Puddingstone Distillery online gin tasting experience | Campfire Cocktails | Martini

With the postponement of gin tours and gin tasting experiences at Puddingstone Distillery itself due to the Coronavirus lock-down we’ve been running private gin tasting evenings online via Zoom and on Saturday 6 June we ran our first Campfire Cocktails online tasting.

We made 36 litres of martini cocktails using, of course, Campfire Gin and distributed 74 sets across the country. Ben delivered a one hour online history of the martini and tutored tasting which was well received by all those who joined us for the evening. In the packs delivered to each guest was three x 100ml pre-mix martinis – a Bone Dry, a Perfect and a recipe we call Fireside Manhattan. The recipes used Campfire London Dry Gin or Campfire Cask Aged Gin and Dolin Dry Vermouth and Carpano Antica Formula sweet red vermouth.

We’ve missed seeing everyone in the distillery so it was fantastic to see so many people if only virtually. With requests for more gin tasting experiences like this our next Campfire Cocktails will be on the negroni! Sign up to our newsletter for details when they are released.

Here’s a few lovely comments we received at the end of the Campfire Cocktails tasting:
‘Great, a really good format!’
‘Enjoyed it so much’
‘Brilliant way to celebrate my 30th, thank you!!’
‘Thank you very much. A great evening!’

If you’d like to have a go at making our martini recipes then check out our re-vamped cocktail section. We’ve colour coded each cocktail so you can easily see which Campfire Gin we recommend in the recipe.
