THE Edinburgh Gin Summer Saturday raceday will return to Chester this weekend, marking a three-year partnership between the brand and the Racecourse.

The popular event, which sees four sponsored races – each named after one of Edinburgh Gin’s varied flavours – will take place on June 15.

Already lending its name to the Edinburgh Gin Garden at the racecourse, where guests can enjoy their drinks with prime views of the Paddock and Parade Ring, the brand has even rolled out an Edinburgh Gin Trail Map for racegoers heading to and from the Roodee.

The map highlights bars and restaurants in the city where visitors can enjoy Edinburgh Gin serves and specially made cocktails, the map can be viewed online and inside Saturday’s racecard.
