Summertime Gin-spiration

Floral? Tropical? A hint of spice? With our new gin wall ‘good to glow’, it’s time to find the gin that tickles you pink. Our gin-tasting events at Johns of Instow and Appledore welcome people from across North Devon & will help you and your friends to do just that – taste spectacular gin, with free samples and plenty of inspiration from our knowledgeable suppliers.
This is also the chance to discover the uplifting stories and differing personalities behind our local gin brands, so that you can enjoy matching one up with someone special in your life. It’s a thoughtful way to buy a gift for someone otherwise just too darn hard to buy for!
Furthermore, we’ll be full of tips on how to dress-to-impress your gins ready for your summer parties (spoiler-alert: it’s no longer about the lemons!).
So, who’s visiting next on our gin event calendar?

Papillion Gin: Saturday 3rd August, Instow 12.00pm – 4.00pm.

Make our gin event a tonic for the soul…

Our apologies, a cliché line to gin and bear, but it’s true. When you pop over to Johns to take advantage of our free gin-tastings, allow time to experience our café-in-a-deli, a ferry trip across the estuary to Instow or Appledore store or simply a nostalgic, sweet treat at our nearby beach hut. Alternatively, take one of our pre-filled picnic hampers to enjoy on the beach afterwards! Whatever your style, we’ve plenty of ways to extend the feel-food factor of those G&T bubbles.

‘Chin-chin’…or perhaps ‘gin-gin’, we hope to see you there.
