What to expect from World Gin Day 2022


After a couple of scaled-back years thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic, World Gin Day is set to return in full force on Saturday, 11 June. Organised by the Gin Monkey (a.k.a. Emma Stokes, Icons of Gin 2022 Communicat­or of the Year), the event is a global celebratio­n of all things gin. Brands, bars and gin drinkers are encouraged to get involved.

While, at the time of going to press, a full calendar of events is yet to be announced, seeing what your favourite brands have done to celebrate in previous years can give you a flavour of what to expect. Some distillers may open their doors for a behind-the-scenes look at how they create their gins. Perhaps your local distillery is organising a special tasting, a food pairing, or a celebrator­y garden party. With virtual events likely to be a fixture of the calendar once more, it’s worth keeping an eye on what distilleri­es around the world may be doing, such as virtual tastings, tours, exclusive interviews, or cocktail-making sessions. With each year that passes, distilleri­es are coming up with ever-more creative ways to connect with their fans, so we can’t wait to see what World Gin Day 2022 has in store.
