Wetherspoon is celebrating all things gin in our summer 2019 gin festival.
The 17-day event showcases up to 13 gins made in the UK and overseas. In addition to the many gins listed on the menu, this festival will feature several not previously served in Wetherspoon pubs.
The line-up includes flavoured gins, among them the brand-new Edinburgh Gin Lemon & Jasmine Gin, Kopparberg Premium Gin Strawberry & Lime, gin-based liqueurs, limited editions and, for the first time, a distilled non-alcoholic, Ceder’s Crisp.
There is even a gin owned by movie star Ryan Reynolds.
To celebrate the great British summer heatwave (fingers crossed), we have sourced some tropical flavours, such as Eden Mill Love Gin Liqueur Mango & Pineapple, Boë Peach & Hibiscus Gin Liqueur, Jawbox Pineapple & Ginger Gin Liqueur and the flamingo-inspired Zymurgorium FlaGingo Pink Gin.
You could also try the ultimate British summer flavour: Sipsmith Gin Strawberries & Cream.
For those who like their gin a little more on the classic side, we have two limited-edition British gins to enjoy – Hendrick’s Midsummer Solstice and Bombay Sapphire English Estate.
Our international distillers include Aviation American Gin from the USA, Tower Bridge Gin from Moldova and, for those who would like to try something completely different, how about Ceder’s Crisp distilled non-alcoholic from Sweden.
The gin boom over the past few years has shown us that gin doesn’t always have to be paired with tonic (although you can’t beat a classic G&T sometimes).
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.
We hope 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 won’t have to lose your table in the beer garden or go to the bar.
