Ashmolean Museum Sat 8 Jun, 12–4pm, Outside on the forecourt
To celebrate World Gin Day, and the two local gins inspired by the collections at the Ashmolean and Botanic Gardens, we’ll be merrymaking on the Museum forecourt on the afternoon of Saturday 8 June.
Come and join us for ice cold gin and tonics, a specially curated, signature Cocktail based on the Ashmolean’s very own gin, deckchairs in the sun, gin tastings, ice creams, and light snacks. As well as sampling both gins on the day, the gins will be on sale outside and in the Museum shop.
Don’t forget your ID if you’re lucky enough to look under 25.
Oxford Botanic Garden Physic Gin
Interesting and complex, this gin is a combination of 25 unique specimens from the Oxford Botanic Garden. Sweet notes of juniper and bay are prominent, but balanced with an intriguing hint of wormwood, gentian and exotic citrus. Herbaceous, savoury, and complex, this is a gin that truly represents 400 years of medicinal botanical cultivation. Click here to buy online.
