Praise for the Gin Industry Annual Dinner:

What a fantastic evening that surpassed all expectations! and thank you for the beautiful photos.

We are so looking forward to a night away, some good food, drink & great company.

Truly honoured to be part of The Gin Guild, and it was a humbling experience to be in a room filled with icons of the industry.

Thank you for my first evening with the Gin Guild. It was a great evening and I met so many interesting people.

Such a well organised and executed event last night at the Gin Guild Installations and dinner. As a first time attendee I was extremely impressed by the whole event and look forward to attending in the future

Event information

The Gin Guild installation is held in the early evening, before the Board of the Gin Guild, in the Old Library at London’s Guildhall, in front of invited guests and colleagues and Guild members.

This event has a particular flavour and style, as it is a very distinguished location, which we are privileged to share. Before and after the ceremony, members of the Guild old and new, and their guests, share in a gin bar.

They are able to sample the spirit alongside the conviviality of Guild membership. After the installation members and their guests are able to enjoy a formal dinner in the Guildhall.

A full e-brochure is available to share with potential guests.
