Some interesting gins to try.
03 February 2018
Pairing two of life’s simple joys – gin and good food – this superb two-part experience is perfect for whiling away an indulgent afternoon together. So set your sights on the boutique, Grade II listed Grange Hotel, York. Just a stone’s throw from the historic city centre, The Grange offers a luxurious base to enjoy your experience.
You’ll kick things off with a masterclass and tasting courtesy of local gin experts, Still & Heart. Highly personal, Still & Heart offer bespoke experiences to help the ‘gin curious’ learn and discover more about their favourite drink. Gin cocktail in hand, you’ll be guided through a number of different gins, garnishes and mixers. Along the way, you’ll learn a little about Britain’s complicated relationship with the famous juniper infused spirit. Experiment with up to four different gins before ending the masterclass with a large G&T of your choice to take with lunch.
You’ll take your two course lunch in the hotel’s flagship Ivy Brasserie. A 2 Rosette eatery serving classic food with a French influence, you’ll be served a carefully compiled table d’hôte menu. With Chef Will Nicol specializing in gutsy flavours produced with the best of Yorkshire fare, you’re sure of a super meal.
Upon arrival to the hotel, you and your guest will be greeted and shown through to the first part of your experience with Still & Heart.
Having sampled some superb gins, and with a bespoke G&T to take with you, you’ll take lunch in the hotel’s flagship Ivy Brasserie. Here you will enjoy a delicious two courses from a set menu.

Some interesting gins to try.
Me and my wife really enjoyed the Gin Tasting session - there were several gins to try with some interesting facts about each. The lunch was lovely too accompanied by a gin and tonic of course!!
