Gin flights, gin tours or gin tastings… have you tried any of these events? If not, why not?! They’re great. With the dawn of small batch gin distilleries, there are more products coming to market. We’re asking how to give you the chance to try and enjoy them. I know we specialise in cocktail masterclasses, but we’re not ignoring the new wave of gin enthusiasts.
Read on if you want to win a cocktail event or bottle of spirits
In cocktails or with a simple mixer, there are loads of gins to try, and there will be no shortage of new products in the near future.
How to try all the new gins
It’s not easy to try all the new spirits that are coming to bars near you. At the bar, it can be easier just to go with what you know you like. Or in your off-sales, you may always revert to your old faithful bottle. We understand the shelves can get confusing…
Gin Heaven at the House of Trembling Madness in York.?? Enjoyed sampling Mason's Yorkshire Gin last night so bought a bottle to take home with us… #gin #ginandtonic #ginlovers #ginlover #craftgin #smallbatchgin #lovegin #gintonic #ilovegin #houseoftremblingmadness #tremblingmadness #drink #tipple #yorkshire #york #yorkcity
With so many new spirits to choose from, what should you be spending your money on? Should you take the bartender’s advice, try your luck or just stick with what you know? Our advice is to always try something new, but keep a bottle of your favourite as a backup :). Though we know you need a point in the right direction.
