Summer’s just around the corner, and we’re already dreaming of lazying by the sea as we bask in the glory of the Mediterranean sun and catch up with our friends over a cocktail or two.
And nothing screams summer more than a nice and refreshing gin and tonic, am I right?
If you love gin as much as we do, boy have we got some good news for you…
The FRANKS’ Gin Fair is coming back!
After the success of last year’s debut, FRANKS Gentlemen’s Essentials and all of Malta’s leading suppliers are teaming up again to give all you gin lovers the gin fair that you deserve.
And in case you somehow aren’t already 150% convinced, here are six reasons why you absolutely need to go.
1. There will be over 100 gins available on the night
Yes you read right, 100 gins!
Starting from classic brands such as Hendricks, Tanqueray 10 and Gin Mare to oddballs like Monkey 47, to boutique distilleries like Edinburgh Gin, Cotswold and The Botanist. In fact, 90% of the gins found in FRANKS Gentlemen’s Essentials at The Plaza shall be available on the night.
2. A multitude of tonics will be available too
Obviously, the Gin is only one half of the classic G&T, so the Gin Fair will also be serving you the largest selection of tonics to choose from with brands like Fever Tree, Thomas Henry, By the Dutch, Peter Spanton and Fentimans available to pair with your gin.
And of course, everyone there will be trained to make sure they provide you with the perfect pairing; whether you’re looking for something classic, or a bit of a more fancy, fruity, flowery twist.
3. The Pulled Meat Company will be providing you with tasty nibbles
It’s obviously never a great idea to drink on an empty stomach, so the guys from PMC will be keeping everyone fed with a vast selection of tasty bites throughout the night.
4. Live swing music will fill the air
So make sure you take your dancing shoes with you, because you’re sure to want to bust out a move or two at some point. Probably after your third glass.
5. Four gin professionals will be there to give masterclasses
You can choose between Bombay Sapphire, Tarquins, Ferdinands and Cotswolds gins to learn about what makes them so special, straight from the people who know best.
6. All this against the stunning surroundings of Fort St Elmo
Valletta’s glorious fort will set the scene for Friday the 21st June, so it’s the perfect way to end your work week off and kick summer off!
Enjoy a nice summery night out with your closest friends, savouring the bliss of a summer night in the majestic capital city. Sounds like a plan, right?
Tickets are on sale now, for just €40 each, and you can get yours here.
But hurry up! Because if last year’s event is anything to go by, these tickets will be gone sooner than you can say ‘Elderflower flavoured gin’.
