and especially a big thank you to Ian & Karen for allowing us to hold the event at the Cow & Cask.

 

Another huge thank you goes to Joe & Lynne Barton for attending as representatives of Friends Of Young Carers West Berkshire. (our chosen charity).

 

We had 19 people attend during the 4 hours of the event. On arrival we handed out a booklet detailing all the 6 Gins with suggested garnish for a perfect G&T. Before sampling any Gin everyone participated in a sniff quiz where they were asked to guess the botanical in each of the 12 jars containing a different botanical used in the distilling of gin. Then the gin tasting began with a small neat shot of each gin. After tasting the samples everyone chose there favourite from the 6 and along with there choice of Fever Tree tonic an individual G&T was made with a complimenting garnish. The event then flowed with everyone experimenting with their choice of gin and tonic. The event finished with a raffle drawn in aid of the charity Friends Of Young Carers West Berkshires. Prizes included. (see below)
