The Botanist bars across the UK have set a new world record for the largest gin tasting across multiple venues

The Botanist hosted gin tastings simultaneously across its eight venues: Alderly Edge, Chester, Farnham, Monument Mall, Birmingham, Deansgate, Marlow and Trinity.

As reported by the Manchester Evening News, 796 guests took part in the tasting, enabling The Botanist to smash the previous world record of 300 participants.

The Botanist, owned by The New World Trading Co., received sponsorship from brands including Whitley Neill, Tanqueray, Caorunn Gin and Fever Tree tonic to host the tasting.

In December last year, the Old Bell Inn in Saddleworth, Greater Manchester, broke its own world record for stocking the largest variety of gins, with 404 different varieties.
