Pop up of the week - Gin Festival


Hedgerow-sour1-498x620-optimised.jpg

To all the gin lovers out there, there is good news. From today and throughout the weekend, there’s a gin festival in London.

This year is the 3rd annual gin festival, which is held in the Tobacco Docks in East London. Upon arrival you’ll receive a glass and a brochure and then the drinking begins. There’s no real money at the festival, instead you use tokens, one token is £5 and gets you a single measure of gin, a garnish and a Fever-tree mixer. As if that isn’t enough there will also be food, (cause we all know that drinking on an empty stomach isn’t healthy for anyone) live music, entertainment and talks from gin experts. All this talk about gin has got us wanting gin at our Friday drinks; here are 5 versions that we love. #drinkresponsibly
