NEW!

We have a new Gin, and trust us, you are going to love it!

Mary Rose Gin is the flagship spirit from the HMS Spirits Company. It respectfully admires the tradition of a well-balanced juniper heavy Premium London Dry Gin whilst adding subtle notes of grapefruit that bring it to life at the front of the palate and rosemary for a soft finish.

It’s carefully distilled in small batches in a copper pot-still and retains a higher essential oil content than most gins which gives it a richness and ensures it’s smooth on the palate.

We think it goes well with a sprig of rosemary and slice of pink grapefruit but as it says on the bottle – ‘Chart your own course’

 


A-Z OF GIN!

Next up is the letter I!

Puerto de INDIAS Gin!

Ok, so we’ve cheated slightly on this one, but it’s too good to miss out!

This premium Strawberry Gin is produced in one of the oldest distilleries of Andalusia, located in the town of Carmona in the province of Seville. With a translucent, light pink appearance, Port of India Strawberry Premium Gin has a soft touch of liquorice and a sweet, wild flavour of strawberry and juniper. Delicious!

Today we bring you F for Farmhouse!

Da Mhile’s artisan farmhouse gin is made with 18 botanicals.

The nose is subtle fresh rose petals then spice and a hint of juniper.

The initial palate is floral with bitter fresh notes of dandelion and peppery cloves.

The texture is silky exuding a superb botanical mouth-feel finished by intense juniper tones and peppermint cool.


We are so proud to be hosting the first ever Andover Gin Festival at The Lights on the 27th and 28th of July this year.

Tickets are just £12 and for that, you get your own gin glass, one free drink, and a gin booklet giving you all the info you need to make your drinks choices during the event. With advice on tonics and garnishes too, this book will be your go-to for everything you need to know, stored in a handy lanyard holder, so your hands are free to carry your drinks!

There will be 100 gins to choose from, spread over several bars, including a dry gin bar, flavoured gin bar, local gins and cocktails. There will also be a prosecco bar serving prosecco and gin mixers.

Live music acts already confirmed are local artists Common Ground and Vicki Parkinson who will provide the perfect backdrop to a buzzing atmosphere.

Drinks will be purchased on a token system, negating the need for cash at the bars, making the drinks process much smoother and quicker.
