Celebrate World Gin Day

Celebrate World Gin Day 2019

Calling all gin lovers! With the promise of wonderful warm days and lighter evenings on the horizon, the summer is always there to tempt us with an ice cold beverage whilst we relax in the sun. And summer is set to get that little bit better with a whole day dedicated to gin for World Gin Day

Over the past century, the juniper spirit has come a long way from treating injured members of the Royal Navy to becoming a favourite tipple to enjoy on a summer’s day.  But how do you like yours? Do you shake things up with a gin cocktail or are you a traditionalist at heart and opt for a classic gin and tonic or martini?

Whatever your preference our drinks whizz Pedro Paulo is here to provide that perfect ginspiration with his fun and simple gin cocktail recipes – it is the perfect excuse to gather some friends and enjoy a tipple. We hope the sun makes a welcomed appearance.
