Gin Nightmares

It’s Halloween, the time of ghosts and ghouls, and scary stories. But, not all horrors are supernatural - we’re sharing the most frightening things that can happen to a gin lover.

  • The gin is amazing, the tonic first class, it's a proper glass and plenty of ice but, hang on, is that glass still warm from the dishwasher? Disaster!

  • The pub’s run out of ice. Nooooo!!!

  • There’s no gin left in the house... and the shops are shut!!! Panic!

Gin Nightmares No Gin in the House

  • You go to the pub with your friends only to find, they only sell one gin and it’s that old, familiar green bottle. 

  • The bar has a fantastic selection of gins...and one tonic. A low quality, really sweet one. Well, that's that G&T ruined.

  • At a party, somebody really nice hands you a G&T, you go to drink it, and the chilling realisation strikes. It's a vodka and tonic!

Gin Nightmares Accidentally drinking vodka

  • The barman selects his glass, he adds his ice, he pours the gin, he gets out a bottle of fabulous tonic, he opens the top...and then proceeds to drown the gin in front of your eyes with too much tonic. The monster!

  • You go to taste your Hendricks and, shock, horror, somebody’s garnished it with lemon. What kind of animal would do this?!

  • Ordering your favourite gin at the bar, only for it to run out mid-pour... and there's none left in stock.
