Last year, Brits bought a record breaking 47 million bottles of gin. Sales grew more than any other spirit sold in the UK, and they are expected to continue to grow throughout 2018. Knowing your cucumber from your liquorice botanicals is now akin to knowing your merlot from your shiraz. With over 100 brands of gin now available, the British public show no signs of growing tired.
