Summary
Find out the dates, history and traditions of International Gin and Tonic Day.

International Gin and Tonic Day is observed on October 19th.

It was founded in honour of gin lover Mary Edith Keyburn, who passed away aged 95 on that date in 2010 with a G&T in a teacup by her bedside in a hospital in the USA.

According to her friends who established the day in her memory, Edith was ‘a remarkable woman who loved to have the occasional tipple of gin and tonic’. Her family smuggled the G&T into the hospital in a water bottle and hid it in plain sight in a teacup.

Starting with family and friends, the International Gin and Tonic Day Facebook page was established in 2012. Over the following years, it then spread from the US East Coast to the rest of the world.
