Like your gin by the shedload? Get down to Gin Shed this weekend

Gin Shed
In case you’ve not noticed, gin is sort of a big deal in London at the moment. What used to serve almost exclusively as a forfeit in student drinking games has, in recent years, been thrust to the forefront of the booze zeitgeist, with swish speakeasy-style establishments shifting the stuff by the jam jarful.

The latest development in the spirit’s resurgence is Gin Shed – a weekly cocktail club popping up at Skyroom on Tooley Street on Saturday nights throughout the summer. As well as an arsenal of creative gin-based tipples (featuring the likes of nettle syrup, rhubarb shrub and cardamom bitters, all priced £7-£9), there’s also a regularly rotating food offering – head down tomorrow for grub from The Foragers, who, as the name suggests, source their ingredients from the countryside. Mind you, with a menu that includes sloe gin-cured trout, venison burgers and chocolate brownies, they’re presumably getting a little bit of help from their local farmer’s market.

Gin Shed is at Skyroom, 5th Floor, Magdalen House, 148 Tooley Street, SE1 2TU every Saturday night throughout the summer. For more information, follow @ginshed.
