    G & Tea

    2016 was a boom year for gin and the appetite for it seems to continue to grow. On 17th & 18th March the Long Melford Swan is holding a ‘Celebration of Gin’ weekend which sounds just up our street. It kicks off with a pop up bar on Friday from 6-9pm created by Williams Chase & Fever-Tree Tonic. A gin expert will be on hand to create a perfect G&T by using a variety of garnishes and flavours. The celebration continues on Saturday 18th March, with a gin masterclass and a carefully paired afternoon tea. Led by Hayman’s Distillers, the afternoon will include a tasting experience to explore the wide range of flavours in the nations favourite spirit. Tickets for the pop up gin bar are £5 per head which includes the first drink. The gin masterclass and afternoon tea is £32 per head. Spaces are limited so booking is essential.
