Every year World Gin Day is celebrated on the second Saturday of June. Widely popular across the globe, the much-loved spirit has legions of fans in India as well. Owing to its growing popularity across the nation, several home-grown Indian gins have sprung up in recent years.


Ask anyone who frequents bars: gin is having its moment in India. Bolstered by the growing popularity of cocktails, themed events, and a plethora of interesting mixer brands popping up, the spirit has done well to capture the interest of enthusiasts in a whiskey-drinking nation like ours. From classic London Dry to Japanese and Indian crafts, the Indian gin drinker has an appetite for these extremely diverse gins, which has led to the emergence of homegrown brands.


In addition to savouring gin and tonic or gin and soda, gin cocktails have also found a special place in India's burgeoning cocktail culture. It is not a surprise that as mixologists around the country experiment with ingredients and techniques, patrons are also willing to try new cocktails.
