8th June 2021
National Gin Day arrives on the 12th June! Derived from the Latin word, juniperus, meaning juniper, this popular distilled spirit is created from the botanical flavours of juniper, flowers and fruit.
There’s nothing better than sipping a cold G&T in the sun at the end of a long day, but gin is also enjoyed as a popular base for cocktails including the Gin Martini and more, which you can enjoy right here at Mailbox!
Take a look below for a round-up of some of the best spots at Mailbox where you can enjoy a glass of gin or two…
