Gin has been having a real moment, and for good reason! Now there's so many different kinds of gin, and so many mixers available it can be difficult to know where to start. We've found some bars in Newcastle that really know their stuff - so if you're planning on a gin tour of Newcastle this spring, this is a good place to start!

Newcastle’s first authentic Gin distillery, Bealim House is a must for Gin-lovers. It's home to The Newcastle Gin Company and the city’s only working in-house Gin still, so you know you're getting something good when you go to the bar. Treat yourself, and book one of their Gin Tasting Sessions, or head to the bar and be spoilt for choice. Cheers!
The Continental is Newcastle's gin palace, so of course we had to include it on this list! They know how to serve up the perfect gin, with over 500 gins and 30 tonics on offer. With so much choice, it's fair enough if you you don't know where to start! But don't worry, they are experts, so check out their 'Perfect Serve' menu for their suggestions.
Dacantus is a real treat on Grey Street, with a huge selection of gins from around the world. They take their gin seriously, so ask them for their suggestions, or try out one of their Gin Tasting sessions if you fancy learning about it all yourself! While you're there, make sure you treat yourself to some of their tapas - it's delish!
