The city’s favourite tipple gets an entire day dedicated to its fruity, juniper blend. G&T anyone?
World Gin Day is celebrated on Saturday 8th June 2019 and we need no further excuse to get busy with the diced fruit and herbs! With so many different mixes, blends and pairings, Gin has never been so popular. The perfect, refreshing summer drink, we’ve put together a rundown of our favourite gin bars to sip a balloon glass of your favourite flavour.
And that’s not all. To truly raise a glass to one of our favourite annual days, we’re teaming up with The Gin to My Tonic Show, which returns to Exhibition Centre Liverpool this September, to give away a ticket bundle for you and 5 mates, so 6 tickets all together. All you have to do to be in with a chance of winning is follow the competition instructions on our Twitter and Facebook pages.
