaining reception and favorability, Groupe Grand Chais De France (GCF) drew inspiration from this historical bit and mastered the Antidote signature, a gin from a blend of French grapes.
