World Gin Day is a global celebration of all things gin. The idea is simple: get people together all around the world with a legitimate excuse (not that we usually need one!) to drink some gin, whether it’s in a cocktail, G&T or neat.
It is a day for everyone and anyone (over drinking age of course…!) to celebrate and enjoy gin! Whether you’re already a fan of the juniper spirit, or looking for an intro, World Gin Day is the perfect opportunity to get involved.
So to help you celebrate, our friends at Chase Distillery have shared a couple of their favourite classic Gin cocktails so that you can get shaking and stirring at home this weekend.
Chase Distillery's GB Gin is crafted by copper pot distilling Chase Vodka with 10 botanicals; juniper, coriander seed, bitter almond, cinnamon bark, ginger, cloves, angelica root, liquorice root, lemon peel, and cardamom. Find out how it is made here!
This Great British Extra Dry gin is is smooth and full bodied and is perfectly balanced with juniper, spice and citrus. It's a must try for gin lovers!
