It’s Gin O’Clock!
It's always Gin o'clock at The George!
Our cosy lounge bar is the perfect place to relax and sample a new craft gin, or an established brand of gin like Bombay Sapphire, Gordon’s, Beefeater and Tanqueray. With over 30 premium gins to taste, plus a specialty gin each month, there is always something new to try.
All our gins are served in a large balloon glass with ice, a specially chosen premium tonic to enhance the natural flavours and distinctive botanicals of each gin, and a complimentary garnish.
February’s Gin of the Month is Pinkster Gin
Pinkster makes a refreshingly different G&T, with its delicate flavour appealing both to the seasoned gin drinkers and recent converts. Pinkster is deliciously dry, with a hint of fruit and an exceptionally smooth finish. As you taste, there’s raspberry on the nose with the juniper coming through and then a slight spice that develops and lingers.
And as February is the month of love, we think the pink colour is perfect for our Gin of the Month at The George Hotel.
