World Gin Day – Lets Celebrate!


It probably comes as no surprise that it’s World Gin Day on Saturday 10th June. The gin scene in the UK has seen monumental growth over that past few years and in 2016 annual gin sales rose a staggering 16% to smash through the £1bn barrier for the first time in the UK.

This World Gin Day is expected to be bigger than ever with events taking place up and down the country. If you’re planning your own event or would like a little warm up before you venture out, why not try this recipe for a ‘Love 40’ Gin Cocktail. Let’s celebrate Gin in style!
