Nicholson Gin Evening

 

If the flavour of juniper is something that gets your taste buds going then this is the event for you.

Join us on December 8th as we team up with Nicholson Gin for an evening of Gin tasting. What better way to get into the festive spirit than with some delicious cocktails.

The event is from 6pm – 8pm although we have plenty of gin in stock for those who want to stay behind for those extra tipples!

We will also have guest speakers from the distillery and full cocktail menu available on the night

If you wish to attend and receive a complimentary Nicholson Gin signature cocktail, please RSVP to:

History Behind Nicholson Gin & Lords Cricket Ground

 

Driving along the snaking A372 in Hampshire, many will have caught a glimpse of the towering steeple of Holy Trinity Church in Privett but few will realise that it was built for and funded by, Sir William Nicholson, gin distiller of London. Fewer still will know that William Nicholson, a gifted player of cricket, advanced Marylebone Cricket Club £18,333 6s 8d  for the purchase of Lord’s cricket ground in 1864. Out of respect for such benevolence it is believed they changed the club colours from blue to the deep red and yolk yellow, the colours of Nicholson Gin. The stripe, so distinctive and known around the world as the ‘bacon and eggs’.
