First launched by Neil Houston, the sixth celebration of World Gin Day is for all cocktail enthusiasts around the world.
Special tastings in shops, discounted cocktails in top bars and gin education talks at the City of London Distillery are just some of the juniper jaunts happening this June. Of course World Gin Day wouldn’t be complete without a party and this year, World Gin Day will also be hosting a Gin & Jazz party at City of London Distillery to unite gin-lovers for a stonking good party, alongside an auction with an array of gin themed prizes, naturally.
