According to Noel Coward, ‘A perfect martini should be made by filling a glass with gin then waving it in the general direction of Italy.’

Churchill had similar ideas regarding the use of vermouth in a martini.

His idea of a perfect martini involved filling a glass with gin and then drinking it while glancing at a bottle of vermouth.

If those little nuggets have given you a taste for further facts, legends and tales about gin then you can drink deep at the fountain of knowledge which is the Edinburgh Gin Festival.

Taking place on the afternoon of Saturday 7th May, the event is produced by Times Like These Festivals – firm believers in running drinks events where the emphasis is on informative fun.

At Edinburgh Gin Festival, guests will taste at least six fine gins while enjoying live music and lyrical history with more than a hint of juniper.

You will learn a lot about your chosen tipple – each event is packed with expert guests – at the same time as enjoying a laugh-out-loud good time.

Social events

Times Like These Festivals are social events. Unlike any other drinks tasting you may have been to, they are ideal as a get-together with friends or even a team-building exercise with colleagues.

Of course, they also make great presents for the liquor lover in your life.

What other 5pm bookers like about this deal...

I liked the fact that the tickets had been reduced as £40 seems a lot for something that is being promoted...normally free!
