Gin Tasting Night

On Saturday 5th October we ran our first gin tasting night. Organised and hosted by Grail Distillery, Saddleworth over 30 people enjoyed the superb collection of gins created by this relatively new distillery.

Alex, Master Distiller

Ably assisted by the charismatic Paul Gibson, account manager at Grail, who acted as the MC for the night, master distiller Alex introduced each gin and explained the processes and flavourings involved in their production. The tastings ended with a beautifully creamy gin liqueur with a hint of a ‘Baileys’ going on.

The club is definitely considering holding another tasting night in the new year, purely based on the very positive feedback received for this fantastic evening

Paul and Alex deciding on the next gin to taste
The creme de la creme!

Refurbishment Update – still time to donate

If you’ve been into the club recently you will no doubt have seen the new carpet in the bar area. Our membership has been really generous in donating towards the funding of our improvements. We set a target of £3000 to enable all improvements to be made and we have raised nearly 2/3 of that amount already. Massive thanks to all those members who have so generously given. You can still donate by going to our Donations page and paying online or over the bar to Steve, our steward.

Target is £3000

Reduced rate subscription

New visitors to this site and the club might like to know that we currently have a special offer on our annual subscription rate. New members pay only £10, half the usual rate, which gives full access to the club until subscriptions are renewed at the end of October.
