Download our Gin Leaflet hereSaturday 15th June is 'World Gin Day'. Bars and restaurants across the world are celebrating this much-loved spirit. Our Adnams Cellar & Kitchen Stores are holding gin tastings on the day - so pop in and try a G&T served the Adnams way. Adnams Head Distiller, John McCarthy, tells us why he's such a gin fan: "Gin is the most versatile of spirits, and it comes in a myriad of forms. When carrying out tastings of our range, I often come across people who proclaim to not like gin! My reply to this is always the same, ‘people who say they don’t like gin, are people who haven’t found the gin they love yet!’ It usually wins them round. I believe Adnams gins have a major advantage over others. We have an extra special botanical which is not listed as such: our base vodka. This lends a smoothness to the gin which really helps develop the other flavours and takes a Martini, for example, to another level of enjoyment! Of all the ways to experience our gins, my favourite has to be the Negroni made with Adnams First Rate Gin. One of these always leads to another!" Negroni 40ml Adnams First Rate Gin 40ml Dolin Sweet Vermouth 40ml Campari Simply add all the ingredients together, gently stir them, and serve in an ice-filled tumbler. Garnish with an orange wheel segment. You can download our 'Hello Gin' leaflet (6MB) which contains some delicious cocktail recipes here.
