Celebrate World Gin Day in London on Saturday 9 June

This Saturday 9 June is World Gin Day and what better way to enjoy the UK’s favourite tipple than at some of London’s most stylish establishments. Be it a G&T with a twist, a classic Martini or even an experimental cocktail, the city has it all. We've picked out some of the tastiest and most tempting gin-based drinks so you can sip and celebrate this weekend

A simple liquor derived from juniper berries, gin is one of the most diverse spirits and is, unsurprisingly, a favourite tipple with the Brits. This weekend sees London celebrate the 10th World Gin Day and the city is packed full of tempting offers. Head up to the Aviary rooftop bar to take in views of the UK capital while sipping on a gin-based Old Fashioned cocktail, or escape the city’s hustle and bustle at The Summerhouse, with its beautiful canal-side location in the Little Venice neighbourhood. It is the perfect spot to enjoy the summer sunshine as you sip a Sweet November gin cocktail, made with cherry juice and garnished with orange peel. In this guide, we pick some of our favourite gin hotspots to get our taste buds tingling this Saturday.

To celebrate the event, pub chain Young’s is giving away a free pink gin and tonic in over 100 of its pubs this Saturday to anyone who downloads its On Tap app – we don’t think it gets much better than that.
