How to create the perfect Gin tasting at home | Cook Eat Live Happy

Whether you are planning a girls night, family picnic or a neighbourhood BBQ, hosting an at-home tasting party with your favourite gins is just what your guests need. Gin can be intimidating if you don't know anything about gin or what types there are- this post will teach you how to make a memorable evening for yourself and your loved ones.

First of all, do I have any gin lovers out there? Please don’t tell anyone but the truth is I was definitely late to this game when it comes to drinking gins - well actually until recently at least! However now that I’ve arrived, I definitely understand what all the hype is about! If you love this spirit, you won’t be surprised to find out that Canadians are actually in the top 10 Gin drinkers worldwide, right after the UK and Ireland!

Gin has been around for centuries and is one of the oldest liquors still in production. The first Canadian distillery to produce gin was Seagrams way back 1883 but now new places are popping up all across Canada, including many craft distillers that create really beautiful products. I was really intrigued to find out that the history of gin can be traced back thousands of years! If you are a history buff or just a curious soul, like me, you’ll find this part interesting…
