Whilst these top 5 lists are not in any particular order, these places to sip on a crisp Gin are some firm favourites of Foozie and we think them deserving of a shout out! If you are looking for inspiration for your next night on the Mother’s Ruin then have a scroll…
The Pump House
Address: Merchants Road, Hotwells BS8
Probably the most well known venue in which you can get a great G&T is The Pump House. With a collection of over 400 different Gins to try and bottles being added all of the time, this is the perfect spot to while away sunny summer days with a crisp drink in hand.
Address: 16 West Street, Bristol BS2
Contemporary bar and kitchen Dutch is a casual and relaxed space to met with friends and put the world to rights over a few Gins. The Gin menu is extensive and Dutch also offer Gin cocktails and their own creative twists for garnishing their beverages.
Address: St. Michael’s Hill, Bristol
To be surrounded by everything Gin, then Bristol’s Psychopomp microdistillery and bar is the absolute must place to visit. Marvel at the gorgeous copper stills that have created the very Gi that’s sitting in your Negroni and even take a stab at making your own Gin. It would be rude not to purchase a Psychopomp bottle too, for when you get home and fancy another.
The Milk thistle
Address: Quay Head House, Bristol BS1
Whilst The milk Thistle are not known for Gin specifically, they do often run bi-monthly Gin clubs where a specialist producer will come to talk about a particular Gin and what is best to drink with it. These Gin clubs often come with cocktail tasters too which are the deal clincher. Keep an eye out for more events like these to come from The Milk Thistle.
6 o’ Clock Gin Distillery
Whist a visit to 6 o’ Clock Gin does mean travelling out to Thornbury; it is worth a special trip. The impressive distillery is a beautiful site to behold and is also a lovely idea for those wanting to do something different for a day with friends to get out or for a special occasion. You can hold events out at the space and also book in for Gin tastings.
