An Evening of Gin - sold out

Saturday 30 March
7 - 9pm
Abington Park Museum

Following the sell-out success of our first gin evening in September 2018, we are delighted to host a second evening to celebrate all things gin! A gin and tonic will be served on arrival, and attendees will get straight into learning about the history of the spirit and how it is distilled. Six different gins will then be sampled with notes on each, before tasting gins paired with their perfect tonics. After sampling, you will learn how to make the perfect G&T, including the important extras such as which garnishes work with different gins, and how to pair foods for entertaining.

This two hour event will be hosted by Quentin Neville, owner and distiller from Northampton's Phipps Brewery and Artisan Blending Limited. Quentin's own gins will be available for purchase on the evening.
Alcohol will be consumed at this event and participants should arrange a taxi or alternative transport. Please drink responsibly. Over 18s only
£30 per person
