The organisers of Scotland’s biggest indoor gin festival, which is usually held each year in Hamilton, have come up with a novel way of bringing the event to your home – well almost!
With Covid-19 pushing the Hamilton Town House GinFall festival into 2021 those behind the popular event, Social and Cocktail Events, have come up with another way to keep gin-lovers involved.
The company say events have become increasingly challenging, with typical client events such as weddings, exhibitions and hen parties being rescheduled to 2021 or beyond.
However, their new business venture, Social and Cocktail 2GO, will allow them to deliver freshly made cocktails to customers across Glasgow and Lanarkshire.
Teaming up with McLean’s Gin for this venture, the gin will be produced and dispatched from McLean’s heaquarters and gin lab in Strathaven.
Customers will have four different types of cocktail product to choose from:
Blended – these cocktails will be created frozen and served in a 12-ounce glass with dome lid and straw. There will be six classic blended cocktails including: Strawberry Daiquiri, Pina Colada and the Pornstar Martini.
Pouched – these cocktails will be delivered in a sealed drinks pouch, with instructions on how best to enjoy your drink at home. Pouched cocktails will include: Zombie, Terrys Chocolate Orange and Maple Old Fashioned.
Boxed – these cocktails will be six exclusives – premium McLeans Gin cocktails. The ingredients in each box will make four cocktails and include all the ingredients, garnishes and the instruction card. Boxed cocktails will include: Blood Orange Negroni, Spiced Apricot Spritz, Bakewell Sling.
Seasonal – these cocktails will be a constantly changing selection of specially created concoctions, kicking off with Halloween, which will include the Screaming Peach and the Monster Mash Margarita.
All cocktails will use fresh ingredients, premium spirits and deliveries can be scheduled in one-hour windows.
Cocktail prices range from £6-£8 and there will be a standard £5 delivery charge on all orders.
