We don’t need an excuse to drink gin. But as it’s World Gin Day on Saturday 8th June, we couldn’t not mention it. Especially considering that Littleover Lodge is one of the finest cocktail bars in Derby! So, why not treat yourself this weekend with a tipple or two?
World Gin Day 2019
For the past few years, gin has enjoyed a resurgence in popularity among us Brits. And, like most great things, World Gin Day, was born as an excuse to get friends together to enjoy the spirit. Founded originally by Neil Houston from Birmingham in 2009 as a small celebration, the idea quickly caught on. And in 2010, blogger Gin Monkey (AKA Emma Stokes) bought the party to London. The rest, as they say, is history.
Now, gin is well loved everywhere. And this is only confirmed by the fact that World Gin Day has evolved into a worldwide celebration, with events running in over 30 countries this year.
The Evolution Of Gin
At its core, gin is a very simple tipple. But with its rise in popularity, you can now get your hands on a huge range of flavoured varieties. From rhubarb, raspberry and elderflower to blood oranges and watermelon – the flavour combinations are truly endless. Especially when combined with a delicious tonic or mixer.
As one of the leading cocktail bars in Derby, we have an abundance of spirits and cocktails on offer to help you celebrate. From the traditionally delicious Tanqueray brand to rhubarb and elderflower flavours – we’ve got something for you. And, if you are feeling really fancy, let a member of our talented bar staff whip you up a Singapore Sling. We’ve thrown the kitchen sink at this traditional cocktail and it is gorgeous. Combining gin, triple sec, cherry brandy, bitters, grenadine, pineapple, lime juice and just a dash of prosecco, it really is a weekend winning cocktail with clout!
