No.1’s Gin Tasting With Darnley’s

no.1 gin tasting

We enjoyed an evening of all things gin with our lovely readers in Edinburgh!

Thank you to everyone who came along to our first EVER reader Gin Tasting on Thursday 25th July at the stylish InterContinental Edinburgh The George.

No.1’s Gin Tasting with Darnley’s

Held in the hotel’s Hanover Suite, guests were treated to a luxurious drinks reception with our drinks partner, Darnley‘s where they sampled their limited edition Very Berry gin. This was paired with Franklin & Sons flavoursome Rhubarb & Hibiscus tonic – the perfect combo!

And once our readers were snapped by No.1‘s photographer, they each received an amazing goody bag (with products from brands including Thorntons, Scottish Fine Soaps and Franklin & Sons tonics for them to try the ultimate G&T at home) and could enter into our grand prize competition – an overnight stay at the gorgeous Stobo Castle! 

Darnley’s expert, Emma Hooper, then kicked off No.1‘s gin tasting and guests embarked on a journey of gin where they learned all about the history, what goes into making the drink and also sampled a few from Darnley’s themselves.

Remember to keep your eyes peeled for your picture which could appear in our Events pages…
