Drink gin with Richard Hammond and James May

Hammond will also be attempting to make cocktails, if he can reassemble his blender...

It's World Gin Day on Saturday, which is basically like Christmas for Richard Hammond.

To celebrate this wonderful day, Hammond and James May will be tasting gin live on the FoodTribe YouTube channel at 6pm BST, Friday 12 June.

Richard will even be trying to make the summer's hottest drink, FrosΓ©, if he can reassemble the blender James May sent him that is...

We thought it was time the two of them also learned how to drink and taste gin properly, so they'll be joined by the legendary Gin Monkey (aka Emma Stokes), chief of World Gin Day and all things juniper. Emma is an author, gin tutor, bartender and blogger.

Enjoy this epic trailer from James May.

What will they be drinking?

Richard and James will be celebrating World Gin Day with Ableforth's Bathtub gin, Jaffa Cake gin, and That Boutique-y Gin Company's Moonshot gin, where all the botanicals used have been to space... cool.

And Hammond, because he's a gin fiend, has also got his hands on the Master of Malt flavoured gin tasting set and a bottle of Mermaid Gin from the Isle of Wight. That should keep them going for a while...

See you there for some guaranteed chaos.
