Gin, gin and more gin

Gin was big news in 2015 and demand will continue to rise over the next 12 months. We can accredit this growth to the younger millennial drinker, those seeking out provenance and top quality. But where next for gin?
Flavoured gin? More theatre in the serve? It’ll be interesting to see where distillers and bartenders take the nation’s favourite spirit. We certainly have started to stock the odd flavoured gin recently and have added a gin list that features some really keen garnishing – not just a slice and ice.
Taking a cue from Spain: it's time to give your humble G&T something of a continental makeover. “Crown” yours with everything from cinnamon to Sichuan peppercorns, from rose petals to rosemary; serve it in a different glass designed to bring its botanicals to life; and enjoy your serve perfectly frosted all the way to the last sip.

For years, Spaniards have been serving their G&Ts in ways that the typical punter might find, shall we say, a bit surprising. For starters, theirs are poured in enormous copa de balon glasses instead of the classic highballs. They're packed full of large, very cold ice cubes, so they last longer under that famous Spanish sun. And they come garnished with all kinds of ingredients that would be quite at home in your spice cabinet.
