World Gin Day is upon us on Saturday 10th June!  In my household this day will not go unmarked!

If you fancy combining this with a little trip away then over to The Welcombe Hotel in Stratford Upon Avon for their Summer Afternoon Garden Gin Tea.  Just perfect for gin lovers looking for a refreshing summer take on the quintessential British classic!

Trade in the traditional glass of high tea fizz for a refreshing Hendricks gin and tonic,  presented in a china tea pot over ice and lemon, alongside luxury finger sandwiches, miniature open rolls, freshly baked scones, the hotel’s finest jam, clotted cream, delicate pastries, petit fours, and a macaroon, as well as the obligatory endless loose leaf tea of your choice (or coffee).

Enjoy it within the hotel’s picturesque gardens overlooking 157 acres of breathtaking landscaped gardens, fountains and water features.  (Priced at £35.00 per person).

Try this delicious Gin based recipe.
