An artisan gin distillery on the Isle of Mull is inviting fans to enjoy an online gin tasting on Friday 3 April, sharing a glimpse of its island home with viewers in their own homes.

Tobermory Gin will welcome their master distiller and master blender to compere a tasting of the spirit, which is inspired by the charming Hebridean Island famed for a colourful array of buildings in the main town of Tobermory.

What can viewers expect?

Viewers of the Tobermory Gin Facebook tasting, which was set to be part last weekend’s Gin Live event, will be given an expert tasting lesson, an expressive overview of the distillery’s history, the production processes behind the spirit and it’s colourful and eye-catching packaging, all inspired by the island’s vibrant harbour and diverse landscape.

Any bottles purchased via Tobermory’s website using the GIN10 code will be eligible for 10 per cent discount until Sunday, while Distell will continue donating a further 10 per cent to The BEN – a charity which supports hospitality workers.

How to join

To participate or submit a question in advance visit their Facebook page – and questions shared ahead of 8.30pm broadcast will automatically be entered into a draw to win a bottle of Tobermory Gin accompanied by a set of glasses.
