Just the tonic: Edinburgh Gin set to host movie night

Wednesday 1st April 2020

In a bid to help ease the strain of social distancing, Edinburgh Gin has invited our fans to tune in for a digital movie night at 8pm on Wednesdays during the UK lockdown. Each week, fans will get the opportunity to vote using a social poll, for the film they would most like to watch. The name of the most voted for film will be released at midday each Wednesday across social.

The movie night will be hosted through ‘Netflix Party’, allowing viewers to engage with each other in real-time during the film via a live chat panel. Edinburgh Gin will also be running an in-movie quiz throughout the screening in which some ‘gin goodies’ are up for grabs. A link to the party will be shared on the brand’s Facebook and Twitter before the film starts at 8pm each Wednesday.

For those looking to re-stock their gin trolleys, we have announced that £1 from every purchase made through our online store will go to UK drinks industry charity – The Drinks Trust. The charity provides care and support to the UK drinks industry workforce.

How to join the movie night

Virtual movie-goers need to install the 'Netflix Party' extension on their Google Chrome browser from netflixparty.com. Users must also ensure they are signed into their Netflix account on the same Chrome browser.
