The planning for GinFest 2016 is underway! Thanks to my buddy Emma who sent me a link to a very interesting looking seaweed gin, I have decided the theme for this year will be Coastal Gins.
Last year was all about introducing people to a number of different styles of gin. Hopefully some of you who came will remember something of the evening and, even better, a little about gin! This time I'm zooming in on a subset of a gin - those made by the sea. Gins often have interesting ingredients specific to the are in which they are made. In the case of coastal gins these include scurvy grass, sugar kelp and sea buckthorn berries. And in one rather interesting case, Devon violets!
All that remains is for me to pick the gins and find out what kind of tonic and garnish they need. And you need to buy tickets!
