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 Museum’s Picture Gallery. Explore the wonders of mothers ruin and tantalise your taste buds whilst listening to the history of gin from the 1690’s to the present day with a particular emphasis on the mid 18th-century ‘gin craze’.

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!

SUPPORT THIS WEBSITE

This website has been running now for just over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, but doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether its a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what your read on here, then please support the website here.
