Plymouth Gin is a living legend in the gin industry, as it’s a little-known fact that it was the world's first spirit to be called 'dry gin' when it was first developed in 1793. It is the only English gin to be granted a Protected Geographical Indication from the European Union. Loved both by the British Royal Navy and by famed explorers, Plymouth Gin sailed the seven seas and travelled from pole to pole, gaining notoriety at every port of call.

With an increasing consumer interest in gin, its history and how it is made, what better time to try your local brand? The Gin Guild, an organisation which aims to promote excellence in gin, is inviting Londoners to support local distilleries for World Gin Day on Saturday 14th June.

Whether it’s Sipsmith, Beefeater, Jensen, Thames, or the City of London distillery, London, home of the ‘gin craze’, has gin distilleries old and new meeting an increasing demand for new and interesting gin, alongside old favourites.

Nicholas Cook, the Director General of the Gin Guild, commented: “World Gin Day is the official day to celebrate everybody’s favourite juniper-based spirit.  Gin is a firmly-established part of British culture, dating way back to the early 17th century and some of our distilleries have been producing gin since then. Many new distilleries have also emerged over the last few years, reflecting the new interest in gin, either enjoyed with tonic or as a key ingredient in fashionable cocktails.

“There is no better way to celebrate World Gin Day than by showing your support for the distilling skills of our gin distillers and raising a glass of the fine spirit with family and friends. A gin and tonic, perfect for the summer months, should be well served, with plenty of ice, a good garnish and a quality chilled tonic water, or alternatively enjoyed as a refreshing cocktail.

The Gin Guild was set up in 2012 to promote and encourage commitment to excellence in gin distillation and industry custodianship of the spirit category.
