Say Hello to our Gintern Finalists!
UPDATE: 20th April 2017 – We’ve selected our final 8! See below for who’s coming to London for the final round!
As you probably already know, last year we started the hunt for a “Gintern” to help us track down exciting new gins and mixers to feature in our monthly members boxes. We knew it was a great job and would attract some attention, but we were blown away by receiving over 5000 applications! We had around 500 potential ginterns progress through to round 1, the social media Gin review round, and narrowed those down to our top 32 for round 2, the video application!
Well the videos are in, and again we’ve been blown away by the creativity and sheer amount of effort put in to tell us why they’re our perfect candidate. So now we’d like to introduce our shortlist of the best candidates we’re considering for our final round of tasks and interviews in London (including a visit to a distillery, lots of gin tasting, and more!)
Find our more about the Ginternship here, and read on below to see the video applications from the best of the best!
In no particular order, here are our top 8 Gintern candidates who’ll be joining us in London for the final round!
We narrowed down a shortlist of 17 down to 8 finalists. See the top 8 and those who just narrowly missed out but deserve some serious congrats for their efforts, below.
