Scrap any plans you have this weekend, and do the right thing...get to the nearest bar to celebrate World Gin Day! Although we’d quite happily celebrate this every day, we pulled together some of the best events that are taking place in and around the capital...perfect for getting people in the spirit! Check them out…
A Gin Treasure Hunt
Jasmine Gin brand, Willem Barentsz, are holding a treasure hunt which takes Gin lovers on a tour of some of London’s best cocktail bars - with a chance to sample a selection of Barentsz inspired cocktails. There’s four bars taking part in it, with guests having to search for a map to compete for the prize - which is a trip anywhere in the world. London, anyone?
Pop-up Gin and Tonic Ice cream bar
This Summer, Shoreditch’s Hoxton Hotel is opening a pop- up gin and tonic ice cream bar to celebrate the occasion - and let’s be honest, we can’t think of anything better than boozy ice cream on a hot day! During the event which will be running from the 9th - 11th June, they’ll be serving gin cocktails for £5 with a free G&T ice cream. Perfect.
Beefeater Gin to Hot speakeasy party
If you’re in London, head to one of the coolest Gin events that we’ve ever heard of - a speakeasy party in Beefeater Gins distillery. There will be a selection of performances from singers, songwriters and magicians which will be there for when it turns into a hidden speakeasy. Guests who attend will enjoy a selection of cocktails for the event, and will receive a tour of the distillery.
