House of Gin

Thursday 26 October 2017

The House of Gin Festival is returning to Bristol Paint Works with a brand new format on Friday 27th October in association with Marylebone Gin and East Imperial tonic and mixers.

The House of Gin will showcase handcrafted and award winning Gins from around the country and some further a field including Copperhead, Ish, Brennen & Brown, Elephant, Conker and many more...

Its all change this year... The festival will have three Gin bars showcasing a wide selection of Small Batch and Award Winning Gins. We will also have the Copperhead Gin and De Borgen Cocktail Bar and "The Rum 66 Spirit Bar" with some super premium Rum, Vodka, Whiskey, Tequila and Mezcal.

There will be seven or more industry leading distillers showcasing their Gin, Rum and Vodka at the event. All producers will give you a master class on how their spirit is distilled, offer tastings and an opportunity to purchase bottles at a discounted rate.

We will also have a large selection of tonics including East Imperial, Fentimans and Lamb & Watt.

Take your pick from the following Bars -

‘The Navy Strength Gin Bar’
All Gins on this bar are bottled at 100 proof (57.15%) Navy Strength Gin evolved from the idea of ‘Proof Spirits’ and dates back to the 18th Century when British sailors would go to sea with rations of Rum / Gin. To ensure they weren’t given watered down Rum / Gin they would prove by dousing gunpowder in it, if it ignited the spirit was 100 proof if it didn’t it was watered down.

‘The House Gin Bar’
This Gin bar will contain Gin from the UK and Europe and from our wonderful producers attending the festival. these will mostly be classic London Dry Gins with very unique botanicals that bring this liquid to life.

‘The Genèver, American and Irish Gin Bar’
This bar will contain the original Genève’s from Holland and Gins from the U.S.A. The original Genever was almost like a bourbon hence De Borgens nickname " The Dutch bourbon" this can be mixed with Ginger Ale or even Cola.

‘Copperhead & De Borgen Cocktail Bar’
Copperhead Gin and De Borgen Genèver will be offering the very best Gin / Genèver cocktails, think Negroni and other classic Gin cocktails.

And we also cater for people that are new to Gin...

'The Rum 66 Premium Spirit Bar'
If you can't find your perfect Gin, we have the amazing Rum 66 Bar offering a range of Rum, Vodka, Whiskey, Tequila and Mezcal.

"RUM SIXTY SIX Family Reserve comes from one of the last independent family-owned distilleries in the Caribbean. It is distilled, aged and bottled at the Foursquare Rum Distillery, Barbados.
