You asked… We listened…

Welcome to the new improved Gin Jamboree!

Gin Jamboree is already Britain’s original and best celebration of the ‘Gin Craze’! True to their definition, our Gin Jamborees are ‘a large celebration, typically a lavish and boisterous one’ all with the focus on the UK’s favourite tipple: Gin!

Now, in our fourth year, we’ve decided to up the ante – We are now showcasing up to 150 Gins at each event, all of which are described in our detailed tasting booklet and each coming with it’s own “perfect mix” - i.e. the best tonic or other mixer & garnish to pair with it. All of them made by our expert team of bartenders.

Also, new for this season is ‘Sebastian’s Stash’. Our cheeky Gin Fox has had a delicious range of high strength, unusual, rare and often expensive Gins that perhaps you will not have encountered anywhere else. These were previously stashed in his hide out but now he is offering the chance for you to try them too!

And that is not all! If your thirst is also for knowledge, then you might like to book one of our new ‘breakout sessions’. These are held in an adjoining room to the main event and last for around half an hour. During this time, you will learn a little more about the wonderful world of gin and, of course, taste a few carefully selected gins by our experts. We’ll guide you through a bit of gin history, fun facts, how Gin is made, the different styles of Gin and chat botanicals, tonics, mixers and garnishes. All delivered in a fun, light-hearted way. Let the Learning Be Gin!

So what are you waiting for? Whether it is you first time or you are a returning gin jamboree veteran, don’t delay in booking a ticket to one of new and improved events today!

Gin-thusiasts flock to Stoke for new World Record

More than 500 gin lovers descended on Stoke’s Kings Hall on Friday 11th November in an attempt to break the Guinness World Record for the ‘largest gin tasting event at a single venue’.

The gathering was organised by Andrew Wilson of Old School Wines, Tittensor and smashed the target of 250 people by double.

“We’ve seen an explosion in the popularity of gin over the past few years and our Gin Jamborees have been getting bigger and bigger yet continue to sell out,” said Andrew.

“During the summer we contacted Guinness World Records to register our official bid which sold out within weeks, leaving us with an extensive ‘reserve’ list of folks who wanted to take part.”

The tasting session included an eye-watering amount of gin and tonic: 100 different types of gin from around the world were on offer with 1,000 bottles available in total, 300kg of ice were used to chill a staggering 5,000 bottles of tonic water with a team of 30 mixologists serving a diverse variety of craft G&Ts and speciality cocktails. Guests were also treated to ‘flair mixology’ demonstrations from mobile cocktail specialist Flow-Motion with entertainment provided by DJ Al Jones and freestyle dancers from Stafford-based troop Dance Nuvo.

The event also marked the launch of Old School Gin - the company’s first foray into the spirit making business. “We've used our 35 years of knowledge and expertise in the fine wine and spirits trade to develop a rhubarb flavoured gin,” said Andrew. “We’ve drawn inspiration from the botanicals and produce grown at our sister venue, Sugnall Walled Garden near Eccleshall.”
