Ok so I might have mentioned once or possibly twice that I love gin, I mean I really LOVE gin. It’s my tipple of choice at any occasion and my cupboard at home proudly displays more than just boring Gordon’s.
So when I got wind that Gingerline, creators of experiential food and drink events were partnering with Sipsmiths Gin to create Juniper Manor, I knew I needed tickets. Mr B doesn’t get as excited about gin as I do so I disguised the tickets as our 1st wedding anniversary present – sneaky I know!
Now, I’ve been bound by the Order of the Cygnet so I can’t actually tell you what happens in Juniper Manor beyond Heironymous Clock but I can tell you about the fabulous experience in the bar.
I’ve never been to a Gingerline event before but it is very cloak and dagger in the sense that I got a text at 4pm of the day we were booked with a list of directions of how to get to Juniper Manor. You might have guessed but the events are held somewhere along the East London line, hence the name Gingerline. Again I can’t tell you the location but off we trotted into an area of London we haven’t actually been to before.
On arrival to Juniper Manor we were taken into the bar which was decorated like a 1950’s old style manor with huge chandeliers and fountains. Everything looked stunning and it really did transport you back through time.
The whole experience was around 2hours long and during that time we were given four different courses each accompanied by Sipsmiths gin along the way. What we really loved is how in character all the staff were.
I’ve been told since its launch on World Gin Day there have been over 11,000 people through the Juniper Manor doors and due to its popularity its run has been extended. So fear not if you missed out on tickets a whole new batch will be on sale on the 5th September from midday. I really urge you to get you mitts on some tickets and go, it’s so fabulous.
