Warner's Lemon Balm Gin Launch
BOOM! Our Botanical Garden has finally come to life. Months of blood, sweat and tears have paid off as our distillery played host to the launch of our Botanical Garden and Limited Edition Lemon Balm Gin!
As would be expected at any kind of party hosted by us, there were plenty of G&T’s to be had, however we started the night with the star of the show, our beloved new Lemon Balm Gin, served as a ‘Lemon Balm Collins’ cocktail created especially for us by head bartender at Sager + Wilde Restaurant,
Stephen Pennack. A mixture of Benedictine, lemon juice, bee pollen syrup and of course our very own Lemon Balm Gin, topped with soda water, proved that there’s more to gin than just mixing it with tonic for the less traditionalist of you out there (although it is still epic with tonic…)!
Our guests were immersed in our fabulous Warner's world as we hosted a cocktail masterclass in our brand new ‘Tack Room Bar’ before jumping on board the tractor trailer to take a tour of the terraced fields and see the abundance of natural springs our farm has to offer.
Alistair Peak, our acclaimed garden designer then joined me to get our horticultural hats on to unveil our blooming beautiful botanical garden! Inspired by my very own mother, Adèle, who was a keen gardener herself, it gave me huge pride to share with all our fantastic guests our amazing transformation. Craft is and always will be at the very heart of our business. Innovation and authentic flavour creation is our passion and the introduction of our botanical garden has given us so much potential to expand our flavours and even more to share with our fans and on our increasingly popular ‘Curiosity Tour’!
The rest of the evening played host to Rhys our singer and guitarist, whilst our good friend and Chef Joe Buckley from our local pub, the Tollemache Arms, provided us with food fit for a king! Joe’s menu took inspiration and even ingredients from our botanical garden, my personal favourite…. the rhubarb and custard donuts!
In the words of The Four Seasons ‘Oh What A Night!’ Our Warner's troops have turned their hand to all sorts of trades, we’ve been gardeners, carpenters, decorators, builders and everything else in between! All the hard work has paid off as W.E. welcome our new Botanical Garden range and the first botanical beauty, our Limited Edition Lemon Balm Gin.
A massive thank you to everyone who came to celebrate with us.
United in Spirit!
