WORLD GIN DAY: SUMMER EVENTS

Celebrate all things gin this summer! Festivals, masterclasses, dining experiences and more...

Here at Luxe we love our gin. From the classic G&T, to the elegant French 75 and the zesty Tom Collins, gin is the base for so many delicious drinks.

We’re clearly not the only ones who think so. And with more and more venues offering creative gin collections, there’s never been a more exciting time to sip the smooth spirit.

World Gin Day is only a stone’s throw away, so why not treat yourself to some gin-fuelled days out. It’s 5 o’clock somewhere…
