The Gin Guild was founded in 1638 as a trade association representing the distilling industry in London. The organization’s primary objective is to protect, promote, and invigorate the distillation of quality “London” Gin in the UK and worldwide.

The Gin Industry Annual Dinner, held annually, brings together leading figures from the gin industry to share their experiences and promote the responsible development of the gin industry. The selection process for Sergent’s induction was led by David T. Smith, a gin specialist and spirits writer, and Bombay Sapphire’s Master Distiller, Dr. Anne Brock, The Gin Guild’s Grand Rectifier.
