An apt follow up to my recent tour of the Beefeater Distillery is this evening event at the Foundling Museum – a guided tasting of different gins being held on a Friday evening (7th Nov), so an ideal way to finish the working week.
Drunk for a penny, dead drunk for two pence
Professor Steven Parissien, dean of arts at Plymouth University will once again present his popular gin tasting session in the Foundling Museumâ€™s Picture Gallery. Explore the wonders of mothers ruin and tantalise your taste buds whilst listening to the history of gin from the 1690â€™s to the present day with a particular emphasis on the mid 18th-century â€˜gin crazeâ€™.
At time of posting, they have a few tickets left, so you are advised to phone and book early – 020 7841 3600 (select the menu option for reception).
The Foundling Museum itself was Britain’s original home for abandoned children and London’s first ever public art gallery – and is next to the impressively restored Brunswick Centre.
See you there!
