Ginfest 2010

Ginfest2010We do love drink related occasions, but with Tales of the Cocktail, BCB, Rumfest and now London Cocktail Week; along with the rest of the beer & cider festivals. It does sometimes feel that Birmingham isn’t offering ‘much’ in the way of education, and it’s great to see that the Jekyll & Hyde in Birmingham is hosting a Ginfest.

So once London Cocktail Week is over, make sure you turn up to Ginfest running from Monday 18th – Friday 21st October they will be showcasing a variety of styles from their portfolio of over 50 Gins from 5-8pm everyday.

If you pop over to Ginfest, expect to leave with a brief history on the relevant product category, alongside the opportunity to attend tutored tasting, hear historical anecdotes & classic & experience contemporary complimeting cocktails and serves…

Monday – Genever, where it all began
Tuesday – Old Tom, why the black cat?
Wednesday – London Dry, how can a Gin not made in London be called London Dry?
Thursday – Plymouth, To celebrate Trafalgar Day, the rich historical association with Plymouth Gin & The Royal Navy
Friday – New Western Dry – Gins for the 21st Century

The sessions are all free, but of course you are encourage to buy some fantastic Gin libations afterwords. Take a look at our review of the Jekyll & Hyde Gin Parlour.

Catch you there at some point?
