We know its probably already in your diary but the good news is the guys at Fever-Tree plan to make this years World Gin Day excellent! The Fever-Tree World Gin Day Pop-Up Bar will be taking up residency on the Southbank from 9th – 11th June for a weekend of fun, festivities and of course G&Ts.
It will be the debut appearance of its all new double-decker container bar were there will be rooftop masterclasses, live music and a sneak peek at Fever-Tree’s new Aromatic Tonic – fancy.
Fever-Tree’s portfolio of all-natural tonics will be paired with a wide selection of premium gins, including some of the capital’s favourites such as Tanqueray, Sipsmith and Portobello, as well as special guests from further afield including Dorothy Parker gin from the US and Four Pillars gin from Australia.
In addition to this guests will be able to enjoy a first tasting of Fever-Tree’s Aromatic Tonic before it officially launches in July. Its based on an historic 19th Century Naval recipe using angostura bark from South America and has a rosé pink hue, making the Pink G&T the drink of the summer season. Real men wear pink… they also drink it now!
