World Gin Day

Saturday 10th of June World Gin Day so a  day when Gin lovers of the world can rejoice and indulge in their favourite tipple.

The concept behind the celebration is simple: get people enjoying gin together all over the world.

And with the explosion over the past couple of years in the range of gins available its a great opportunity to sample a few new brands.

World Gin Day

Here are some of my favourites…..

SteamPunk Gin

Winner of the Gin Masters Award in 2016 this spirit is brewed in Gateshead by Steampunk Ltd.  A producer of small-batch, hand crafted gins in the wonderful North East of England, within a mile of the Angel of the North.

The brand claims to have resurrected the gin recipe developed in 1892, by Sir Raleigh Holmes-Dunston.  The tipple was designed to appeal to the highest echelons of polite society. Smooth on the palate, with juniper, cardomom and citrus melting together in perfect harmony, this gin is a sensation!


No.3 is a London Dry Gin distilled to a proprietary recipe of Berry Bros. & Rudd, London’s oldest wine and spirit merchant.  The name No.3 refers to the address in St James’s Street, London: home to merchants since 1698.

Flavour profile – With juniper at its heart, it unashamedly celebrates the integrity and character of a classic London Dry Gin: six perfectly balanced botanicals distilled in traditional copper pot stills.

Hendricks Gin

And finally a gin with one of the quirkiest of brands.  Produced by William Grant and Sons in a restored Carter-Head Still, Hendricks gin has a much sweeter cucumber flavour than its competitors.

Its worth checking out their website –
