The House Of Gin In Winchester - Winchester Gin Event | Blog




Gin is a widely enjoyed drink. It is a much-loved alcoholic drink with a reputation as one of the most complex and best-loved spirits. The popular spirit is a mainstay of the eclectic drinks list at our Restaurant In Winchester, No.5 Bridge Street.

At No.5 Bridge Street, we are incredibly passionate about great gin. When we heard that The House of Gin event was being held in Winchester, we were very excited! Any event that champions our much-loved spirit is very exciting. The House of Gin event will be held on Saturday 27th May 2017 at the Winchester Guildhall.

We are looking forward to welcoming The House of Gin visitors to No.5 Bridge Street, which is regarded as one of the best Winchester Restaurants. At our restaurant, you can choose from an exciting selection of British-influenced dishes and an eclectic drinks list.


The House of Gin Event

Visitors to The House of Gin event can expect to see a diverse range of gin producers, including the Winchester Distillery with their Twisted Nose Gin, which we serve at No.5 Bridge Street.

At the event, you can expect to find:

Gin Showcase

At The House of Gin you can expect a gin showcase from at least six prominent producers. Each producer will be delivering a master class on how their gin is distilled. This is a unique opportunity to appreciate the extensive work required to produce a great gin. Alongside the master classes, there will be an opportunity to taste and purchase the gin.

Gin Bars

Enjoy an eclectic mix of gins at three themed gin bars. For gin lovers who prefer a strong gin, The Navy Strength Bar will certainly deliver. Here you can expect gins that are bottled at 100 proof, with a staggering 57.15% ABV.  The idea of proof spirits evolved from the 18th century, when British sailors would receive rum and gin rations.

If you prefer gin from the UK and Europe, The House Gin Bar will be ready to serve you. This gin bar will host gin from the UK, Europe and producers that are attending the festival. Many of the gins at this bar boast distinctive botanicals that create truly memorable gins.

The final gin bar is entitled The Genèver and American Gin Bar. This bar will showcase gins from Holland and the USA.

For those that are new to gin, visit The Rum 66 Premium Spirit Bar or the Local Guest Brewer Bar. At these bars you can enjoy a range of premium spirits and beer respectively. 

Live Entertainment

The FB Pocket Orchestra will deliver live entertainment. Their performances typically include a range of jazz, classical, country and blues music. Expect music that is inspired by New Orleans, Tea Dances, Paris Cafés, Smokey Nightclubs, Hotel Foyers and Garden Parties.
