A journey in gin as The Queens Arms and Sipsmith make the perfect pairing

From the joys of juniper to the delights of distillation, The Queens Arms’ Gin Discovery event, hosted by Joe Ellis from Sipsmith, will explore the most quintessentially English of spirits 

Botanical buffs and novices alike will get a taste of The Queens Arms’ extensive list of gins on a gin glider tasting board, consisting of three varieties mixed with Fever Tree Tonic, served with individually handpicked garnishes and cucumber based snacks. With taste buds tickled, Joe will then delve into the rich history of gin and the story of how Sipsmith set up London’s first traditional copper distillery since 1820, before offering an insight into the finer points of sourcing botanicals, overnight maceration and the distillation process.

Whether served on the rocks or in handcrafted cocktails, by the open fire or on the terrace, The Queens Arms offers over 20 concoctions using local and international gins. The menu includes Conker Spirit, a local gin from Dorset’s first distillery on the backstreets of Bournemouth, served with a garnish of tonka beans which inject delicate flowery spices and a beautiful layer of vanilla. Other highlights include a Brecon Special Reserve served with a classic lime and juniper garnish, Hendrix accompanied by peppercorns and cucumber and the famous pink gin, Eden Mill, served with a beautiful hibiscus flower.

This and is a ticket only event. Tickets cost £15, which includes a gin glider tasting board and cucumber snacks, and can be purchased from Carolyn Fagan, events manager,
