When it comes to spirits, do you have clear priorities? Is your go-to drink the fruity tipple that has made many a glass of tonic taste great? Can you taste the difference between Tanqueray and Hendricks?
If you answered yes to any of the above, then you'd best mark June 10 in your calendar. Because there's a special date for everything, that's when World Gin Day falls this year — and you'd better believe that Dutch Courage Officers' Mess has put together a series of gin-focused masterclasses to celebrate the occasion.
That's what you'd expect from a bar that has more than 120 gins on its menu, but they really have outdone themselves this time. Start things off with a history of the beverage in question, enjoy a few food and drink pairings, and work your way up to cocktails. And, for even more fun in-between sessions, lounge around downstairs, listen to all-day soundtrack of live entertainment, win a few prizes and keep wetting your whistle at gin tastings.
