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.’
If that has 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 Scottish Gantry Gin or Rum Tasting in Glasgow or Edinburgh.
Taking place on selected dates in January, in the afternoon and evening, the event is produced by The Scottish Gantry Festivals – firm believers in running drinks events where the emphasis is on informative fun.
At The Scottish Gantry tasting, you will sample at least six fine gins or rums, depending on your chosen date, with each event showcasing different types.
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.
The Scottish Gantry 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.
