Gin has become the runaway star of the spirits industry in recent years - and is now starring in its own movie.

Filming is currently underway for Gin: The Movie, an upcoming film which is believed to be the first ever feature length film on gin.

The film, which comes from the team behind A World of Gin, aims to document a journey across the UK as the filmmakers explore the diversity of gin.

Nik Koster, of A World of Gin, said: "Our aim with A World of Gin is to change the way consumers interact with brands and do something different. Our first event, the sell-out Ginder, was proof there is a lot of demand for this. We've handpicked the brands we're working with and we're very excited to take viewers on this journey".

Starting in Brighton, the crew are due to travel across the UK to visit Hayman's Gin, Williams Gin, Mason's Gin, Edinburgh Gin and Shetland Reel Gin with a stop off at Double Dutch Mixers to talk about tonic.

Once finished, screenings are being planned so that audiences will be able to sample the gins as they appear on screen.

Working with production company Boilerhouse Video Unit, the film will be shot throughout August followed by a year-long screening tour working with independent cinemas and venues across the country.

Screenings will begin in late September and will run for 12 months.
