Is gin your favourite tipple of the spirits? Gin really seems to be having a drink renaissance and is so hot right now. Mr Fogg’s Gin Parlour has unveiled the Encyclopaedia Gintonica, which is set to be a menu for the most keen gin connoisseurs. Mr Fogg’s boasts London’s largest gin collections, dividing them into 10 categories including: London Dry, Old Tom, Light & Crisp, American, Floral and Aromatic, Fruity, Genever, Barrel Aged, Vintage and Gin Liqueurs. Reticent of the unique Victorian Fogg’s setting, a Tale of Tails, is their new cocktail menu, each drink an experience embodying a golden pastime of theatre. The preview night highlighted three delicious concoctions from The Ginrietta ( Tanqueray London Dry Gin, raspberry puree, cranberry juice, lemon juice, sugar syrup, topped with Fentimans ginger beer) The Bloomsbury (Tanqueray No. Ten, honey, angostura bitters, a dash of soda water and a twist of lemon) to The Charles G+T (Tanqueray No. Ten gin and Fentimans tonic).
The gin parlour is immersive and offers more than just a run of the mill cocktail bar. If you haven’t been the first time you do, be prepared to be in awe of the vintage setting. Alongside the Gintonica, Mr Fogg’s Gin Parlour have recently launched Saturday afternoon G & Tea, where guests can indulge in their love of gin by sampling a selection of more than 300 varieties before embarking on their afternoon tea sojourn.
