Gin

Melton Mowbray in Leicestershire hosted the first-ever 'Distilled' event from 16-17 June 2018, dedicated to promoting local and regional producers of alcoholic spirits and other food and drink.

Exhibitors included Burleighs Gin, Two Birds Spirits and Old Vodka, and will be showcasing a range of alcoholic spirits including vodka, gin and whisky, as well as other local produce such as alcoholic chocolates and coffees.

Two Birds Spirits from Market Harborough ran a series of gin distilling workshops where visitors learnt how gin is made and see the distillation process for themselves.

Sorry, no dogs are allowed at this event, except guide dogs.

 

Matthew O’Callaghan from the Melton Mowbray Food Partnership and organiser of 'Distilled' festival said: “After the popular Artisan Cheese Fair in May, we’re now bringing the first-ever celebration of all things distilled to the magnificent setting of St Marys Church, with its newly renovated interior.

There are some truly incredible local and regional producers of alcoholic spirits and the first-ever 'Distilled' will enable us to welcome visitors to sample, buy and generally celebrate the fantastic tastes available in Leicestershire and the wider East Midlands.”
