Last night I was invited to sample the new range of flavoured gins from Lidl, and you can too this weekend by visiting the Lidl House of Hortus pop up gin club on Castle Street.
You can’t miss the marquee, shaped like a huge Lidl shopping bag in the middle of the street. Once inside the cosy club decorated with botanical plants, roses and fairy lights you can enjoy samples from the supermarket’s Hortus Gin range, served by a dedicated team of mixologists.
Each guest will receive two free-pour serves from the Hortus range, or other spirits from the retailer’s selection.
Personally I loved the delicate and light flavours of the Hortus Citrus Garden Gin with lemon and thyme, where as Mrs Sketcher (not a gin fan) preferred the stronger, sweet (and disguising!) flavours of the Hortus Rhubarb & Ginger Gin Liqueur, with Italian Asti Spumante and mint.
The Lidl House of Hortus tour is a free event but ticketed so book your place via their eventbrite page below. The club is open on the 9th and 10th of November.
