Our Gin Festival Launch Dinner July 18th

We have teamed up with Cardiff Gin Club to create a 5-course taster menu, pairing rare and adventurous gins with our fresh twists on traditional Indian cuisine.

Chef Anand has been working with Llio and Nicky of Cardiff Gin Club to develop an Indian Food and Gin Pairing Menu

Entitled ‘Spirit’ the Purple Poppadom Gin Festival has been designed by Chef Anand George to explore how gins from craft distillers can be matched with Indian cuisine. 

These rare and adventurous gins have been expertly curated by Cardiff Gin Club.

On Wednesday 18th July we will be hosting a three-course gin and curry tasting event presented by Cardiff Gin Club and Anand George, which will start at 7pm (sold out) and with a second sitting of 8pm.  

Enjoy a three-course dinner with matching gins for 35.00 per person (plus £2.27 booking fee via Eventbrite)
