Whilst we love bringing you new and exciting spirits from the far flung corners of the world there’s also a lot to be said for the very British institution that is London Dry Gin. So it’s with great pride that we announce our next Gin Club with the iconic Beefeater Gin!
On Thursday 31st August, in true British style, The Milk Thistle will be hosting a night of civilised imbibing with the help of Felicity Criddle, brand ambassador for Beefeater. For just £20 you’ll be able to enjoy three cocktails, expertly crafted by our team to showcase Beefeater in the best possible way, light nibbles from our cousins at The Ox and a tutored tasting – a perfect way to spend a Thursday night even if we do say so ourselves!
As one of the world’s most awarded gins, Beefeater is also one of the longest established, having been created in 1876. Named after the iconic Beefeaters at The Tower of London, the gin went on to become an instant success, and by the 1960’s accounted for three of every four bottles of gin exported to the USA. It was also the only gin to be served on board the QEII on her maiden voyage to New York!
Nowadays Beefeater is a globally recognised brand as well as a truly excellent spirit, which is exactly why we use it here at The Milk Thistle as our pouring gin, so we really can’t wait to treat you to an evening of excellent cocktails to celebrate this icon of the British spirit industry! As always, tickets to Gin Club will sell out fast, so get yours here today.
