World Gin Day at Benares

World Gin Day at Benares

World Gin Day at Benares Restaurant.

We want to share our enthusiasm for gin cocktails that can stand up to, and enhance, great Indian food. Gin lovers of the world rejoice as World Gin Day returns for its 9th year on Saturday 10 June 2017.

At Benares, we are celebrating a whole day dedicated to drinking Gin, whether that’s in a cocktail, with tonic or on the rocks.


World Gin Day will be coinciding with the Queen’s 91st Birthday, so there is even more reason to celebrate. That’s why we will be launching ticket sales of our Sipsmith Gin Paired Tasting Menu. This event will be exclusive to 16 people from 6pm on Wednesday 5th July.

Priced at £77 per person, guests will be welcomed with a culinary Sipsmith Gin cocktail and invited to feast on a luxury 5 course paired menu in our gorgeous private dining room.

Our Sipsmith Gin paired menu will be a great way to explore the world of Gin or to try Gins you may not have come across before.

Our Menu:

  • Sipsmith Cocktail on arrival
  • Sipsmith Gin VJOP cured Scottish salmon with pickled fennel salad, smoked dill creme fraiche and citrus vinaigrette
  • Sipsmith Gin and tonic amuse bouche
