Handpicked for you – curated deals for 5pm customers
A certain dragon-filled TV show will be swooping back onto our screens very soon and we’re pretty close to fainting with excitement.
So what better way to celebrate it than with a dragon-inspired gin flight?
Today’s Handpicked Deal for two from beGIN on Byres Road is offering you and a friend the chance to try a craft gin flight from the Eccentric Welsh range, ‘Flight of the Dragon’.
With three gins each to enjoy as well as nibbles, you don’t have to be a Game of Thrones fan to enjoy this experience…
Game of gins
Part of Hilton Glasgow Grosvenor, beGIN is a hip bar & restaurant on Byres Road. Staffed by a team of savvy mixologists, the bar stocks over 100 varieties of gin from all over the world.
Available seven days a week until 26th August, this offer is on a gin flight for two with nibbles.
Your three gins from the ‘Flight of the Dragon’ range will be strong, earthy, herbal distillations that challenge stereotypes of what a gin can be.
Where are my dragons?
Eccentric Welsh is a speciality craft gin producer operating out of a two-hundred-year-old cellar in Glamorgan guarded by an ancient dragon (okay, so maybe only half of that it true).
You will get the chance to swig (sorry, sip), the following gins:
Limbeck – gin with juicy orange and subtle cinnamon flavours
Young Tom – fermented from IPA wash, this is a floral, strongly fennel gin
Madam Geneva – a juniper-led, very classic style dry gin
Your gins will be accompanied by three paired tonics, including Fever-Tree Ginger Ale, 1724 and beGIN’s very own pink tonic.
Nibbles will be nuts and olives.
Many 5pm gin fans have left beGIN very satisfied. Here is a selection of rave reviews:
‘We received the gin flights as a gift. The gins served were really interesting and beautifully presented. The gins were paired with different mixers and the server Ross took time to explain the flavours within the gins. The gin menu was extensive and we are looking forward to visiting again soon.’ 4.25/5
‘Had a great afternoon and it was a good opportunity to try some new and interesting gins in a pleasant atmosphere. Our server talked us through the drinks, was very knowledgeable and enhanced our experience.’ 5/5
‘Enjoyed our gin sampling in beGin very much. Three gins and mixers to sample. The bartender was knowledgeable and helpful.’ 4.6/5
Now that the weather is finer, what better time to enjoy a craft gin flight with nibbles in a smart West End bar?
Available seven days a week, this Handpicked Deal from beGIN gives you and your companion the chance to sample three gins with perfectly paired mixers.
It would make a thoughtful gift for that gin-lover in your life, or even a date with a difference with your other half.
