ON THE NIGHT
First we get everyone to taste the gins - we don't let on what's what until after! We serve the gin in a test tube, so you can taste it neat (and not swirl it like wine, as this releases too many alcohol aromas and masks the botanicals). Then you have a Copa Gin glass, so you can then mix the gin yourselves with your chosen garnish. It’s very hands on and great fun!
Tickets can be purchased from the shop and are £25 per person, which includes 5 Gins and 10% off the featured gins on the night.
Nibbles also provided.
