Gin Day asset

It's no secret that gin is currently enjoying a MASSIVE revival. 

A drink that used to be reserved solely for your Great Aunt Mildred is now the coolest drink in town!

What's more, to celebrate the revival of this fabulous tipple, the UK is getting into the spirit of things with parties, festivals and cocktails galore! 

Fans of the berry infused drink can get involved in everything from Juniper Festival in Edinburgh, to gin master classes and lessons in how to make the perfect gin-inspired mix. 

World Gin Day itself isn't until Saturday June 10th (it always falls on the second Saturday in June).. but there's plenty to look forward to before then.

So what is World Gin Day anyway?

The historic day goes all the way back to 2009, when blogger Neil Houston decided to get all his mates together to celebrate the wonder that is gin. 

This task was later taken over by a fellow blogger, named Emma Stokes. 

Since then anybody and everybody have been getting involved via the hashtag #WorldGinDay
