Gin lovers of the world get ready as World Gin Day returns for its eighth year running on Saturday, 11th June. World Gin Day is a global celebration of all things gin, where for one whole day we have the best excuse to drink plenty of gin!
Whether you like the traditional G&T, mixing it in a cocktail or served over ice – there’s so much choice out there, which gin do you pick? As its World Gin Day, we’ve chosen our favourites from all over the world… from the Netherlands to Germany, Spain and Sweden; it’s time for you to discover a world of amazing gin!
Ferdinand’s Saar Dry Gin is fun, delightful to the palate and offers all spirit enthusiasts among us a product they can play with, experiment with and be proud to have added to their collection. Infused with carefully hand-picked Riesling grapes from the steep shale slopes of the Zilliken estate, make this gin an impressively unique tasting experience.
Meet the delightful Bobby’s Schiedam Dry Gin – a balanced blend of botanicals – juniper, rosehips, cloves, lemongrass and cubeb peppers amongst others, create this extremely unique gin from The Netherlands.
Bobby’s is at its best in a Bobby & Tonic, served over ice and garnished with an orange peel studded with cloves.
On the island of Hven located in the strait of Öresund between Denmark and Sweden lies the Spirit of Hven Distillery. Their Organic Gin is a true handcrafted distilled gin produced from the finest quality organic grain spirit infused with fresh botanicals.
The result is an outstanding luxury gin with the delicate aromas and taste of citrus, juniper and grains of paradise – pushing the quality & taste one step further, above the rest! Best served on ice with lemon and tonic or on its own with a splash of water.
Established in 1880, Rives have been making their Special Gin in El Puerto de Santa Maria, Spain since 1980.
Rives Special Gin is a super-premium handcrafted gin, with a unique taste that will blow your mind! The careful selection of 11 botanicals, naturally harvested from around the world, creates a powerful and complex flavour that is guaranteed to wow you all!
Following the traditional London Dry gin style, A.v.Wees produce this smooth gin, distilled with just 2 botanicals – juniper berries and lemons. Although the recipe sounds simple, you’d be surprised how flavourful this Dutch gin really is. It mixes extremely well in cocktails and makes a very impressive Dry Martini! It just shows that sometimes keeping it simple is key!
So in a world with so many different types of gin from here, there and everywhere – it’s no wonder we need a day dedicated to celebrating this great spirit.
