Gin used to be the exclusive drink of choice for your visiting Aunt at Christmas – now, with the resurgence in Gin, everyone can get involved this year! Gin has a long history, especially in London, and has been a sought-after drinking for centuries. Fortunately, the days of ‘Mother’s ruin’ and Hogarth’s ‘Gin Lane’ are long gone, and in recent years the Gin scene has really developed to include a whole range of different styles. There are now many micro-distilleries to be found, producing small-batch artisanal Gin alongside our tried and tested favourites. So if you’ve ever wondered what is the difference between the various styles and why, this is the workshop for you! During the evening you will get to try several different styles of Gin, discover how Genever, as it once was known, came to be Gin as we know it now, you’ll discuss the different production methods and how the different botanicals affect the overall flavour. You will also be able to try each gin with different mixers to see what effect it has on the taste. You’ll be trying some London Dry, some salty numbers, spicy numbers, floral ones and foreign ones: come along and find a new favourite!
