This World Gin Day, swing by these places in K-town for some fantastic Gin cocktails

Gin enthusiasts congregate!

Neil Houston, a gin enthusiast, established World Gin Day in 2009. His desire was to meet up with friends in

Birmingham, England, and drink gin. Since then, the second Saturday in June has been designated as World

Gin Day to honour this distilled alcoholic spirit, and this year’s date is June 11th. Gin is also referred to as a

juniper spirit because it is made from juniper berries.

Great Britain is home to many gin enthusiasts from all over the world. As a result, some believe that is where

this drink originated. Gin, on the other hand, has its origins in Holland. Some believe that in 1550, a Dutch

physician named Franciscus Sylvius invented gin. Although he did it for medicinal purposes, gin eventually

became known as the most popular spirit in the world, thanks to its affordability.

Gin is, without a doubt, one of the world’s fastest-growing spirits. It is, in fact, the new wine! One of the most

important building blocks for cocktails, juniper-infused spirit, is now the drink of choice for both hipsters and

educated drinkers. An interesting fact is that in the United Kingdom, it is most likely the first drink that people

consume as a cocktail while growing up.

It’s World Gin Day, and what better way to celebrate than with quirky gin cocktails from some of the most

happening watering holes in K-town? The sparkling blends of spirits, citrusy punch and ice cubes resting inside

a martini glass – gin cocktails seem to restore the hyper-fun state perfectly. Restaurants and pubs across the

country are revelling in the splendour of this wonderful juniper-laced spirit!

On this World Gin Day, join the party by visiting these pubs & bars in Kolkata that should be on every gin

lover’s list. Raise a glass to the brilliant spirit and be-GIN the party!

Lord of the Drinks Kolkata – Purple Rain:

Purple Rain is one of the top-selling gin-based cocktails served with a dash of love at Kolkata’s most popular

restro-bar, Lord of the Drinks Kolkata. The amazing concoction is prepared with blue pea-infused gin,

elderflower syrup, lime juice, tonic water, and garnished with malta orange and orchid flower.

“Gin, I believe, is a millennial favourite due to the ease with which it can be mixed and the creativity that

modern manufacturers are displaying. Because of the right fizziness and strong juniper influence with low

alcoholic strength, gin can be enjoyed as an afternoon drink. Pair our Purple Rain with your choice of

appetisers and main course and celebrate World Gin Day like never before”, stated (), the mixologist of Lord of

the Drinks Kolkata.

Canteen Pub & Grub, Kolkata – Little Red Riding Hood:

Every sip carries the fresh watermelon juice with a dhaakad twist of homemade wine fennel syrup, stirred

with love. Then comes the magic – the momentous gin is mixed and mercilessly shaken with ice. Served in a

fancy glass, the Little Red Riding Hood is our summertime favourite!

Swastik Nag, the Director of Canteen Pub & Grub, said, “The millennials desire to experiment with flavours

that were unexplored in the past. Gin provides them with an excellent opportunity to do so. Even though tonic

has a long history in India, gin has never been a popular spirit in the country, so it’s almost as if they discovered

it on their own. They have the feeling of having discovered something secret now that it is trending and

growing at an increasing rate. It’s in their soul. Our fun, boozy gin-based cocktails are a great way to unwind

and discover fresh, new flavours after a long day at work. Refresh your soul with our soul-soothing Little Red

Riding Hood, loaded with the finest blends, and pair it with one of our signature dishes.”

Traffic Gastropub, Kolkata – Blue Pea Flower:

Traffic Gastropub understands what you crave at the end of a long day of rushing. So they bring you Blue Pea

Flower blended with tea-infused gin, fresh lime juice, elderflower liqueur, and tonic water. Shaken mercilessly

and garnished with an orchid flower before serving.

Mixologist (name) of Traffic Gastropub remarked, “As I always say, gin is a versatile drink. To be honest, you

can use it to make pretty much anything. Anything goes with the versatile spirit. Herbs can be carried with it

well because of the natural botanicals in the gin or the things that are a little bit richer in India. Something

savoury can also work well. Schezwan Fried Chicken with our gin-based cocktail is a must-try; the freshness of

the drink cuts through the spice. You can also start with something like Balwant Singh’s Chicken Amritsari

Kebab, which tastes amazing with the gin because the citrus works perfectly there.”
