Calling All You Gin Soaks!

I feel I may be a bit unkind here, but how can you have a Gin festival and mention Bombay Sapphire and London Dry.

It's like having a whisky festival with Bells and Teachers.

If I were a school teacher I'd give it a C+ must try harder.

Also, why advertise free glass to take home....

Isn't it normal to take your empties home with you to recycle...

Oh Chris I do so agree, Plymouth Pink yum. A favourite before the Vodka got to me.

Pay attention. 

Norwich Gin. Awarded the best London Gin in the UK. 

Wait for it:

Awarded the best London Gin in the world.

Where from Norwich, Bullard's Brewery.

Best with Fever Tree tonic. You will think that an angel has tinkled on your tonsils. 

Only for most discerning connoisseur. For the rest like giving a cow a strawberry.

Those of a certain age will remember Simon at Surlingham Ferry, his pink gins were legendary, indeed the tinkling on tonsils was that of virgin's water.
