Gin Lovers Treated To A Weekend Of Bargains

World Gin Day - the annual global celebration of gin - is happening on Saturday 11 June.

In York, gin lovers are in for a treat - with York Gin putting everything in its two shops on sale.

The company is knocking 10% off everything for the whole World Gin Day weekend - from first thing on Friday 10th to the end of Sunday 12th June.

The discount also applies to anything on the company's website -

World Gin Day has been celebrated since 2009, with events around the world celebrating gin - in a G&T, in cocktails or neat.

World Gin Day events happen in over 30 countries - with the details of events available on the World Gin Day website

The brains behind World Gin Day is Emma Stokes, a London gin blogger known as Gin Monkey who's originally from Leeds.

She’s asking gin drinkers to post their photos on social media with the hashtags #WorldGinDay and #WorldGinDay2022.

York Gin co-founder Emma Godivala said:

"World Gin Day is the Christmas Day of the gin world. It’s a huge worldwide celebration.

"We wanted to make a splash this year - so we’re giving everyone the chance to enjoy some gin bargains over the whole weekend."
