As the many of you who have joined us in years gone by will know, Ginvent isn’t just a calendar filled with 24 amazingly tasty drams of gin. It is a platform for a season of tastings, talks and events curated to immerse you into the world of Craft Gin.
This year there is more to delve into than ever before. Join us at our pop-up in Soho, at our HQ in Fulham or online each night as we explore the contents of the calendar. Here’s how…
GINVENT POP-UP: 1st & 2nd Dec
For one weekend only, Gin Foundry will be kitting out Soho’s Vinyl Factorywith trees and tinsel as we host a dedicated Gin Bar so full of Christmas kitsch you’ll want to dive into a tub of Quality Streets the second you arrive. There’ll be tinsel and candy canes and and games galore to keep you entertained as as you indulge in some superbly Christmassy vibes.
We’ve teamed up with Fever-Tree to bring you a G&T bar in which all 24 Ginvent gins will be paired up with a perfect tonic and garnish combo. The drinks will be a not-seen-in-Soho-since-the-90s bargain at £5 each! Gin makers will also be in attendance, offering up samples and giving you some insight into how and why they do what they do, and there’ll also be chances to win prizes.
There are three four hour sessions on offer:
6 O’CLOCK TASTING: 6th Dec
Whatever your post work aperitif is and however you make it, you’ll look at it in a very different way after this 60 minute masterclass! Gin O’clock is a daily ritual for the team here and with the countdown to Christmas well underway we thought it was high time to share our expertise on which cocktails best suit that end of day pour. You’ll try a G&T, a Negroni a Martini and a Sloe Gin Fizz… Grab your tickets here: sixoclockgin.eventbrite.co.uk
MARTIN MILLER’S TASTING: 14th Dec
Join us for an intimate and exclusively geeky tasting of Martin Miller’s Gin. This is the first ever time Martin Miller’s has offered a deconstructed tasting of their gin and an absolute one off of a masterclass that’ll show you the importance of flavour, ABV, distillation and water sources… A unique insight into one of the biggest names in the gin industry.

ROCK ROSE TASTING: 19th Dec
Winter, Spring, Summer and Autumn in one day may sound like… well, typical British weather, actually, but it also forms part of the lineup for this Rock Rose tasting, in which we’ll go through all of their seasonal offerings, as well as the regular and Navy strength. Whimsical, anecdotal and personal, this tasting is for those who love hearing about everything that goes into making a gin, from distilling practicalities to human endeavour.
