The Gaslight Bar & Brasserie is celebrating the world of gin on Thursday September 29, as it hosts a gin masterclass in association with Gins of the World from 7.30pm.
The excitement surrounding the introduction of new gin brands globally and the growth in popularity of gin has led to many referring to a ‘gin revolution’. Galway’s favourite city centre destination is joining forces with Gins of the World to showcase three world class gins on the night. Guests attending the gin masterclass will savour premium gins — Shortcross, Gin Sul, and GinRaw — as they learn the unique story of each and how best to serve.
Shortcross Gin was the dreamchild of David and Fiona Boyd-Armstrong. They built a small distillery with a stunning copper pot-still at Crossgar, Co Down. Authenticity is at the heart of Shortcross gin as the Boyd-Armstrongs use botanicals growing around their Rademon Estate Distillery, such as wild clover, elderflowers, elderberries, and home-grown apples to make their sublime gin. It is not surprising that Shortcross Gin has won awards at some of the world’s leading spirits competitions.
The term ‘small batch production’ can genuinely be applied to Gin Sul as it is distilled in a petite 100 litre copper pot still. Stephan’s Gin Sul is a citrus melody of Algarve lemons with an aroma from the Portuguese rockrose that evokes memories of essential oils.
GinRaw has successfully earned its title as the Gastronomic Gin from Barcelona. Using a low temperature distillation process popular in the kitchens of Michelin star restaurants to ensure the essences of ingredients such as lemon peel, kaffir lime leaves, black cardamom, and coriander are transported to the finished liquid.
Following the gin masterclass, each guest will receive a complimentary Gin Sul and tonic, served with a selection of tapas – the perfect way to kickstart the weekend vibe.
The Gaslight Bar & Brasserie is casual, informal, and the perfect choice for a great night out. Join the team at the gin masterclass to learn more about the world of gin, sample three premium gins, relax and enjoy the good vibes of Galway.
