Mothers Day Gin pairing with supper evening 30th March
On Sunday 30th March, we will be hosting an evening devoted to Britain's most quintessential spirit, with a gastronomic gin supper held with the Cambridge Distillery at our River Bar Steakhouse and Grill. To be held on Mother's Day, this "Mother's Ruin" gin pairing evening has been designed as the perfect treat for gin loving mums.
Join us for a decadent three course pairing menu, alongside expert talks and demonstrations explaining the provenance and production of this highly individual and historic spirit.
The event will be hosted by our acclaimed Head Chef, Angus Martin, and Will Lowe, Master Distiller at the Cambridge Distillery and a world-renowned mixologist, who has created drinks for the Queen at her Coronation Anniversary at The Ritz.
We'll start with a talk from Will, an expert in the spirits industry, he'll reveal the history behind and construction of this complex spirit along with demonstrations on creating finely balanced botanical infusions. Angus will be on hand to share his inspiration behind each of the specially created dishes.
You'll start your evening in style with the freshly distilled Autumn-Winter blend of Cambridge Gin, produced exclusively at the Cambridge Distillery, paired with its definitive counterpart, Indian tonic. We'll then move on to enjoy a sumptuous three course tasting menu of Angus' expertly prepared gin-infused dishes, each with a bespoke pairing of individually matched gin cocktails created by Will.
Launched in 2012, the Cambridge Distillery is the first distillery in Cambridge, and has quickly become renowned for developing seasonal and innovative blends of gin. It has produced bespoke gins which are served in some of the world's best restaurants, including Noma in Denmark.
