A gin tasting event is coming to Preston.


Taking place in the Vaults at PLAU in Friargate, the event will be hosted by Black Powder Gin from nearby Weeton.

The evening will cover a brief history of gin, plus take a journey through the gin revolution with some of the more exotic flavours now available. Canapés will be served.

A spokesperson for PLAU said: “There aren’t many gin tasting sessions in Preston, and it’s certainly the first that we’ve done at PLAU.

“It’s quite special that it’s happening in Preston’s original Dram Shop, where the working class would’ve staggered to beneath the streets of Preston, to get their fill during the gin craze of the 18th Century.”

The Black Powder Gin Tasting Event takes place on Thursday 9 January from 7pm. Tickets are priced at £22.50 and are available from the PLAU online shop.
