(A Drop Of Irish) Think of Irish booze and you think of whiskey and Guinness. They’ve got an ace up their sleeves though, Ireland is currently producing some of the best craft gins on the market.

To celebrate this fact, the Irish Gin and Tonic Festival is bringing its closing party to London, introducing the capital to new Irish brands in a huge summertime G&T party!

Food is coming BBQ style courtesy of Irish TV chef Simon Lamont, and you’ll also be able to make the most of our wonderful venue with craft beer from 40ft brewery available in the tap room. Book your wristband in advance for the discounted price of £10 to get samples of all the gins plus a complimentary G&T.

Gins representing every province in Ireland will be in attendance, along with a chance to meet the people behind the spirits to find more about their story and how they’re made:

  • From Ulster, the lovely Boatyard Gin. Wild bog myrtle from the family farm in Fermanagh helps to characterise Boatyard Distillery’s gorgeous organic grain gin. It has been nicknamed a “double gin” for the two distillations they implement for each bottling.
  • From Leinster, the delectable Bonac 24. The initial inspiration for this Wicklow gin actually came from time spent working in the Hamptons in NY, also known to the locals there as Bonac. Apparently, it took the Clifford family 24 times to get their gin formula right, hence the name Bonac 24.
  • From Munster, the delicious Dingle Gin. Straight outta county Kerry, with a rich spirit that is beautifully infused with eastern European spices and local flowers. Brought to you by the same folk as The Porterhouse Brewery.
  • From Connaught, the outstanding Drumshanbo Gunpowder Gin. Made in the only distillery in Leitrim, it is named after the famous Chinese green tea, it also features Irish ingredients such as dried meadowsweet which makes it a rather global spirit.
  • All of these lovely Irish Gins will be paired with Poacher’s Premium Irish tonic waters. Ireland’s only producer of premium, low sugar, natural mixers, Poacher’s citrus tonic water features Florida orange and Irish rosemary, while their classic tonic water is more quinine forward with just a tiny sprinkling of Irish thyme.
