Dream job alert: this company will pay you to drink gin

If there’s two things we love in life (other than, you know, our friends and family), it’s travelling to new places, and drinking gin.

Not necessarily in that order.

Which is why our ears pricked up when we heard that ILoveGin.com are searching to a ‘gintern’ to do just that.

The monthly G&T club need someone to help them track down to a whole new world of tongue-titillating gins, tonics and tinctures.

Writing on their website, they explain that they’re on the hunt for an “enthusiastic gin-loving” individual (no kidding), who will be more than happy to while away their time “ trying new gins, new mixers, finding new brands to work with, visiting distilleries, pairing gins and “ginspiring” us with their new-found knowledge”.

Which, obviously, sounds amazing.

Even better, however, is the fact that the lucky gintern will get to travel around the UK and Europe to attend launch events, meet with master distillers, and sample innovative new versions of mother’s ruin.

“One day you might be up in Edinburgh tasting a new craft gin, the next going to a launch event in London for a new tonic water,” they explain.

As if all that free booze weren’t incentive enough, the company is also offering a competitive intern salary, as well as the opportunity to set your own hours – and even work from home, if that’s what you’d prefer.

You can also expect plenty of goodies delivered straight to your doorstep every month, and, if you prove to be a ginspirational employee, they may even offer you a full-time position.

If you’re thinking of applying for this role, there are, of course, a few basic must-have requirements.

You must be over the age of 18, for obvious reasons, and you also need to hold a full driver’s license, and live in the UK.

Oh, and you need to love gin… but surely that goes without saying?

If this news psyched you up enough to quit your current job and throw caution to the wind, you can find the full job description and application form here.

We'd wish you good luck, but, being as you'll probably be our direct competition for this one, we'll settle for a competitive glare across the internet instead...
