Welcome to Ginuary …
The month when it’s acceptable to try a different gin or gin cocktail every day!
The gin trend continues to grow
Sales of UK gin have doubled in value in the past five years, according to the latest figures from the Wine and Spirit Trade Association (WSTA). The WSTA’s latest market report reveals that in the year ending 16 June 2018, Brits bought over 60 million bottles of gin worth over £1.6 billion, up 38% on the same period the previous year.
This means that the sales of UK gin at home and abroad has doubled in the last five years. Gin is now responsible for 68% value growth within the entire UK spirits sector.
We have seen our gin sales grow and the demand for premium and flavoured gins is continuing to rise.
Here’s just a selection of our gins to try …
