Celebrate 10 years of the Gin Guild at the Annual Gin Industry Dinner and Guild Spring Installation.

The Gin Industry Annual Dinner has long been one of the Guild’s, and the industry’s most sought after events. Attendance is for those in the gin industry so has a unique place in the annual spirits calendar as it provides unrivalled networking opportunities with key industry members. Please check with the Director General if unsure.

Praise for the Gin Industry Annual Dinner:

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.

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 from last year’s event to share with potential guests.

Any dietary requirements will need to be advised at time of booking. It is not possible to request a change the menu at the event itself. Any general allergies and preferences (vegetarian/vegan/allergies etc.), however should be noted in the usual way when booking online.


As ever, given the prominence of the venue, security is a major consideration. Please note the importance of having attendee names well in advance and to advise the Guild in writing of any change of names.

It is essential that attendees bring their Pour Memoire invitations to gain access and photo ID (passport or a photocard Drivers Licence), as this is a high profile venue.  If you or any guest drops out, please try to fill the space with an appropriate guest.
