It's All About Gin

Published on Wednesday 11 January 2017

Gin is certainly the drink of the moment and here at Lewis and Cooper we’ve many years’ experience of sourcing unusual Gins from artisan suppliers. We currently stock a range of over 45 different gins, all specially selected for their quality.

Today we’ve been pleased to welcome the BBC local news team to our Northallerton store, who visited us to discover more about the recent boom in the popularity of gin from our wine department manager and renowned expert, Angela Metcalfe.

Angela demonstrated how she tastes gin properly to release the full power of the botanicals and showed them the wide range of flavours and styles available. The feature will be appearing on BBC Look North sometime in the next couple of weeks so keep an eye out for us.

Lewis and Cooper is unique in featuring our famous ‘Gin Trolley’, where Angela will demonstrate how to taste gin, the wide range of botanicals used in the production of the spirit and how to get the most out of a glass by using aromatics to complement the chosen gin. Angela frequently rolls her Gin Trolley out for tastings in both stores, so keep an eye on our facebook page for dates and come and learn more about the fascinating world of gins.

We also stock a small selection of gins online, so if you fancy a hamper with a twist why not check out our Gin and Nibbles hamper or add one in to a create your own hamper for a personal touch.
