An Italian-Style Cherry Garden Gin Bar Is Serving Class in a Glass This Summer


Botanist Cherry Garden Gin Bar

Three Botanist bars in England will play host to classy pop-up gin garden bars that will bring the taste of Italy to the UK.

The Luxardo Cherry Garden Gin Bars will open from August to September for a late summer season of Italian outdoor drinking.

Outdoor gin gardens have been all the rage this summer and here’s hoping for a strong end to the season so we can enjoy Mediterranean-style cherry gin in some sunshine.

The bars will serve original summer cocktails using Italy’s new Luxardo Sour Cherry Gin and also its traditional London dry gin style.

The Botanist West Bridgford, Nottingham is set to host the launch weekend starting 22 August which is when the public can first see the Cherry Garden Gin Bar.

The launch will be followed by The Botanist Alderley Edge from 23 August and The Botanist Newcastle from 30 August.

Cocktail masterclasses will be presented by Luxardo global brand ambassador Gareth ‘G’ Franklin.

You’ll be able to explore the natural botanical flavours of gin, fruit and herbal garnishes, and learn by receiving tips on mixing and
presentation.

Long, lighter aperitivo style drinks as well as perfected classics with a twist will be served. Cocktails on the menu include Cherry, Blossom & Tonic and Italian 75.

If you share a picture of yourself sipping your Luxardo gin via Instagram you might even win a trip for yourself and a group of friends to Venice, which is near the home of Luxardo in Padua.
