The hallowed holiday takes place on 10 June, just in time to celebrate the end of the general election.
Once primarily used to treat scurvy-infected members of the Royal Navy, it’s fair to say gin has come a long way since the 1800s.
Last year, Brits consumed 19 million litres of the stuff while 40 new distilleries opened – and this year World Gin Day is back bigger and better. From a treasure hunt in London to a festival in Glasgow, here are the best places to raise a G&T (or three) across the UK this weekend.
Go On A Gin Treasure Hunt – London
There’s a gin treasure hunt happening and you’re not to miss it. The Jasmine Trail will send you on a mission to seek out a map in four of London’s best bars, all in a bid to win a trip anywhere in the world. You heard that right – anywhere.
Run by Willem Barentsz, you’ll have to post snaps of your shenanigans to social media alongside your dream destination with the hashtags #WBJasmineTrail and #WillemBarentsz.
Want a head start? Book a table at Graphic Bar in Soho and get snapping.
