Gin Lovers Rejoice: Slingsby Gin Launches At-home Interactive Experience

Ultra-premium Slingsby Gin has launched a brand new interactive experience for Gin lovers to enjoy from the comfort of their own home…virtually! The 90-minute session will be available to book every weekend and hosted by an expert Slingsby Gin mixologist.

The virtual Gin experience brings the spirit of Harrogate to participants’ homes, taking the very best elements of Slingsby’s in-house Spirit of Gin Experience (that usually takes place in the brands home town of Harrogate at their experience store), and combining it with some extra special content.

Gin enthusiasts will learn all about the history of gin and alcohol, followed by the story of Harrogate and the Slingsby brand itself. There will also be plenty of gin facts on offer for Gin fans to dive in and learn (did you know Gin used to be mixed with gunpowder and set alight to “prove” its strength?) - all whilst sipping on a perfectly crafted G&T, delivered by the brand ahead of the session.

Each Gin enthusiast will receive an Experience Pack delivered to their door bursting full of Slingsby goodies, including: four Slingsby Solo pre-mix Gin cocktails, a highball glass and some nibbles to enjoy on the night. For those wanting to spice up a special occasion, Slingsby is also offering private experiences for larger groups – the ultimate birthday party, or way to make a special celebration unforgettable.

Slingsby Solo is a bottle of premixed double G&T which has been made using award-winning Slingsby Gin. Each kit will contain a Slingsby London Dry with Indian Tonic Water, a signature classic made with locally sourced botanicals; Slingsby Rhubarb Gin with Elderflower Tonic Water, infused with the finest Yorkshire rhubarb; Slingsby Gooseberry Gin mixed with Mediterranean Tonic and Slingsby’s newest flavour variant, Marmalade, also complimented with Mediterranean tonic.

Co-Founder of Spirit of Harrogate, Marcus Black comments:
“I’m extremely proud of our talented mixology team, their passion and knowledge about Gin is second to none. We have been truly inspired by how brands and companies have adapted during these difficult times, and our new Gin experience has been devised to be interactive and enjoyable for guests, whilst still delivering the same level of quality and service as if they were taking part in one of our in-house experiences at the Spirit of Harrogate Experience Store. These sessions are the perfect way to kick start the weekend with a G&T in hand.”

Slingsby Gin’s Live Virtual Gin Experience is available to book on a Friday night at 7.30pm or on Saturday at 3.30pm. Open sessions and private experiences are both available, and all sessions will be hosted on Zoom. Tickets can be purchased for £30 exclusively at the Spirit of Harrogate website.
