Howay, we're off to the North East for a Newcastle Gin Tasting experience! Try 6 varieties of gin, have a giggle with a blind tasting challenge and improve your gin general knowledge. ‘Mother's Ruin' is enjoying a moment in the North East, they've even got an annual gin festival. Get the gang together and find out why gin palaces and houses are taking over the streets of NE1.
Gin tasting is great if you're planning a hen party that includes friends from far and wide. Your gin expert and host will get everyone swapping stories about all the cringeworthy things they've done after too many G&Ts!
When you've traded tales and heard secret confessions, it's time to improve your gin knowledge with weird facts, trivia and folklore. Did you know that Britain got so hammered on gin during the 1800s that a law was passed to reduce it's alcohol strength? True dat.
The blind gin tasting challenge is the main event! Can you tell the difference between 6 different gins? Pop on a blindfold and have a go at matching the drinks to those featured on the tasting sheet. Head over to the Quayside and continue the theme with gin cocktails at the infamous Quilted Camel.
