The Story of the Gintern

5,000+ applied for the job!

Back in 2016 ILoveGin started the hunt for a ‘gintern’, with the aim to find someone who is passionate about everything gin to help us discover new distilleries and mixer companies to work with.

The job ad went viral and was seen in hundreds of websites and publications from the Metro, Yahoo, BusinessInsider, Cosmopolitan, Marie Claire, Telegraph, The Sun, Good Housekeeping and many more, even making its way over to TV and online news stations in the USA, Australia, and many parts of Europe! It also was shared tens of thousands of times on social media resulting in over 5,000 people applying!

We narrowed down the 5000 to 500 through a social media gin review round, then down to 32 to produce a video application, before inviting our top 8 to join us in London for a final round of cocktail presentations and reverse interviews. Congratulations to Holly for landing “the best job in the world”!
