The Gin Act 1736 imposed high taxes on retailers and led to riots in the streets.
The prohibitive duty was gradually reduced and finally abolished in 1742. It forced distillers to sell only to licensed retailers and brought gin shops under the jurisdiction of local magistrates.
There is however no longer a formal distinction between an inn and other kinds of establishment.
Many pubs use "Inn" in their name, either because they are long established former coaching inns, or to summon up a particular kind of image, or in many cases simply as a pun on the word "in", as in "The Welcome Inn", the name of many pubs in Scotland.
In Europe, it is the provision of accommodation, if anything, that now distinguishes inns from taverns, alehouses and pubs.
The latter tend to provide alcohol (and, in the UK, soft drinks and often food), but less commonly accommodation.
Gin was brought to England by the Dutch after the Glorious Revolution of 1688 and became very popular after the government created a market for "cuckoo grain" or "cuckoo malt" that was unfit to be used in brewing and distilling by allowing unlicensed gin and beer production, while imposing a heavy duty on all imported spirits.
