Ginuary, the growing annual trend!

Here in Australia we, now, have two dedicated Gin festivals, but alas we must wait until later in the year for these Juniperlooza celebrations. It’s January, the weather is warm, and the sun is shining so why not celebrate all things Gin now?!


#Ginuary has become a rather trendy tag in the vastly enthusiastic gin loving community and has gathered more interest over the past few years. Much like Rye July, Ginuary is a month-long celebration of the ever-versatile spirit that is Gin. A month where gin lovers and new comers alike can discover the huge array of flavours and styles Gin can offer, as well as try different cocktails and mixers, even cakes, doughnuts and ice-creams!


There is no official process for celebrating Ginuary, just have fun with it! Here are a few Gin goals to help you on your way to celebrating Ginuary;


1: Visit The Wigs Cellar and talk gin with us! We love our gins and have an ever growing collection in store!


2: Try one new gin each week or maybe two. Something that is out of the ordinary, step away from the classic dry styles to a savoury Mediterranean.


3: Try new, interesting, gin cocktails each week. Again, we all love a gin and tonic but have you ever tried a Citrus Quo? Check out our recipes for Ginspiration!


4: Visit a new, dedicated, gin bar each week. If you can’t find a local gin bar, then try a new bar that has new gins!


5: Visit a local distillery; Four Pillars, McHenry, Mt Uncle, Settlers, Distillery Botanica, West Winds. Find out how this great spirit has really started to boom over here in Australia.


Remember there are no rules or regulations as to how you should celebrate but at the end of the day take everything in moderation. You want to make Ginuary a celebration of the craft of Gin distillation, not mother’s ruin. Drink Responsibly!
