Saturday June 9 is World Gin Day – here are the best events for a weekend full of ginspiration in London...

1. Gin Blending Workshop at Opium

2. 3 Martinis, 300 Oysters at 68 & Boston

While three martinis on the Fords gin menu will set you back a fiver each, oysters are free. Shuck, yeah!

3. The Botanical Suite at Dandelyan 

The Botanical Suite by Bombay Sapphire at Dandelyan
