A drinks company that advertised for a 'gintern' who would be paid to tour Europe tasting spirits, hasn't filled the vacancy - because too many people applied for the role.

Website ILoveGin closed applications to the £20,000-a-year job on September 16 after 4,000 hopefuls signed up for the dream job.

The lucky candidate will get to set their own hours and travel the UK and the continent choosing gin for the company.

But they have had to put off deciding the winner until the New Year due to the sheer quantity of applicants.

ILoveGin said: "We were so overwhelmed with demand, over 4,000 applicants, that we couldn't work through them all before Christmas.

"We're looking to re-start the (vetting) process and hire someone in early 2017.

"We're looking for an enthusiastic gin-loving intern - 'Gintern' as we like to call it - who will be happy to spend their days trying new gins, new mixers, finding new brands to work with, visiting distilleries, pairing gins and "ginspiring" us with their new-found knowledge."

"The Gintern will get to travel around the UK and parts of Europe discovering new gins to work with and, of course, sampling them."

The new recruit will work remotely for two days a week, visit one or two new gin companies and the ILoveGin's London office once a month.
