Svami is looking for the Gin Drinker Of The Year (again)!

The quiz will challenge you on all aspects of gin, so just knowing your London Dry gins from Old Toms isn't going to cut it. The winner walks away with a year's supply of Svami and bottles of gin, and the bragging rights of being Gin Drinker Of The Year of course. 

Leading up to the quiz, get drinks with distillers while they share insider information on their gins, and get you prepped. Know of any other quiz that starts with pre-drinking?
