World Gin Day 2021: Let the good times be-Gin!

Let’s celebrate World Gin Day! While an astonishing number of gin distilleries have opened across the globe and in India – the gin revolution is upon us and has been for over a decade.

Today, gin experimentation has begun to contribute in its own way to the uprising. A wide range of botanicals across gin styles bring a fresh approach to the category, proving once and for all that there is a gin out there for everyone

It’s fascinating to see that gin as a spirit is evolving into a grandeur cocktail culture in India. The ‘Ginnaissance’ has effectively positioned itself as essential for bars and restaurants, so much so that that the juniper-infused spirit has become the drink du jour for millennials.

Whether in a composed cocktail or a highball, gin has won our hearts over, as the complexity of this liquid really does transform other flavours. Taking this thought ahead, this World Gin Day, Mayur Marne, Brand Ambassador, Diageo India, shares a few fascinating recipes that imbibe fresh indigenous ingredients perfectly suited with a Tanqueray and Gordons.
