London Chaiparty's Evening of Gin and Indian food
Thu 27 April 2017, 19:00 – 21:00 BST
London Chaiparty and Burleighs Gin join hands to present to you An Evening of Gin & Indian food.
With micro distilleries popping up all over the country, we thought it was high time someone took the plunge and paired actual Indian food with craft Gin. Our 6 course gastronomic flight would cover food from different parts of India, cooked in different styles, and those that vary a lot in terms of taste and flavour. Each course would be accompanied by a Burleighs Gin cocktail, and a tasting sample of the gin used to create that particular cocktail.
