We had a fantastic time at our Winter Gin Festival 2020
the greenbank’s winter gin festival in falmouth
On the 8th February we banished the winter blues at our gin-tastic festival in Falmouth. From midday, a whole host of suppliers set up shop and prepared for the crowds of gin-lovers, eager to discover fantastic Cornish tipples. With lots of free samples, interactive masterclasses, tasty festival food and toe-tapping music, we partied through the stormy weather outside. Here’s what we got up to at The Greenbank’s Winter Gin Festival 2020.
This year, we were joined by the likes of Tarquin’s, Cornish Moonshine, Monterey, Curio, Agnes Arber and Verdant. Offering their expertise, free samples and behind the scenes knowledge, we hope everyone enjoyed meeting some of the top distilleries and breweries in Cornwall.
For those keen to delve deeper into the drinks industry, there were plenty of masterclasses and demos to get involved in. Our very own Bar Manager Holly Bennetts gave a brilliant demo on how to create your own flavoured gin at home. Curio discussed the versatility of gin in their informal talk, and Salcombe mixed things up with an interactive cocktail making masterclass. Held in The Sundeck, the suppliers all did a great job in keeping the crowds entertained, and everyone learnt lots of interesting facts about their favourite Cornish tipples.
As well as lots of drinking, we all did lots of dancing too! Our gin festival in Falmouth kicked off with acoustic performances from the super talented singer and guitarist Ashley Harding. Mog Jones and Rue also entertained throughout the afternoon, wowing everyone with their beautiful vocals. After the laidback vibes from these singer-songwriters, we upped the tempo and got our groove on with Falmouth Soul Sensation. The dancefloor was full and everyone was in such great spirits.
