Not a lot new going on in gin this week. This tends to be a fairly quiet time of year. And to to add that, most of the gin news comes from some rather dark places this week. Have a drink for health, happiness, and to an early end to this interminable winter:

From the “for the love of god, what’s wrong with you files,” this ridiculous Neknomination bullshit has got gin in the news because some idiots’ friends nominated him to down two pints of gin. Can’t we go back to icing our friends?
From the “the controversy is down in the comments files,” is the Spanish market seeing a shake out in terms of brands?
From the “if you see something, say something files,” 1,000 bottles of Bombay Sapphire were stolen from a car on the A14.
From the “files of Sherlock Holmes or someone like him,” the mystery of the Martinez.
