More about World Gin Day

Emma Stokes, a drinks blogger and expert known as the Gin Monkey, is the person behind the day.

The World Gin Day website is updated regularly and so is its Facebook page. Gin Monkey’s Instagram and Twitter accounts are well worth a follow.

World Gin Day was actually started in Birmingham by someone called Neil Houston whose objective was to get his friends together to drink gin.

Emma and Neil were friends - and they moved the event to the Graphic gin bar in London’s Soho in 2010, with Emma’s friends joining in.

In 2013 Emma took over the running of World Gin Day - and has guided it to its present popularity, reaching over 200 million people on social media.
