The Gin to my Tonic @ Charter hall

The Gin to my Tonic @ Charter hall | England | United Kingdom

NEW FOR 2020! Looking for something other than gin? We’ve got you covered with an array of vodkas, rums, whiskies and bourbon so you can still enjoy the celebrations!

The Gin To My Tonic Festival brings together over 100 different gins from across the UK and beyond. Each gin stocked behind the bars has been selected based on outstanding craftsmanship, delightful flavour and the most enjoyable drinking experiences. The festival is here to take you on a journey of gin discovery! What’s more, we believe gin should be served correctly which is why we offer 35ml serves (as opposed to the average 25ml) as standard.
