The recent resurgence in the popularity of gin has brought this noble and wonderful drink back to the fore. A wealth of small and dedicated craft gin makers are the inspiration behind the many gin festivals that take place throughout the country, but is there one near you?
When we started to look we found there are many gin festivals in different parts of the UK, each offering a fantastic selection in some great venues, so here’s our list of some to look out for, complete with dates and locations.
Pin Gin is made by Bottomley Distillers, the first gin distillery in Lincolnshire! Not only have they made a delicious dry gin with a wonderful array of botanicals, but their Strawberry-infused gin is just as incredible! These gins are perfect for a surprisingly warming G&T this winter!
…while drinking a G&T! Weather you are a wizard in the kitchen or you burn toast every morning without fail, you need to try making these G&T cakes. Fentimans Drinks has opened a pop up bakery in London some time ago and by popular demand has shared the recipes of the bakes on sale. There is one for every taste – follow the very easy step-by-step instructions and we are sure that they’ll all be a huge success at the dinner table!
I have a soft spot for a good cheesecake and this one exceeded my expectations! The Rose Lemonade Drizzle cake was so good too… Which one will you make?
Slingsby Gin was named after William Slingsby, who in 1571 discovered unique properties in the water of Harrogate’s Tewit Well. Slingsby was created with the desire to restore the ‘Spirit of Harrogate’! Originally released as a Limited Edition, Slingsby Yorkshire Rhubarb Gin is now a permanent part of their range….and you need to try it!
The creators of Silent Pool Gin aimed to capture the essence of England’s beautiful, rural landscape. With a distillery on the bank of the spring-fed Silent Pool, along with 24 unique botanicals…they have definitely succeeded! Not to mention the bottle design is extremely eye-catching! 😍
Intensely aromatic, bold with spicy notes of pink peppercorns, Pink Pepper Gin has a beautiful balance of juniper with the warmth of honey, tonka and vanilla. Each batch of Pink Pepper Gin is dedicated to family members and good friends of the Audemus story. This gin is a true labour of love!
Aber Falls Distillery, the first of its kind in North Wales for more than 100 years, has added to its exceptional range of premium small-batch spirits with its latest launch of a Welsh Dry Gin. Made using local botanicals and Welsh water from the mountains around Aber Falls, you can’t get much fresher than that!
