Nicholson's celebrate the glorious spirit #GinFest2016

This summer (7th July – 20th August), Nicholson's pubs across London and the UK celebrate the glorious spirit of gin with a showcase of 31 different premium versions of the tipple, together with unique gin infused cocktails, master-classes, gin parties, and a raft of free daily giveaways.

Download the Gin Fest 2016 passport – your ultimate guide to gin this summer – on the Nicholson's app and start collecting to receive 1/3 off food or gin and tonic for £1. Collect stamps every time you enjoy a drink, for a chance to win prizes including a VIP trip to the Plymouth Gin Distillery.

Gin aficionados will have an excuse to visit their local time and time again as a total of 31 high-end gins will be on offer broken down into categories to best match each tipple: Floral & Modern; Light & Citrusy Savoury & Dry; Juniper Heavy & Robust; and Something a Bit Different.

New to Nicholson's gin cabinets; sample Wisconsin distilled Death's Door – one of the leading craft gins in the USA served garnished with a sage leaf. Closer to home and hailing from Peckham, London – Little Bird is a lovely light gin championing grapefruit as its lead botanical; and for true gin connoisseurs – Monkey 47 is an unfiltered gin made in Germany's Black Forest, created in individual batches using a complex set of 47 different botanicals.

Look out for gin master-classes, delicious gin infusion cocktails, loads of giveaways, and a Secret Gin Party to culminate, as Nicholson's pubs celebrate their extensive gin range and 140 years of British gin heritage.

Nicholson's love of gin goes way back – Founder William Nicholson started his career by running the family gin distillery in London, and Nicholson's are still serving the best gins in many of those original gin palaces today. So where better to celebrate the ideal summer drink than in your Nicholson's local this summer?
