This August sees the inagural Rutland Arms Gin festival, a celebration of all things Gin. We have tasting sessions lined up to showcase the intricacies of the Junper flavoured spirit, matching G&T to our small plates and a Gin themed feast on the cards.
We'll be getting in the spirit (no pun intended) of things with a Prohibition themed gin soaked speakeasy, while our food menu will be featuring ginspired specials all week and we'll proudly be serving over 50 gins, with recommended tonic and garnish pairings.
Tuesday 7:30: Ginerous Gin Tasting. 5 of our favourite festival gins selected to showcase the range of styles on offer in the modern gin world, served to best reflect the gin. £20 a person, can be matched with our Ginspired Small Plates for £10 for 3 dishes to accompany your drinks. Our ginuinely knowledgeable ginthusiasts will be on hand to offer both gineral knowledge gin facts and some specific ones about what you're tasting too. And more gin puns. Definitely more gin puns.
Thursday: Rutty Cocktail Club: We bring out our inner Tom Cruise, minus the Scientology and, shaker in hand, will be purveying to you the finest gin based concoctions we can create. More Martinis than Bond, Negroni? No problomi. Tom Collins? We've got his number. Or something. Offers on our creations all evening.
Friday & Saturday: Don't tell anyone you don't trust, but there's a party going on upstairs at the Rutland and you're invited to hide out from Eliot Ness and Co for the evening. There will be Gin. There will be cocktails (as we'll have perfected our methods the night before) and there will be Jazz. Nice.
Sunday: The Rutland Supper Club. Join us for our first Sunday evening banquet in our newly refurbished upstairs room, where for the inaugural edition we are offering 5 courses inspired by our Gin Festival, all cooked using gin and inspired by the flavours found within. £30 each, with a specially taloured gin package offered so you can match the gins which inspired the dish with each course. Please ask at the bar or send us a message if you want to book.
