So you like a gin cocktail? Of course you do, it’s London 2016. Well, you’re in for a hell of a treat at Rivington Shoreditch the next time you stop by for a Christmassy drink from their wintery menu. Any customer on the mother’s ruin will be invited to pluck a message in a bottle from the restaurant’s Christmas tree. The message may mean free gin cocktails (yes please!), a complimentary meal or even a trip around Plymouth Gin’s distillery. Cocktails include dry gin mixed with spruce needle tincture, or a navy strength gin with vermouth, maraschino and bitters. Forget Santa and get involved with Father Ginmass this year.
In other booze news, a gin hotel is opening in London next month.
