Handpicked for you – curated deals for 5pm customers
Whisky has been in a bad mood lately. Maybe that’s because it has heard that there is now a fierce contender for the title of ‘Scotland’s national drink’.
That contender is, of course, a plucky upstart known as ‘gin’.
And unless you have been living under a thistle in recent years, you will have noticed that Scottish gin has rocketed in popularity, with labels popping up all over the place.
It is safe to say that there is a Caledonian juniper juice revolution going on. So if you fancy learning a little bit more about it all, then take a look at this Handpicked Deal for a Scottish Gin Tasting Experience at Rogue in St. Andrews.
Sample a range of Scottish gins
Today’s Handpicked Deal is for a Scottish Gin Tasting Experience at Rogue restaurant, cocktail bar and small gin distillery.
The gin tasting will be held on the following dates:
Saturday 23rd February
Sunday 24th February
Saturday 2nd March
Sunday 3rd March
This deal allows you to pick the date that you wish to attend.
It includes a Rogue cooler cocktail on arrival, which will be followed by a guided tasting of three Scottish gins accompanied by a selection of tonics and garnishes.
Scotland’s second national drink
Gin really is booming in Scotland.
The majority of labels are artisan craft brands with many distillers utilise local produce in their botanicals, like sugar kelp in Isle of Harris Gin and hand foraged Stirlingshire nettles in Stirling Gin.
Each Scottish gin tends to have its own recommended garnish, like fresh mint for Daffy’s Gin and frozen raspberries with Eden Mill Love Gin.
Today’s Handpicked Deal gives you the opportunity to learn more about different labels and enjoy them with the bartender’s recommended garnish and serve of tonic.
Smart restaurant, bar and gin distillery
Based on South Street, Rogue is a chic hangout close to both Blackfriars chapel and the University of St. Andrews.
Based in what used to be Drouthy Neebors pub, Rogue specialises in serving up steaks, seafood and cocktails, as well as distilling its very own brand of gin.
Don’t be surprised if, after your tasting experience, you are tempted to stay on for a bite to eat. Just a few of the treats on offer include smoked salmon, hand-dived scallops and 50-day dry-aged sirloin, plus veggie dishes too.
On-street parking is available outside of the restaurant.
Do something different
This Handpicked Deal for a Scottish Gin Tasting session in Rogue would make a fantastic afternoon out with friends or even a unique date idea.
It would also be the perfect gift for that gin lover in your life.
