Explore An Array Of Gins This World Gin Day

This World Gin Day (June 10th), why not try a new Gin from different countries around the world.

The first G&T this World Gin Day should be Jaisalmer Indian Craft Gin. As far back as the mid-17th century, members of the Raj in India sought to combat malaria by combining the medicinal benefits of juniper with that of quinine, often dissolved in tonic. The invention of the carbonated quinine drink, tonic water, saw the birth of what we know as the G&T, which is how the majority of us still consume our gin today. 
Your gin journey then moves to Europe, to the North West tip of Spain, the home of Nordés Gin from Galicia – a contemporary Spanish gin made from Albariño grapes so it is not juniper forward and makes for a well-balanced and subtle gin. 
Travelling across the Atlantic next to the home of Aviation American Gin – crafted in small batches in Oregon. Co-owned by Hollywood actor, Ryan Reynolds, this deliciously smooth gin makes for a great cocktail mixer as well as a delicious G&T. 
Returning to the UK, why not enjoy Cotswolds Dry Gin and Mermaid Gin from England, 57 ˚ Skye earth + sea gin from Scotland, Katherine Jenkins’ Cygnet Gins from Wales and Micil Gins from Ireland.  Each gin offers a delicious but different flavour experience.
