Bristol Dry Gin is now hosting virtual gin tasting sessionsPosted on: 18 May 2020
The much-loved distillers are taking their popular tasting sessions into cyberspace during lockdown.
The dedicated team at Bristol Dry Gin are officially back in business when it comes to their tasting sessions, taking bookings now for an all-new online experience courtesy of resident tech-wizard, CD-Ron.
Whether you fancy yourself a bit of an expert or you just need an excuse to drink a load of gin, a Bristol Dry Gin tasting might just be exactly what you need to break the routine of almost two months spent in lockdown.
Sessions are open to groups of almost any size (within reason), so you can get on board with a group of mates, some work colleagues who you've started to forget the names of, your family, or anyone else you can get your virtual hands on.
Once you're booked in, the Bristol Dry Gin team will deliver five 5cl bottles to your door, along with tonics and botanicals to pair them with. "This is the only stage of the process that you should probably be fully dressed," they say.
From there, BDG recommend you start playing the Rupert Holmes Piña Colada song on repeat until the moment you log in to your Zoom meeting.
After the inevitable technical issues have been resolved, your host CD-Ron will take you through each of your five gins, explaining the production process and guiding you through the very best pairings.
While we're still not really allowed to go outside and do it in person, this is probably your best opportunity to learn about one of Bristol's favourite distillers while letting loose a bit and have a good laugh at your mate's dodgy lockdown haircut.
