Win a Gin Garden masterclass and gin-themed goodies!

Gin Garden has been bringing its cocktails to UK gardens for three years. To celebrate, they’re giving one lucky reader a selection of gin-themed prizes.



No drink embodies the connection between alcohol and the natural world quite like gin. As well as the juniper berry, gin distilling relies on the careful selection of botanicals – fruits, herbs, flowers and other natural produce – to give it its unique flavour and aroma.

The Gin Garden was created to reinforce this connection between our favourite tipple and the meadows, fields and hedgerows that inspire it. At each event, Gin Garden’s master cocktail makers use seasonal local produce and premium spirits to create drinks unique to the event and location.

And they aren’t just skilled mixologists. The Gin Garden also consists of passionate botanists, perfumers, herbalists and gardeners. They’re happy to share their knowledge over a cocktail, with talks on gin distillation and infusion, foraging, mixology and herbalism all on the menu.  

And now, after bringing its unique mix of cocktails and botany to museums and galleries like Kew Gardens, the Chelsea Physic Garden and the Horniman Museum, the Gin Garden is available to hire for private events.

It’s sure to make any party unforgettable. The team will even bring its own garden along – so any space can be transformed into an oasis of British flora. If you’d like to book the Gin Garden for your next event, head to the website here.
