If you’re feeling skint, a gin bar in Stockton is serving gin for 1p

Feeling the pinch? Let us introduce you to a gin bar in Stockton that really gets the struggle.

Many a pub, bar and distillery are saying they understand that you’re strapped for cash with some awesome gin offers. Whilst December is traditionally the month people pick up a nice bottle of booze, January is an even better time for a good deal.

Doom, gloom and diets aside, retailers want shoppers to be trying new gins and stocking up with offers aplenty. But if you’re like many people post-Christmas, there’s not a penny in the coffer for that.

By good fortune, one bar is taking Skint January one step further with 1p gin.

Oscar’s Gin Bar in Stockton-on-Tees is offering customers £1 for their first G&T before 10pm every Friday this month on Gordon’s gin. On so-called Penny Thursdays, turn a single into a double for just one penny. And if you’re for spending more than a penny or a pound, Oscar’s is said to stock over 100 different gins.

Open tonight from 7pm and yes we are serving Gin for a PENNY!!
