World Gin Day History
World Gin Day promotes the appreciation of gin, a popular spirit made from juniper berries. The purpose of this event is to promote and enhance the understanding and enjoyment of this versatile beverage. On this special day, distilleries, bars, and gin enthusiasts come together to participate in various events, tastings, and promotions to explore and share their love for gin.
The origin of World Gin Day can be traced back to 2009, when it was established by British blogger Neil Houston as a day for friends to gather and celebrate the spirit. Since then, the Observance has gained considerable momentum, reaching a global audience, including Australia. The Australian gin industry has flourished in recent years, with numerous local distilleries earning international recognition for their unique flavour profiles and innovative production methods, which often showcase native botanicals.
In Australia, World Gin Day is observed through a variety of events and experiences, such as gin tastings, masterclasses, and cocktail competitions held at bars, distilleries, and other venues across the country. These events provide an opportunity for Australians to discover and support local gin producers, as well as learn about the spirit's rich history and the art of crafting the perfect gin-based cocktail. World Gin Day takes place annually on the second Saturday of June, allowing Australians a designated day to come together and celebrate their passion for this storied spirit.
