PAST EVENT - AMOC Virtual Gin Tasting Evening with Piston Gin
AMOC members were invited to take part in a virtual gin tasting evening on Thursday 2nd December, hosted by Piston Gin Distillery Manager – Grace Stringer and HQ’s Joanne Green.
Piston Distillery was founded in 2018 at the Old Worcester Porcelain works on the banks of the River Severn. This world famous canal network was once responsible for bringing exotic spices from all over the world to the Midlands.
The session was over a few hours and involved an exclusive virtual tour around the award winning Piston Gin distillery, learning about the history and heritage of gin, discovering the origin and uses of it back in the early 1600’s, as well as its development throughout the years - up to its recent resurgence today.
Members mixed (and sampled!) cocktails using the 3x 20cl mixed bottles of beautifully presented Piston Gin and accompanying ‘Fever Tree’ tonic waters and dried garnishes.
