So gin is making up a big part of Berries, Beans & Beer. With the huge renaissance in artisan gin to match the craft beer movement, there’s a load of exciting gins out there alongside some really good classic styles and we’re aiming to have around 80 for you.
We’ve gins coming from all over the world alongside some closer to home with Hunters Cheshire, Zymurgorium and Three Rivers from Manchester, Nelsons from Staffordshire, Tiger and Salopian Spirits from Shropshire.
Love gin but a little unsure about what phrases like ‘juniper forward’ mean? Does the word botanicals make you think of a posh garden centre? Don’t worry, a love of good gin is all you need, we can talk you through the flavour profiles of the gins available for you to try. For the pink gin lovers we have some with strawberries, blackberries, bilberries, raspberries. We’ve also a couple of gins that have been made with or by brewers adding hops in if you want a crossover between the beer bar and the gin bars.
All our gins will be served with fantastic garnishes; expect wedges of citrus fruit, fresh herbs and spices and an abundance of red berries over ice. We use Fever Tree tonics for our mixer and there will be recommendations as to what works best with which gin but its your choice.
A gin and tonic will start from £4 with some premium gins in a higher price bracket. Some of the gins we only have single bottles of and when it’s gone it’s gone but others we have bottles to take away if you wish to purchase to drink at home after. If you’re looking for a great selection of gins check out Rodney Densem’s shop in Nantwich.
One gin unique to the event was blended by Michelle of Offbeat Brewery to her tastes, its a lightly spiced citrus blend of botanicals, perfect with a light tonic.
