Perhaps it’s the array of flavours. Or the endless variety mixer options. Maybe it’s the fact you get to drink it out of a fancy glass. The nation has decided that a classic Gin and Tonic is their favourite beverage of choice.
Gin can be classified as a type of alcohol that derives its flavour from juniper berries. It emerged after the introduction of ‘jenever’, a Dutch and Belgian liquor that was originally a medicine during the 16th century. Tasty and good for you!
Before this, French brandy was England’s drink of choice. However, after the Glorious Revolution led by William of Orange in 1688, a restriction on French imports arrived and Gin emerged as the national alcoholic drink of England. And now, it is as popular as ever.
Luckily, the Show has several Exhibitor stands showcasing their delicious Gins for you to enjoy. If a classic dry Gin is your choice for a G&T, visit Brixton Gin at stand F517 or Old Bakery Gin Ltd at stand F335. Both sell their classic Dry Gins, perfect for a good ‘ol G&T.
If you’re looking for something a little more adventurous, visit Caorunn Gin at stand F309. It’s Scottish flavoured Gins range from classic, to Blood Orange, to Raspberry. Or why not merge two British classics, Tea and Gin? G&Tea at stand F226 specialise in Tea infused gins, including an Earl Grey, a Cornish Cream and an 80 Day version.
Combine your love for Gin with love for the environment and visit Sapling Spirits at stand F233. The climate conscious spirit brand is aiming to plant 1 million trees by 2027, and sustainably farms all its grains to produce its spirits, including Gin.
