As big gin fans here at The Handbook, we have to admit that Quaglino’s new ‘Giovanni Gin Garden’ installation really couldn’t be more appealing but unlike our casual Friday night post-work excuse G&T, Quaglino’s is going that one step further (well several steps).
Aptly named after the original owner, Giovanni Quaglino, this hidden Mayfair gem has been transformed into a garden perfect for summer. Forget your run-of-the-mill fag ash filled, beer scented gardens, The Giovanni Gin Garden provides an opulent experience that cannot compare. Expect pergolas wrapped in emerald vines, glowing lanterns and lilac wisteria silk hanging around your shoulders. Imagine the scent infusions of jasmine, honeysuckle and passionflower, an installation to tingle all senses.
Tanqueray No.10, one of our favourite gins is distilled with the finest citrus-infused botanicals, has offered their spirits, in both senses. Not only will they be offering 3 new cocktails, one involving a gin twist on a classic Mojito which would go down very well here at The Handbook, but guests will be invited to try their best at making their very own cocktails in a masterclass led by expert bartenders, we’ll see you there!
Open July – August
