Virtual Gin Tasting (Real Gin!) with Greg Dillon

Monday 30th November 2020

Start: 7.00pm | Finish: 8.30pm

This event has passed


After the roaring success of the whisky tasting Guild member Greg Dillon has arranged a gin tasting for us. Try four gins from the world of craft gin and two craft tonics from Double Dutch Drinks via a video tasting hosted by GreatDrams founder Greg Dillon; author, brand consultant, independent bottler within the spirits industry as well as a judge on the IWSC panel, the World Whisky Award panel and the Spirits Business Masters panel. We will all join Zoom at 7.00pm GMT on Monday 30th November and go through the gins and paired tonics in series, with Greg answering questions and discussing all things gin. All you need to do is join with four glasses and an open mind. You will order your tasting flight by booking your place(s) and you will receive your gin and tonic by post in advance.

There are two tasting packages at discounted prices:

4 x 25ml + 2 x tonics = £32.50

4 x 50ml + 2 x tonics = £42.50

The Guild website is not sophisticated enough to deal with the 2 package types. If you apply for 2 places I will assume you want the 4 x 50ml package unless you tell me otherwise. If you apply for 1 place and want the 50ml package then drop me an email to confirm. Please note that this event needs minimum numbers to run so I would be grateful if you would apply in the next few days so that Greg can start to put the packages together.
