Of all the gin joints in all the towns in all the world, she walks into mine – Rick Blaine, Casablanca.
A library? A bar? A museum? It has gin so who cares?! We have over 300 in our collection that is held in the gin library, of which you are more than welcome to access and enjoy (during selected hours.) The library is strictly by invitation only and for adults only (without exception.) We have gins from all over the world, and we look forward to you checking out what we have.
Both Mrs B and I have been gin lovers for many years… I won’t say how many, but quite a few. And with that we’ve learned a thing or two about the humble G&T. It’s fair to say we’re very passionate about gin in all of its intriguing dimensions; its past, with its rich and sometimes dark history, its present, with the amazing array of botanicals being used to create fantastic small batch and artisan gin and its future – which looks very interesting indeed as production gets more and more artisan, bespoke and complex. But who cares about all that, it’s time to drink some gin! Cheers!
Gin tasting is €20 per person or if you bring a craft gin we don’t have in our collection* then you get to enjoy the tasting course for free (covering max 2 people.)
For the gin tasting you will receive 5 G&Ts to try. Remember you will also receive a complimentary G&T each evening (from 6 – 8 in the gin Library.) So there will be plenty of gin to go round, and we promise you can always order “one more.” We will never run out of gin.
* The bottle must be craft, unopened and left in the collection when you leave. Nice try if you were thinking about starting before it gets to the Azores.
