Now summer’s here it’s time to celebrate all things gin!
Brummies will be welcoming the first ever Gin In The City weekend this July. The three-day event takes place on Friday July 27 – to Sunday July 29.
The weekend will be held at various drinking holes all over the city in Birmingham including the Distillery bar on Sheepcote Street which also has a gin terrace for alfresco drinking.
Brum gin bars including the multiple award winning 40 St Paul's and The Gin Vault are part of the bar line up which covers the Jewellery Quarter, Colmore Row area, Brindleyplace, The Mailbox, Edgbaston and Harborne.
The gin extravaganza will be hosted by renowned specialist Carl Hawkins, otherwise known as The Gintleman.
Brummies will be able to enjoy Cotswolds Gin, masterclasses, gin slushies, gin afternoon tea as well as Spanish gin with tapas to help line stomachs.
A spokeswoman said: “Whether it’s floral, citrusy, spicy, savoury or fruity we’ll have a gin to cater for everyone."
A £10 wristband will allow attendees to sample an exclusive gin mixer/cocktail at a cost of £5 at each venue.
Wristbands and maps of the gin venues can be collected at one of the festival’s three gin stations: Hotel Du Vin, Malmasion or Loki Wine & Deli Edgbaston.
