Would a cocktail named Satan's Whiskers or Fallen Angel make you feel a little wicked? Does a proper gin martini (and a smoking jacket) make you an incipient James Bond?

Perhaps not, but as a sophisticated gin drinker, you doubtless know that "sapphire" is not a stone, and that a "double" gin is one that is re-distilled twice. But did you know that every June 10 is World Gin Day?

You may not need a formal occasion to start mixing a G&T, but gin lovers will find some interesting ways to raise their game on Saturday.

Dr. Fern's Gin Parlour in Hong Kong's Landmark Atrium, for example, will host three master classes for aficionados of the juniper-flavored elixir. Bar manager Gerry Olino says that after doing the mixing, guests can garnish their gin and tonics at the DIY garnish station while nibbling on ingredients that will cleanse the palate. The speakeasy is known for showcasing premium gins with expertly made cocktails, claiming Hong Kong's biggest collection with over 250 gins from around the world.

Master classes are at 3 pm, 4:30 pm and 6 pm, priced at HK$500 per person. Each ticket includes four gin flights, four half-tonics and garnishes. Complimentary charcuterie and cheese boards are available throughout the sessions.
