Video: experts answer the top 5 questions about drinking gin

With the recent explosion of popularity in the juniper spirit on these shores, we spoke to two gin experts to get them to answer five common questions people ask about drinking gin.

We joined Alison Higgins, brand ambassador for the Scottish Gin Society, and Jamie Shields, director of the Summerhall Drinks Lab, at Summerhall in Edinburgh to discuss with them all things gin related including five of the most popular questions we could find on the Internet about drinking gin.

Their answers will hopefully give people a better understanding of this wonderfully versatile spirit and give more people an excuse to drink it and support their local gin producers.
