In a few short weeks The Gin Festival returns to Liverpool for the 4th year running! Taking place in Lucians Crypt in the Met Cathedral, despite them adding 4 different sessions the event is already sold out (those desperate for tickets can sign up to the waiting list on Eventbrite in case anyone returns them… but it’s gin, why would you?).

To celebrate, the lovely people at The Gin Festival have put together some delicious and dead easy cocktail recipes featuring gins that go beyond the bottle of Gordons you can pick up down The Asda. Basically all these gins are a little bit special. Open your mind and say “chin chin” to gin this weekend. Get ready to want to get bevvied…
