All throughout January 2018 we’ve haven’t been kicking meat to the curb, undertaking a fitness challenge or hiding the booze. Where some have done dry January or veganuary, we’ve actually been doing #Ginuary – embracing gin in all its forms and sharing with all our readers and followers. A far more pleasurable way to get through the long, cold, first month of any year, right?
We’ve waxed lyrical about our favourite gin brands (from Ireland and abroad), given tidbits on gin’s history, explained about perfect serves and gin cocktail implements and just overall shared some serious love for the spirit we adore.
We’ve handily compiled everything we’ve shared in a Twitter moment, pasted below so you can re-live the gin love-in! When you’ve scrolled to the bottom there’s a BIG competition you can enter too, to win a pair of tickets to what’s promising to be the gin event of 2018, Dublin’s Gin Experience!
COMPETITION: WIN TWO TICKETS TO GIN EXPERIENCE DUBLIN
From the team behind Whiskey Live and Irish Whiskey Awards, now Dublin’s beloved Celtic Whiskey peeps are turning their experienced hands to gin! Gin Experience Dublin will be Ireland’s biggest gin event aimed exclusively at all levels of ginthusiasm.
Taking place on Friday 6th and Saturday 7th April at the historic Dublin Castle (within The Printworks), over the course of three different sessions, each 3.5 hours long, you will meet 40+ exhibitors, both Irish and from around the globe, and sample their gins, from neat serves and cocktails to the ultimate G&T. Enjoy gin and food pairings, plus take part in some exclusive gin masterclasses too. Whether you’re a gin aficionado or you’re just interested in the drinks industry and the thriving craft distillery industry in Ireland, this is the event for you – or maybe as the perfect gift for the gin lover in your life or an ideal Valentine’s Day gift that’s not roses and chocolates! Learn more about what makes gin so special and unique and try a few new options for your drinks cabinet at home!
You can order tickets via Eventbrite (€43.68 incl. booking fee) or pick them up, €40 a pop, from Celtic Whiskey Shop on The Green in Dublin itself. €10 from every ticket be will donated to DEBRA Ireland. Worth noting: this event is for ages 18+ and photo ID is required. Follow along with the Gin Experience on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter, plus all the details are also on www.ginexperiencedublin.com.
