Hepple Gin Tasting and Snacks, with Valentine Warner
Hepple Gin is made in the moorland wilds by Hadrian’s Wall, on the beautiful Hepple Estate.
To start your evening’s gin journey there is that purest and most delicious expression of the spirit at its finest: a Gin Martini “painfully cold and painfully dry”, just as Fergus Henderson likes it! And as a pairing, a companion both in flavour profile and decadence, the Oysters Rockefeller. Then on to an autumnal surprise: a beetroot cocktail with its sweet earthy notes cutting through the rich cured trout: Scotland by way of Scandinavia!
The Army and Navy shows an orgeat almondy richness with your crispy curried treats, and to finish there’s a distillate which moves away from juniper – Hepple’s new Douglas Fir liqueur, evocative and fascinating, with the sweet delight that is the St. JOHN Eccles Cake to send you on your merry way.
