Everything you wanted to know about gin but were too afraid to ask at The London Gin Club.
Join us for a journey through the history of gin, from the birth of gin in the 17th century to the present day, tasting 5 premium gins along the way.
Since starting the London Gin Club 5 years ago we've learnt a thing or two about gin. It's fair to say that we're quite passionate about it, all of it! It's past; the rich and sometimes dark history of gin, it's present; with the amazing array of botanicals being used to create fantastic small batch and artisan gin, and it's future; which looks very interesting indeed as production gets more and more artisanal, bespoke and complex. So now it's time to share what we''ve learned with you!
This gin tasting is a perfect introduction for anyone wishing to learn a bit more about gin, it's history, the different styles and why we now have so many excellent gins to choose from.
We’ll kick start the tasting with a gin cocktail to wet your whistle, then we'll take you on a journey through the history of gin, how it came to be the spirit of our city and why it is often referred to as 'History in a glass'.
Whilst sampling you will learn about the journey this curious liquid has taken from Madam Genever of the 1700's, through Mother's ruin and ladies delight to the premium, sophisticated and complex spirit of today.
This is an informal tasting intended to entertain and inform whilst you sample gin relevant to each century we walk through. You can, of course pick our brains about all things gin during the tasting, or sit back, relax and let us take you on a journey through 900 years of gin.
This tasting includes an arrival cocktail, you will sample 5 gins including a gin and tonic to finish.
