G&T bar returns to Wine & Spirits Show

11th February, 2019 by Nicola Carruthers

When The Wine & Spirits Show returns to London for its second year in April, a variety of brands from around the world will be available to taste at a dedicated gin and tonic bar.

Germany’s Knut Hansen Dry Gin is among the brands available to taste at the G&T bar

Taking place on 12 and 13 April at The Royal Horseguards Hotel in London, The Wine & Spirits Show is a collaboration between The Spirits Business and the drinks business teams.

Over the course of the two days, the event will bring leading wine and spirits brands together for an exciting programme of discussion, tasting and learning.

Manned by The Spirits Business team, a number of leading spirits will be available at the Gin and Tonic bar, which will be located in the Churchill’s Bar within the Royal Horseguards Hotel.

Guests will have the opportunity to taste a number of gins including Scottish brand Orkney Gin Rhubarb Old Tom, Germany’s Knut Hansen Dry Gin and Cornwall-based Caspyn Dry Gin.

Kirkwall-based Orkney Gin Company launched the Old Tom-style gin in 2017. The 43% abv gin is a ‘celebration of rhubarb’, a plant that thrives in the Orcadian climate and can be found growing across the archipelago.

Knut Hansen Dry Gin is produced in Hamburg and takes its name from a legendary sailor called Knut Hansen. The gin is made using a selection of 14 botanicals including apple, basil and cucumber.

Meanwhile, Caspyn Dry Gin is made by Cornish distillery Pocketful of Stones in Long Rock, near Penzance. The expression contains ingredients including hibiscus flowers, lemon and orange peel, lemongrass, lemon verbena, Japanese tea, gorse and orris.

In addition to the G&T bar, visitors will also have the opportunity to taste award-winning expressions at the Global Spirits Masters Zone and taste new spirits in the New Products Zone.
A full schedule of masterclasses will be announced in due course.
