Gin and Tonic Day

Monday 19th October is

International Gin and Tonic Day.

International Gin and Tonic Day was founded in honour of Mary Edith Keyburn, a remarkable woman who loved to have the occasional tipple of gin and tonic.

Edith passed away on October 19th, 2010, at the age of 95, in hospital with a gin and tonic at her side. The drink was smuggled into the hospital in a water bottle and served in a teacup.

We hope that you'll have a tipple on October 19th and that we can all make as gracious an exit from this life as Edith did. 

Enjoy a Gin & Tonic and explain the reason for the day with your residents.

If they could choose to have a day named in their honour what would it be and why?
