The Wine Drinker is attempting to make the world’s largest G&T


We’re currently giving away a bottle of Wild June Gin, the gin pictured above. If you would like to enter to win a bottle of the gin being used in the world’s largest G&T, head over to our Competitions Page.

Last month we covered Snoop Dogg’s winning world record attempt at mixing the world’s largest “Gin and Juice”. The popular hip-hop artist, alongside rapper Warren G, and American Top Chef winner Michael Voltaggio came together to achieve this feat. A whopping 180 bottles of Hendrick’s Gin were used to create this 550 concoction.

However, tomorrow (23rd June 2018) The Wine Drinker will be taking this up a notch, with his attempt at breaking the Guinness record for the world’s largest alcoholic mixed drink. The challenge will use an incredible 200 bottles of Wild June Gin to mix up a massive 739 litre gin and tonic!

Fresh off the back of a Gold Award at the extremely prestigious San Francisco World Spirits Competition, Wild June is the latest gin from the team at District Distilling co in Washington DC. A bold and unique gin, Wild June is distilled with red berry junipers, which are hand foraged in the West Texas Mountains. If you would like to know more, check out our recent review here.

If you’d like to attend, Urban Food Fest will be playing host to the attempt. The event is set to begin at 4pm at Euro Car Parks, Shoreditch High Street.  A Guinness World Records adjudicator will be present, along with an expert in volume measurement to authenticate the challenge.
