While the image of countryside strawberry picking, birds tweeting and the smell of freshly cut grass doesn’t exactly bring the bustle of central London to mind, the city is indeed going back to nature as BLOOM London Dry Gin launches its second Pick Your Own Strawberries pop-up in Covent Garden. Running from 11th – 13th June, special strawberry patches will be open for harvesting with bartenders serving up BLOOM strawberry G & Ts for hard-working fruit-pickers.
Just ahead of World Gin Day on 15th June, BLOOM’s strawberry pop-up will celebrate the British public’s long-held affinity with its most delicious summertime treats – gin and strawberries. As the summer season comes late this year, strawberries promise to be extra sweet and juicy, the perfect fruity fuel to for this summertime extravaganza.
So, for a rural-repast in the mid-city, BLOOM's Pick Your Own Strawberries pop-up is certainly a date for the diary. As delicious strawberries meet great gin, the garden’s back in Covent Garden.
