Looking to score a perfect 10? The London Olympics are set to kick off this week and if you don’t plan on crossing the pond to catch the excitement live, we suggest kicking back and enjoying a great summer cocktail made with Oxley Gin, the world’s first cold distilled London dry gin, while watching the games on the silver screen.

Members of the Oxley team include celebrities and top spirit critics, all fans of the gold medal winning gin.

Earlier this year, Oxley Gin took home a gold medal and the Best of Gin honor at the Los Angeles International Wine & Spirits Competition, making it the perfect choice when toasting those on the winners’ platform.
