Fords Gin

Then you’ll love Fords Gin who will be presenting the History of Gin according to cocktails.

Partnering with some of London’s best bar’s Fords Gin brings a cocktail odyssey through the ages. Guests will sip their way through various cocktails that have forged gin’s rich history.

The History of Gin according to cocktails will take guests on a journey throughout history. From the early days of gin punch, to the current Golden Age of the Cocktail, the rise and fall of gin and cocktails has been intertwined through history. Guests will sample up to seven delicious cocktails which detail why Gin and cocktails have been close bedfellows throughout time.

Ladies & Gentlemen, Kentish Town on 19 June

Jim’s Cafe, Clapton on 27 June

Stillwater, Wandsworth on 12 July

“Fords Gin hosted a “History of Gin” tasting at the Mulwary cocktail bar in Soho. Tickets are only £10 and you start with a free full cocktail, get to taste 5 cocktails (shot size), and finish with full cocktail, so it was an amazing deal. Throughout the event you learned about how gin got its start and evolved over time.”

Milena review post Amazon, Whisky, Master of Malt

“This is not your usual gin tasting and history lesson. Instead it covers an interesting history of gin cocktails, the origins, the flavour profiles and how to make them. It was fabulous to try the different cocktails and understand how Ford gin was created to go perfectly in them. Nick who took us through all of this was interesting, engaging and friendly. He also gave us a cute book which had the recipes and facts included. So much fun and completely not what I expected :)!”

“I had the wonderful chance to try this experience and I was so impressed. The seating was set up with a gin map and book with a few glasses. Not being a big gin drinker I wasn’t sure what to expect but we got a lot of gin for one so value for money was great but not only that, I learnt a lot about cocktails and got try try some great drinks. I highly recommend this experience.”
