You might be thinking to yourself why an International Gin & Tonic Day even exists in the first place. Stop thinking. There is no epic origin story or significant gin-related event to coincide with IGTD.

Though multiple sources have different versions of the day’s origins, one particular study suggested that the first International Gin & Tonic Day happened in 2010. In all honesty though, people just really felt like drinking gin & tonics on that particular day.

The origins of gin date back to the 1700s but only in the 1800 did British officers make a concoction featuring; sugar, lime, water and gin equally parted with tonic – or as we know it, the gin & tonic.

Overtime, the cocktail grew in popularity among British locals – first starting out as a drink for commoners whilst eventually ending up in nearly every bar in the world today.
