World Gin Day

Fentimen's 4

When someone somewhere decides to dedicate a whole day to gin, it’s worth celebrating. And that’s exactly what millions of people worldwide will be doing on Saturday 10 June in celebration of World Gin Day.

With just days to go until this global celebration, I’ve got my gin fix covered. Thanks to the lovely folks at Fentimans, I have a variety of different tonics and ready-mixed gins to have quite the celebration. I *may* have started my celebrations early by cracking into some of the gorgeous rose lemonade mixed with Bloom gin a whole week early. In my defence, the bottle was just too pretty not to.

Fentimans tonic is something special. The botanical brewing process results in a high-end tonic that makes the perfect gin and tonic. As well as tonic water, Fentimans also has a selection of drinks that can be enjoyed with or without gin. I’m a huge fan of the rose lemonade and I enjoy drinking the pink grapefruit tonic over ice with a slice of grapefruit. It’s incredibly refreshing and a nice change from other less inventive soft drinks.

To add to the World Gin Day excitement, I will be on holiday on Saturday, so I’ll be kicking back with a Fentimans Rose Lemonade mixed with Bloom Gin and raising a glass to World Gin Day. I hope you will all be joining me.

Are you a fan of gin? How will you be celebrating World Gin Day?

    How could I miss that? The gin & rose lemonade looks so pretty. Is it sweet or bitter?

      It’s somewhere in between, Mitzie, but what I will say is that it’s not too sweet, which is one of the reasons I like it – I’m not into overly sweet things so this really works for me. x
