Unfortunately, this facility only dealt with gin and not tonic as well.
Actually, this is a defunct cotton gin in Hutto, Texas. While I think most people perceive Texas as a cattle state - and indeed it is - there's an awful lot of agriculture here as well. Many fruits and vegetables are grown throughout the state - lots of citrus in south Texas - and the area here in Central Texas produces a lot of corn (mostly feed corn) and cotton. The blackland prairies of eastern Williamson County and environs have been (and continue to be) major cotton producers. This large gin in Hutto has been closed for some years, but much cotton is still grown here and shipped by train to various destinations around the country (and likely overseas.)
I pass by this place fairly often, and it has been the subject of many a past - and doubtless future - photograph.
