The Free Summer Spirits Fair Saturday 21/06/14

The Oxford Wine Company, 165 Botley Road, Oxford, OX2 0PB.

Our annual Free Summer Spirits Fair returned for a fourth year. A great event in which several of our suppliers come along for a few hours and open up some tasty treats! We were lucky to have Nick Radclyffe from Foxdenton in the shop opening his delicious gins. He showed the whole range including his Sloe Gin and Raspberry Gin. All of his gins were very popular with the crowd.

We also had the highly sought after Monkey 47 gin on tasting and this was my first opportunity to taste it. I was expecting to be a little disappointed given all the hype but it was absolutely stunning. In many ways it actually transcends gin. We ended up serving Martinis made with the Monkey and Carlo Alberto vermouth. I don't remember much after that.
