World Gin Day is a global celebration that takes place on the second Saturday of every June.
Not that we particularly need a special day in order to appreciate our love of gin, but hey, any excuse to get our best gin glasses and favourite gin toppers on the go is good enough for us.
According to the ONS (Office of National Statistics) the UK comprises a ginormous 72% of the total EU production of gin, and sales of the alcoholic beverage have increased by 267% since 2009 from £130 million to a whopping £461 million. I think it's fair to say that us Brits like our gin!
On what is set to be a scorcher of a day, what better way is there to enjoy our favourite gin spritz than to chill in the sunshine with family and friends, while sipping our gin cocktails and concoctions?
To help us celebrate the occasion, our favourite UK supermarkets have gin flavours galore for you to get your hands on and many have offers that you will not want to miss. Why not try a new flavour and impress your guests with your mixing skills?
Luckily there are lots of exciting gin drinks on offer for you to buy in store and online at your local supermarket, and also some great offers that are ready for you to snap up right away.
