With International G&T Day on Thursday 19th October, gin-lovers across the city can celebrate the occasion with the refreshing cocktail at a selection of venues along the historic waterfront. From unique flavours to luxury settings, there’s something for everyone.
Located a step outside of the city centre, those looking for an indulgent gin and tonic in a luxury setting can escape to the Rum Bar at Titanic Hotel Liverpool.
