Did you know that Gin is made from juniper berries? These super berries are jam-packed with infection fighting qualities as they are warming, stimulating and disinfecting. According to Livestrong, it's also one of the least calorific spirits, the juniper berry also increases the number of enzymes that break down your food and helping your digestion, which means less bloating.
These are just some of the reasons to taste some of the delicious locally sourced gin drinks from The Gin Hand at LoveFit this summer. Expect the likes of Little Bird (Peckham), East London Batch No 2 (Bow) and Jensens Old Tom (Bermondsey).
