World Gin day

It's summertime. Stow away the dark, heavy spirits in the back of your liquor cabinet and get out the power summer spirit: gin. Whether it's a classic like the Negroni or a simple, refreshing Gin & Tonic, gin adapts to the flavour profile that suits you best. This aromatic spirit is perfect for the warmer months, but how much do you really know about it?

 Calling all gin lovers: this week marks the annual celebration of your favourite drink. With this momentous event set to take place on 11th June, we've put together a comprehensive guide that serves as a botanically-charged crash course to help you make the most of it.

dId you know?

Gin can be distilled from almost anything, including grain, fruit, potatoes or grapes. What makes this popular spirit special, however, is the predominant use of juniper, which must be included in the blend of botanicals that flavour this important cocktail ingredient. Gin, a descendant of the Dutch spirit genever, has been around for centuries. Once known as "mother's ruin", gin is now enjoying a renaissance, with distilleries large and small producing different styles such as London Dry, Barrel-Aged and New Western.
