World Gin Day – 11th June 2016

World Gin Day is on this Saturday, 11th June. Organised by Gin Monkey and now in it’s 8th year, World Gin Day is a day to celebrate all things Gin! If I was in London I’d be at Junipalooza – a gin festival taking place in Tobacco Docks on Saturday 11th and Sunday 12th June. Alas I’m here in Dublin so if you want to get into the World Gin Day spirit here’s where you can sip and sample some fine gins… WGD-logo-2016

Try a Tanqueray Tasting Tray at The Gin Palace, Jervis Street, Dublin 1. To celebrate World Gin Day, The Gin Palace has teamed up with Tanqueray Gin to launch their new Tanqueray Tasting Tray with 3 signature serves.

Have a Gin Martini (and lots of other great gin cocktails) at one of my new favourite restaurants, Angelina’s, Percy Place, Dublin 4. While we’re at it East Side Tavern also does a great gin martini…
