Winter Wine Tasting Update

With less than 50 tickets left for the Big Wine Tasting it's time to tell you a bit more about who'll be there. Tickets are £15 each and can be found here

Winter Wine Tasting- Belgin Gin

As the name suggests, Belgin make gin in Belgium. Based at a very small distillery about half an hour from Brussels, Belgin claim that gin is originally Belgian pointing to a 13th century book called Der Naturen Bloeme…

Belgin’s gins are currently hoovering up medals- their Fresh Hop picking up golds from UK trade magazine The Spirits Business and the American WSWA, and the intense 50 botanical-strong St Cruyt won the Super Premium category at the Gin Masters in 2016.

Thursday 9th November, The Library of Birmingham, £15 a head
