What a Day in Store! Free Gin Tasting Tomorrow!!

Not only is it the time to celebrate the Queens official birthday, but this Saturday (June 11th) is WORLD GIN DAY!! Is this a coincidence? We think not, apologies Ma’am.

Now, we believe World Gin Day is a genuine reason to celebrate! Apparently this is the 8th holding of this fabulous occasion and is the biggest and best by far with all sorts of GIN events happening up and down the country! (Not seen any myself, but according to t’internet there are plenty…)

As bona fide genuine Gin lovers and afficionados we have a fantastic range of Gins at The Whalley Wine Shop with well over 60 different types of Gin, and to join in with World Gin Day, we will opening some of them tomorrow especially for you…. and giving them to all our customers to taste free of charge!!

We will be having the following 5 Gins open to taste all day in the shop…..


Batch Lancashire Gin – Made in our very own neck of the woods over in Burnley, hand crafted and using the unusual combination of Frankincense and Myrrh makes a wonderfully elegant Gin and perfect locally produced gift.
Brockmans Gin – The berry bomb Gin! Packed with blueberry flavours, and great served with a twist of grapefruit peel.

Chase Eureka Gin – The second batch of this limited edition from Chase, big citrus flavours of Lemon, Lime, Orange, and Pink grapefruit means no need to garnish!

Koval Gin – A new arrival for us from Boston in the US of A! Dry, spicy, warming and also Kosher.

Puerto de Indias – The newest arrival for us (it’s just come in today!) a beautiful new Strawberry infused gin from Seville… An absolute must try!

What’s more if you find something you like, and if you buy any 2 bottles of Gin, you will receive 10% off! We very rarely discount Gin so this is a fantastic opportunity to really stock up the collection and add some new and unusual bottles to your drinks cabinet at a decent price!

Obviously, we want to look after all your G&T needs so not only are the Gin offers good, but we will also be doing the following superb deals on tonic waters as well…. (I wonder if it is World Tonic Water Day too?!!)
