Gin, the sophisticated cocktail ingredient with a long and colourful history, has made a great journey to become Britain’s favourite spirit aperitif. Today, this versatile, restorative beverage offers an astonishing range of flavours, fragrances and varieties. Britain is still home to the world’s best dry gins, a reputation enhanced by a recent proliferation of innovative boutique products.  This is challenged by continental newcomers, but enhanced by a sparkling new range of tonics.

This is a great opportunity to advance the frontiers of knowledge and appreciation, again in pursuit of the perfect balance between gin strength and tonic flavour.  The findings of the G&T seminar at last year’s festival will be re-evaluated, but further research is always required.

So, get into intellectual good shape and ready for the festival’s literary treats and join John Harris, festival president and gin enthusiast, who leads a tasting of contrasting gins, flavoured by mysterious botanicals and exotic fruits.  Discover your favourite G&T combination – and remember to come on the bus.

This event, which usually lasts up to 90 minutes, is open to participants aged 21 and above – proof of age may be required.
