World Gin Day is fast approaching and it is certainly set to be the biggest and most celebrated yet. The date – Saturday June 10th 2017 with tastings and events happening worldwide.
Gin has had a massive revival in recent years and it must be said, even the makers could not have predicted just how big and popular gin has become not just in the UK but throughout the world.
At Fredericks Lounge Bar & Restaurant in Cockermouth, gin is the super refreshing drink or aperitif for many visitors and diners.
Along with artisan tonics and mixers, different herbal flavourings and accompaniments and the diverse choice of gins, it is one of the most popular drinks served at this bar in Cockermouth. There is now a gin for everyone from the traditional juniper botanicals to those with tasting notes of lemon and coriander.
At Fredericks gins are available from all over the world but even more exciting some distilled just 10 miles away. Choose from 10 different gins including the famous Scottish gin Hendricks (great with slices to cucumber) through to lesser known Mare from the Mediterranean (Fredericks like to serve Mare with mango and Fever Tree Mediterranean tonic). Excitingly close to home are three Lake District distilled gins that are not just loved by locals but by bar and restaurant owners and gin lovers throughout the UK. Representing the Lake District is the fabulous Bedrock Gin as well as their Export Strength. Bedrock goes fantastically well with lime and basil and of course Fever Tree tonic.
The gin revolution has further been confirmed with the vast choice of tonic waters now available. Fever Tree is absolutely the brand to mix right now with exciting flavours including the Mediterranean above or the elderflower.
It doesn’t matter what the weather brings on June 10th at Fredericks in Cockermouth. Sip in the sun outside on one of the relaxing outdoor tables or stay inside in the stylish lounge bar. To book a table and to view the full list of gins and food available, visit https://frederickscockermouth.co.uk
