Emma Stokes, aka Gin Monkey, is a widely respected expert on the subject of white spirits. Her book The Periodic Table of Cocktails has received rave reviews, with a new Christmas cocktail book launching later this year. Emma is also the prime mover behind World Gin Day, uniting gin lovers across the world in their love of the juniper-flavoured spirit. When not occupied with spirits and cocktails, Emma works in science communication. She also has a degree in pharmacology, and has worked for the largest science experiment in the world (CERN) in Geneva. With an impressive social media presence and a regular judge in cocktail competitions, Gin Monkey loves to work the occasional bar shift in between keeping all the other plates spinning.
Emma takes her martini dry with a twist, and believes it is always five o’clock somewhere.
