Gin-lovers of the world rejoice as Taste and Liquor is hosting its first Gin and Meat Festival on Saturday (March 25). It is a chance for gin beginners to become better acquainted with the spirit in a laid-back environment, while offering carnivores the opportunity to discover something new.
Inspired by Julia Child who said: “Red meat and gin…” were one of the reasons for her longevity, gin-fuelled shenanigans will take place from mid-morning, till late evening at No21 Digbeth, complemented by a global street-feast dishing up the best meaty dishes!
They come from all corners of the globe, dressed in different colours and infused with flavours from flowery to fiery and in every manner of mixer and you have a thrill-fest for your tastebuds – Gin is most definitely in! So what’s in store for this wonderful gathering of taste sensation?
