Handpicked for you

Scottish Gin Tasting Experience

Held at KRU bar in Finnieston

Cocktail and flight of 3 gins

Paired canapes

Choice of dates

In the misty past, wine tastings were the fancy pants events to be seen at. You really weren’t a proper grownup until you had sniffed a glass of red and muttered something vague about ‘bouquet’.

Nowadays, though, it’s all about sampling hip Scottish craft gins instead (paired with just the right tonic and garnish, naturally).

And thankfully, you aren’t expected to fake any special knowledge at a gin tasting — you can just focus on having a good time instead. Chin, chin.

So why not treat yourself to a fun afternoon in Finnieston with this Big Deal on a Scottish Gin Tasting Experience at KRU? Or better still, snap it up as a snazzy Christmas gift?

Scottish gin tasting

Today’s Big Deal is for a Scottish Gin Tasting experience at KRU bar. Tucked away above The Finnieston, KRU is a cosy and intimate space for a tasting.

The event will be in a group of up to 20 fellow gin lovers. There is a choice of six dates, each taking place from 4pm-6.30pm:

Saturday 11th January

Sunday 12th January

Saturday 18th January

Sunday 19th January

Saturday 25th January

Sunday 26th January

It includes a gin cocktail on arrival, followed by a guided tasting of three Scottish gins matched with the perfect tonics and garnishes. Canapes to complement the gins will also be served.

Move over, whisky

Scottish gin has rocketed in popularity over the past decade. For instance, over 40 creations have been launched in the last few years alone.

The majority of the gins are artisan craft brands with many distillers using local produce in their botanicals, such as sugar kelp or nettles.

Each Scottish gin also tends to have its own recommended garnish, like fresh mint for Daffy’s and frozen raspberries with Eden Mill Love.

Today’s Big Deal gives guests the opportunity to learn more about our new national tipple and enjoy a series of perfect serves whipped up by KRU’s bar maestro.

Christmas gift inspiration

Know anyone who enjoys a cheeky G&T?

We’re betting that they’d love a chance to sample a few good Scottish craft creations on a weekend of their choice.

With this Big Deal they will be treated to a cocktail on arrival, a flight of three Scottish gins and paired nibbles, all enjoyed in the cosy KRU bar in Finnieston.

Put it this way, it certainly beats woolly Santa socks as a gift.
