Handpicked for you – curated deals for 5pm customers
Flamingoes, candy floss and cartoon panthers – the best things in life are pink.
This includes pink gin, a dreamy creation best sipped while drifting across the sky on a rosy cloud.
Or, failing that, at beGIN bar & restaurant on Byres Road, which is offering you the chance to try three delicious blush-tinted gins (plus nibbles) with today’s Handpicked Deal for two.
If pink doesn’t catch your eye, maybe a round the world trip will. No, we’re not packing you off on a jet plane, but letting you sample three different gins from around the globe.
Available seven days a week, this offer is for two people to enjoy a either a pink gin flight or an ‘around the world’ gin flight of three drinks each at beGIN, plus nibbles.
For option one, your gin tasting session will include:
Mombasa Strawberry gin
Beefeater Pink gin
Sipsmith Sloe gin
Option two will include the following:
All gins are accompanied with lemonade, lemon tonic and Mediterranean tonic, and served with olives & nuts.
The gins will be paired perfectly with mixers and garnishes, allowing you to compare different flavours and styles.
By the end, you will be a bonafide gin connoisseur (and there’s not many that can say that).
Part of Hilton Glasgow Grosvenor, beGin is a fashionable bar & restaurant on Byres Road. Staffed by a team of savvy mixologists, the bar stocks some 68 varieties of gin from all over the world.
If you fancy staying on for some eats you can sample the menu of contemporary global food, which includes everything from small bites to sharing boards to gin-soaked ice cream sundaes. Sample dishes include BBQ chicken, cheesy haggis nachos and pulled Ayrshire pork burgers, as well as spinach falafels for the veggies.
