Listen, we know that in all likeliness that World Gin Day, like Arthurs day, is probably an invented holiday by the gin industry. But, do any of us really care? Paired with a tonic, mixed with water, or enjoyed on its own, it’s a spirit with enduring appeal. What’s more, Ireland has had a bit of a revival in gin production in recent years, so that’s another thing to celebrate. World Gin Day is Saturday the 11th of June.
As you’re reading this, we’re going to assume that you’re a gin lover. You may be interested in the Irish gin and tonic festival, which is happening nationwide from June 20th to 25th. You can find more details via www.greatirishbeverages.com
