Even more than us living through the second Elizabethan age, the Georgians were obsessed with Gin, so where better for a Gin tasting than a Georgian house?
Dr Johnson’s House, home to the famously grouchy compiler of a dictionary and legendary tea drinker, will host a gin tasting at the end of next month.
There will be a suitably 18th-century evening sampling a range of 6 premium gins produced in the UK and overseas, covering a variety of styles, including London Dry, Old Tom, Fruity, Navy Strength and Contemporary.
The tasting is being lead by wine and spirit merchants Nickolls and Perks (est 1797).
During the evening there’ll be facts about the history of the spirit and its association with London around the time of Dr Johnson, plus a short gin-related quiz with a gin-related prize.
Tickets are on sale now, cost £30 per person and can be booked here.
