LOVE GIN? GET TO GIN FIELDS? AT THE HIGH FIELD

Love a refreshing gin cocktail or classic gin and tonic?  Want to learn a bit more about this great English tipple in the glorious surroundings of a gorgeous city gastropub garden?  Then get to The High Field in Edgbaston on Saturday 13th August for Gin Fields.

 

Gin Fields is a fabulous festival for the grown-ups that’s all about celebrating the great drink that is gin. The entire afternoon and evening will be dedicated to it, and there’ll be oodles of ways to try Mother’s Ruin as well as discovering things you never knew about gin.

 

Sidle up to the big outside bar and take a peak at the fantastic selection of premium gins on offer.  There’ll be favourites from the High Field’s list like Brockmans, Hendricks and Whitley Neill as well as a few special guest appearances from some rare and unusual gins. Look out for Salcombe Gin, a smooth and delicious gin handcrafted in Devon using 13 different botanicals, the finest English wheat spirit and  pure Dartmoor water and Brilliant Gin, a delicately flavoured artisan small batch spirit, alongside William Chase GB and Big Boss Gin.

 

Expert gin makers from some of these top distillers will also be on hand to share their love of gin and chat to you about its heritage, character and flavour, and then it will be down to the serious business of tasting.

 

Sip on a refreshing gin and elderflower slush puppy or a fruity gin bramble or shake things up with a sensational gin with pink grapefruit.  Cool down with a Jude’s G&T ice cream and lollies from Birmingham newcomers Creamed Pops. There will also be the ultimate G&T as well as cocktails galore.  Listen to sounds from the DJ who will be spinning the decks all afternoon and pick something tasty from the BBQ to go with your gin.

 

“We’ve all got a soft spot for gin here at The High Field and our grand gins always slip down a treat,” says The High Field’s general manager, Sarah Robinson. “But this time we’re making it really special by turning our whole garden into a celebration of the drink.  Whether you fancy a drink that’s long or short, refreshing or sweet, gin is simply great and we look forward to mixing you the perfect one at Gin Fields,” she says.

 

Tickets for Gin Fields at The High Field cost £10 and are only available on the door on the day, Saturday 13th August, from 2pm.  Entry fee includes a G&T on arrival, gin tasters and a keepsake Grand Gin glass for mixing the perfect gin at home.
