Once again, at our pubs across the UK, gin-lovers can sample a varied selection of gins from the UK and further afield, during the Wetherspoon spring 2020 gin festival. Click here to download the Gin Festival News.
Our 17-day event showcases up to 30 gins made in the UK and overseas. In addition to the many gins listed on the menu, this festival will feature gins not previously served in Wetherspoon pubs.
The line-up includes flavoured gins, gin-based liqueurs and a distilled non-alcoholic.
Showcasing some great winter flavours, we have Aber Falls Gingerbread Gin Liqueur, Edinburgh Gin Apple & Spice Gin Liqueur and Eden Mill Love Gin Liqueur Spiced Rhubarb Crumble.
Then, looking to the warmer spring weather, we have Didsbury Gin Strawberry & Sicilian Lemon, Verano Watermelon Gin and Malfy Rosa.
For those who like their gin a little more on the classic side, we have Hawthorn’s London Dry Gin, created in 1942 by Navy commander ‘Skip’ Wallrock and named after HMS Hawthorn. HYKE Gin was founded in Sussex, in 2016, and uses grapes surplus to supermarket requirements as its base spirit. We will also have Griffiths Brothers No2 Gin, an export-strength gin packed with flavour.
Our international distillers include Malfy Rosa from Italy and Mór Irish Gin which comes from, you guessed it, Ireland.
Finally, for those who may still be going strong from a dry January, we have Caleño Juniper & Inca Berry, a distilled non-alcoholic.
The gin boom over the past few years has shown us that gin doesn’t always have to be paired with tonic (although you sometimes can’t beat a classic G&T). We offer a range of tonics and mixers to accompany your gin choice. If you want to try something different, ginger ale and lemonade are options, along with our three flavoured tonics from Fentimans: elderflower, Valencian orange and pink grapefruit – look for the serving suggestions in the tasting notes section of the Gin Festival News.
We hope that you enjoy this festival as much as we have enjoyed putting it all together.
All of this festival’s gins will also be available to order via the Wetherspoon app, so you can sit back, relax and enjoy.
