World Gin Day is celebrated every year on the second Saturday in June to honor this distilled alcoholic beverage. Because it is made from juniper berries, gin is also known as a juniper spirit.
Where did gin originally come from?
The United Kingdom is home to many gin connoisseurs from throughout the world. As a result, some believe this is where the drink originated. Gin, on the other hand, has its origins in Holland. Some say gin was invented in 1550 by a Dutch physician named Franciscus Sylvius. He did it for medical reasons.
The drink was found by the English in Holland during the Thirty Years' War. Before heading into war against the Spanish, the English drank gin to ease their fears. The soldiers returned to England with the freshly discovered juniper spirit. When William of Orange sponsored the production of gin during his reign in the late 1600s, gin became popular among Londoners. Employers began to pay wages in gin as a result of its popularity.
Gin was still utilized for medicinal purposes at the time. Gin was frequently combined with quinine, an anti-malarial drug. Quinine became a crucial component in tonic water, which was the foundation for the Gin & Tonic. Gin soon became known as the most popular spirit in the world, thanks in part to its affordability.
The first time World Gin Day was celebrated was in 2009. That year, gin connoisseur Neil Houston established World Gin Day. He wanted to get together with his Birmingham, England, friends and drink gin. Emma Stokes organized World Gin Day in London in 2010. Stokes has been organizing the annual event since 2013. Around 200 million gin connoisseurs in over 30 nations around the world are currently commemorating the day. This year, World Gin Day is on Saturday 11 June.
