We've found our GINTERN!
From over 5,000 applications
We were thrilled and flattered to have received over 5,000 applications, ran a brilliantly creative round 1 (gin reviews on social media), whittled it down to just 32 that we invited to Round 2 (the video round) and then brought our top 8 down to Portobello Road Distillery in London for the final round! & we found our GINTERN! Watch the video to see who it is!
The Video Round
Here’s where we get the chance to find out a little more about you, and your creativity, passion, and what GINspires you.
Round 2 is a creative video task. We’re deliberately keeping the brief vague to see what you do, but here are a few things to keep in mind when planning what to submit.
TASK: Create a video to show us why we should hire you as our Gintern.
- Video must be under 3 minutes long
- (soft limit. we won’t penalise you if you run over a little bit, but we tend to think shorter is better for video content.)
- You must appear on camera for the majority of the video – we want to get a sense of who you are!
- The style and content of the video are up to you. It could be a simple video application where you talk to camera about why we should hire you, a 3-part play telling the story of your love for gin, or anything in between.
- We will not judge submissions on the quality of production or editing, so don’t worry if your submission is filmed on a phone or webcam. Just be creative to make it stand out!
What we’re looking for:
- You have a passion for gin, tonics, and mixers.
- You already have good knowledge of the world of gin (and mixers).
- Your creativity.
- You would be a good ambassador for our company and brand when meeting producers.
- Someone who is going to help us find excellent gins and mixers, promote our products, and help us grow the company!
You have until the end of March to create and submit your video. Good luck!
When you submit the video, we will also ask you a few short questions about how you would interact with gin producers when we send you on a distillery visit. These shouldn’t take more than 15-20 minutes to complete.

What is the Ginternship?
We are ILoveGin, a monthly Gin & Tonic club helping people discover their new favourite craft gins as well as the perfect tonic/mixers. We’re looking for an enthusiastic gin-loving intern (‘Gintern’ as we like it call it) who will be happy to spend their days trying new gins, new mixers, finding new brands to work with, visiting distilleries, pairing gins and “ginspiring” us with their new-found knowledge.
The gintern will get to travel around the UK and parts of Europe discovering new gins to work with and of course sampling them! The role is flexible so you can work from home but you will need to travel, one day you might be up in Edinburgh tasting a new craft gin, the next going to a launch event in London for a new tonic water. Be sure to check out our gin club and our gin gifts to get an idea of what we do.
It’s the opportunity of a lifetime for gin drinkers…
Fancy having a job which involves tasting new gins, traveling to chat with new drink companies, working out the best pairing of a particular gin with a particular tonic and ultimately enjoying free G&Ts ?

- Love a good tweet, Instagram post or Facebook status. We’re a fun and sociable company and we’ve got tens of thousands of fans who want to hear about everything gin related
- Creative people, those who can think a little outside the box and come up with new ideas
- Friendly, we want the task of meeting new suppliers/brands to be something you are excited about and enjoy
- Love to go to new places and meet new people, as you’ll often be visiting distilleries, new companies and gin events

- Live in the UK
