Russian Vodka vs English Gin

This event has finished Took place on: Friday, 10th Jan 2020

 £25

Vodka was first mentioned in a document in 1405 in Poland but was probably first produced in Russia. Over many centuries fashionable drinks in Russia have come and gone but vodka has remained a permanent feature and has recently acquired quality, diversity, sophistication and great character.

Gin, on the other hand, is often called “a spirit of extraordinary complexity and depth” and boasts a much more complicated history than the humble but powerful vodka. It originated in Bruges, which was then part of Holland, and partly explains the origins of the phrase “Dutch courage”. Based on vodka, it was created using the miracle berry – juniperus communis (jenever). It soon found its way to England and became the favourite spirit of 17th-century London.

So come to Pushkin House to taste and compare some scintillating styles of vodka and gin. Some cheese, chocolate and “zakuski” on famous Harrods bread will also be served at the tasting.
