Unmissable events for World Gin Day

6th June, 2017 by admin

From top-secret immersive dining to a multi-sensory experience in a space museum, there really is something for everyone this World Gin Day. SB rounds up the top global events as the celebration returns for its ninth iteration on 10 June.

Hosted annually on the second Saturday in June, World Gin Day is presented as a day for gin experts and novices alike to enjoy and celebrate the popular juniper-led spirit.

The event was founded by Neil Houston back in 2009, and with the help of Gin Monkey, aka Emma Stokes, has grown into an accessible platform that engages spirits lovers the world over.

“The premise is simple: get people around the world drinking gin,” said Stokes. “Anyone can get involved so long as there’s a gin focus and something of value for gin fans should they attend your event or come to your bar for a drink on the day, such as a masterclass, tasting, offer etc.”

“I love how people have taken it to their hearts and have used the opportunity to create all kinds of events, parties, tastings and masterclasses all over the world.”

Which countries will be taking part this year? “There are more pins on the map every day,” said Stokes. “So far we’ve got lots of events in the UK – as you’d expect – but there are also plenty in Australia, North America and I’ve added Japan, South Africa, Canada, Germany, Belgium, The Netherlands and Cambodia over the last couple of weeks too.”
