In the wake of World Gin Day comes the announcement of the first round of THE GRAPHIC GIN OFF.

Yes – this summer, gin experts, Graphic in London’s Soho, have invited the most exciting gin brands to compete against each other in THE GRAPHIC GIN OFF, the ultimate juniper infused battle of the bottles.

Featuring eight gin brands, Graphic’s three-part tournament, described as ‘The FA Cup of Gin’, kicked off with a draw on Tuesday 2nd June, when all eight brands gathered at the venue to be allocated their first round ‘fixtures’. Having all provided a bartender, who will create one representative cocktail for participants to vote for, the brands are set to begin the first round of the battle on Monday 22nd June 2015.

The brands showcasing their leading gins are:

  • Round 1: 22nd June 2015 – Martin Millers VS Elephant Gin
  • Round 2: 20th July 2015- East London Liquor Company VS Whitley Neill Gin
  • Round 3: 24th August 2015 – Hayman’s VS Opihr Oriental Spiced Gin
  • Round 4: 21st September 2015 – Sipsmith London Dry Gin VS Jensens Gin
  • Semi Final – Double Header – 19th October 2015
  • The Final – 23rd November 2015


Entrance is free to the event and guests will be given a polling card and welcome Gin & Tonic on arrival to the competition.

A master of ceremonies will lead the evening’s action while Graphic’s in-house DJ provides the soundtrack. Following a series of summer rounds, the semi-final will take place in September where qualifiers create a new bespoke cocktail to be judged. The two remaining brands will compete in the grand final in November.

Winners of this prestigious title will be awarded a specially made Copper Still Trophy and the victorious cocktail will be allocated to Graphic’s 2016 menu.

Graphic Bar is located in Golden Square and boasts London’s largest gin collection – an impressive 300 plus world class gins.

See you there, gin lovers!
