It's time to let the weekend BE-GIN! Conker Gin is taking over the Urban Beach hotel on Saturday the 22nd of June and we couldn't be more excited.
Come on down and see us this weekend for a chance to meet distilling dude & owner of the delicious Conker Gin, Rupert. Rupert will be chatting to you about all things Gin, teaching you about his distillery in Southbourne, his foraged botanicals and why he loves bottling by hand.
You’ll get the chance to taste all FOUR of Conker's awesome spirits with a range of tonics. We will tell you a little bit about them below, to give you a teaser of what’s to come:
Dorset Dry Gin
This one’s a classic. It has notes of elderberries, samphire and gorse flowers with botanicals from across the Dorset coast and the new forest. It’s not only delicious, but the bottle looks absolutely beautiful. Our favourite in a classic G & T.
Cold Brew Coffee Liqueur
Now this one is PERFECT in an espresso martini. This one tastes purely of delicious, high-quality coffee – specifically Ethiopian and Brazillian coffees that are sustainably sourced from farms in Sao Paulo. There are even a few sweeter vanilla like hints to it. Conker Cold Brew has won loads of awards for not only its taste – but even its packaging. Everything about this one shouts YUM x
Port Barrel Gin
Vanilla oak, warm spice and sweet red fruits. This is a limited edition Gin with a deliciously citrusy twist. It’s pretty in pink, unique and definitely one to taste. We don’t want to give too much away with this one, you’ll just have to come and see for yourself x
Navy Strength Gin
Coming in at a heavy 57% - Conker created this one in honour of the RLNI. For every bottle bought, they give £5 to the RLNI which is just awesome. Bold and strong, the Navy Strength gin leaves a lingering warmth after each sip.
