On the last Friday of each month since the Summer of 2014, Gin Lovers has dedicated one of its nights to one Gin brand. Beefeater, Bulldog, Blackwoods Gin Mare, G'Vine, Hendrick's, Tanqueray, No.3 London Dry, Seagram's, Wild Snow Dog and many other brands have been with us. And so it has been all last Fridays of the month. In 2016 we changed the format, but the goal remains the same. Absolute freedom, sharing flavors, meeting friends and endless Gin discovery. From 11pm to 2am, with free entry without mandatory consumption, without guestlist in the heart of Lisbon.

Gin and Tonic Ice cream Santini | Gin Lovers
It is officially considered one of the most anticipated synergies of recent times. The mastery of ice cream maker Santini joined the Gin Lovers boldness and irreverence and created a Gin and tonic ice cream. To be honest not one, but 16 ice cream, all made with Premium Gins sold by Gin Lovers. The new Santini ice cream reproduces not only a taste but also the authenticity of a drink - the Gin and Tonic. Calories aside, this is an ice cream that requires real care when tasted. Be careful or it will let you...inebriated. This synergy started a year ago when Gin Lovers invited Santini to develop a Gin and Tonic ice cream for an article that was coming on the Gin Lovers Magazine. Santini accepted immediately and it was a huge success in stores. This led to an alliance between the most prestigious Portuguese ice cream maker and the biggest Gin community to create a series of gin and tonic ice creams. The 16 premium gin brands were chosen. Then Schweppes and its tonic waters embraced the project with equal enthusiasm and availability. Each gin brand represents a different ice cream flavor because of the different botanical combinations. As there is no addition of ice - which provides an extra quantity of water to drink - the ice cream reveals the most authentic flavor as when you sip a Gin and tonic. Santini gives you the chance to experience ice creams from G'Vine, Gin Mare, Seagram's, Blackwood's 60, Tanqueray 10, Tanqueray Rangpur, Bulldog, Opihr, London N.3, Brockman's Monkey 47, Martin Miller's, Hendrick's, Wild Snow Dog, Sylvius and Beefeater 24. “We take advantage from the the fact that we are one of the oldest players on the market. Our know-how comes from the experience and work of three generations. We do not rest with only traditional flavor like strawberry or chocolate”, says Eduardo Santini - director of the prestigious ice cream maker. He believes that “the creation of new flavors and products in the Santini stores is natural”. Each gin and tonic flavor and brand will be revealed each week beginning the 7th of May. Do not forget. If you eat this ice cream do not drive.
