On par with any annual celebration you could name, the second Saturday in June is World Gin Day–the day when we raise a glass in honour of the world’s most leGINdary spirit.

Fortitude Valley is the place to be for this day of juniper jubilation, so be sure to swing by some of these hotspots to celebrate World Gin Day.

Proud Henry

With over 250 artisan gins on the shelf, Proud Henry is the perfect place to take your G&T game to the next level. The ideal first stop on your World Gin Day tour of the Valley, Proud Henry’s passion for gin and old school atmosphere will get you in the spirit to sip more spirits.

The Bowery

Home of many fine, gin-based creations (including a gin cocktail on tap) The Bowery’s experienced crew behind the bar are ready to whip you up something special for World Gin Day. Let the bartender know how you like your gin and they’ll make a tasty cocktail just for you.

Savile Row

The iconic orange door is hiding something equally iconic this World Gin Day. Savile Row is now the proud home of Roku Gin–the first of its kind by the makers of the legendary Suntory whisky. If drinking a one-of-a-kind gin isn’t what this day is all about, then we don’t know what is.

Eleven Rooftop Bar

Every day is Gin Day at Eleven Rooftop Bar. Their house cocktail, the Eleven, is a sensationally sour treat made from Beefeater gin, passionfruit, ginger and citrus. Escape the busy streets and enjoy the breathtaking city views with a cocktail in hand–Eleven Rooftop Bar knows how to elevate an evening.

Black Bear Lodge

There’s no wrong way to celebrate gin. Sure, you could kick back with a classic G&T, or you could climb the stairs of Black Bear Lodge and enjoy your dad’s secret favourite cocktail, a Singapore Sling. The fun and fruity blend of gin, cherry liqueur, Cointreau, raspberry syrup, pineapple juice, lemon juice and bitters is the perfect fuel for a night enjoying Black Bear’s live music and cabin-in-the-woods vibes.

Osbourne Hotel

We’ve all come to know and love Osbourne Hotel for its take on annual foodie events, and their World Gin Day offering is no exception! Collaborating with Aussie distiller Four Pillars for the occasion, $25 will get you a tasting of four gins plus your choice of menu item, as well as a menu of six matched delights to choose from!

Heya Bar

The Valley’s home of flavourful Asian street food and impromptu pool tournaments, Heya Bar knows how to get creative when it comes to crafting unforgettable drinks! Their Papa Smurf is a blue brew with attitude made from Hayman’s dry gin, Crème de Violette and lemon, garnished with edible flowers and bitters.
