Whether you’re a gin-enthusiast or trying it for the first time, Ginuary is a great time to get excited about gin! So, what is Ginuary? Ginuary is a celebration of gin during the month of January and raises a glass to all kinds of gin, whether it’s your standard G&T, pink, sloe, navy strength and much more! 

Originally used for its medicinal purposes, the name may have come from a Flemish word “genever” or “jenever” and then it was eventually shortened to “gin”, as it is known today. It is made from a distilled grain as well as berries from the coniferous juniper shrub and along with other botanicals. 

Gin is remains more popular than ever and there’s one out there to suit any palate! To help you celebrate Ginuary, here’s a selection of gins to tantalise your tastebuds!
