The first ever Cannon Hall Farm Gin Festival is set to be a great event as the weather forecast looks perfect for enjoying gin! As well as the chance to taste a huge variety of gins, there’ll be a great party atmosphere with live music, tasty food and a gin cocktail bar.
Taste Fine Wines & Cannon Hall Farm
We have been supplying Cannon Hall Farm Shop and the White Bull Restaurant with wine, beers, spirits and soft drinks for a long time, and we have always had a close relationship. As the gin boom has been growing and growing, so has the range of gins that Cannon Hall Farm have been requesting from us. In recent months they have been selling out as fast as we can supply, in particular, Zymurgorium Sweet Violet and Gin Divine. So it only seemed logical to hold a Gin Festival on their vast and picturesque grounds.
We were asked to recommend some Yorkshire gins for sale at the event, and how best to serve them, and we naturally leant towards Slingsby Rhubarb, Masons and Jacqson Gin. We were also asked if we could bridge the gap between retailer and producers by introducing Cannon Hall Farm to some of the gin distillers that we know. So we introduced them to Ray at Gin Divine and Ian at Tearaway Spirit (Oh My Gin 45), who will both be showcasing at this event. We have also spoke with other distillers who may be appearing at future events throughout the summer.
What To Expect at The Cannon Hall Farm Gin Festival
You can meet distillers and try free samples while learning more about the fantastic gins they produce. With bottles for sale as well, you can choose your favourites to take home with you! For the price of £15 you get entry to the Gin Festival, a Cannon Hall Farm gin glass and a handy gin guide specially created for the event.
On the evening, G&Ts and cocktails will be available on a token system to make everything quick and easy for you. Tokens are £5 each with one token paying for a single measure of gin, garnish and a mixer and two tokens paying for a gin cocktail. Tokens will be available for purchase at the event with cash and card, or you can pre-ordering online when you buy your tickets. Beers, wine and soft drinks will also be available.
The Cannon Hall Farm Gin Festival takes place on Saturday 12 May from 6:30pm until 11:30pm. You can buy your tickets online here, and you must have a ticket to gain entry (no ticket sales on the night). At going to press there aren’t many tickets left, so you better hurry! Also remember, as this is an 18+ event where alcohol is served, you may be asked to show your ID if you are lucky enough to look under 25.
