It’s no secret that gin is having a moment. There are pop up bars dedicated to the spirit, you can spend an afternoon tasting your way through different botanicals or tour a gin distillery to find out how it’s made. You can even pick up gin-flavoured popsicles, teabags and sweets on your weekly shop. It’s definitely the nation’s favourite tipple, and with the rise in popularity of the home bar it’s easier than ever to bring your favourite cocktail into the comfort of your own home.
