Unique gin tasting event at
The Civic Hall
Stourport Civic Hall is hosting a unique gin tasting event on Friday 25th May
The Gin Jamboree, which will feature more than 100 artisan gins from around the globe, is hosted by the same team who broke the world record for the largest gin tasting event in 2016. The Gin Jamboree team recently hosted the world’s first subterranean gin tasting party, held in a cave in the Peak District.
Organizer Andrew Wilson, said, “The turnout for our Gin Jamborees has been phenomenal – with events selling out in a matter of days – so we advise gin enthusiasts to book early to avoid missing out.”
“We have so many gins to try and every one of them is unique. The great thing about the new wave of artisan gins is they’re produced with great loving care by people who are keen alchemists and produced with quality in mind.”
Last year, sales of gin broke the £1 billion mark for the first time ever in the UK, six months ahead of forecasts, with a growth rate higher than any other spirit sold in UK pubs, bars and restaurants.
Andrew, who recently launched his own range of Old School Gin, added: “The publics unquenchable thirst for gin has led to a recent boom in new distilleries, with 49 opening in the UK last year alone. Brits bought over 40 million bottles of the stuff last year – that’s the equivalent of 1.12 billion G&Ts.”
“It will be the first of its kind in Stourport, whether you’re already a fan of gin, or looking for an introduction. Our Gin Jamborees are a celebration of all things gin, giving us a legitimate excuse to mix up a cocktail and share our knowhow about the many, many exceptional gin’s that are now available.”
The Gin Jamboree at Stourport Civic Hall takes place Friday 25th May, 6:30pm-11:30pm, tickets cost £15 which includes a booklet describing all of the 100 different gins on offer, a gin ‘balloon’ glass to take home and a delicious supper.
