Description

Welcome to The Nether Abbey Hotel & Bar Gin Festival - 'On The Coast' in North Berwick.

After 25 Years of successfully running our popular Beer Festival in a marquee on the hotel patio, this year we are also transforming the Upper Restaurant and Music Room into a Gin Festival.

We are conveniently situated on Dirleton Avenue in beautiful North Berwick. We are a short walk from a vibrant High Street, 5 minutes' walk from North Berwick train station - & we are immediately opposite the bus stop. See Public Transport travel options below.

The Event

Your Gin Festival Ticket price includes entry to The 'Gin Hall with Perfect Serve Bar' and 'Meet The Maker' Room, your large Gin Goblet to take away, a 'Welcome!' Gin Sampler Sponsored by Edinburgh Gin, Event Programme and a complimentary Gin and Tonic token.

We have transformed our beautiful music room into a 'Theatre of Gin' where you can 'Meet The Makers' - The Scottish Gin Distillers who will be articulating their craft and story, sampling their gins, talking garnishes, and advising on their own perfect serves! The bay window will feature Pickerings Gin with their Christmas themes, alongside Edinburgh Distillers, Pentland Hills Gin (with Panza the Dog), The Old Poison Distillery, Fidra Gin, Eden Mill, and Lone Wolf Gin. Edinburgh Gin are sponsoring, and will be sampled in, The Perfect Serve Bar - including their festive launch - Lemon and Jasmin Gin. Further updates to follow ! (as of 27 Sept).

Additional Gin and Mixer tokens are available for £5 - see below.

It's perfect timing to browse some unique Gin Ideas for Christmas, as the Distillers will all be offering their seasonal & Christmas variants for purchase. (cards accepted).

The event is the official launch of Elder Vesuvius by The Old Poison Distillery.

Meet Cushidoos Scottish Tonic made with mountain spring water and a blend of Scottish botanicals.

Meet the Gin Expert - the Journalist and Doyenne of Scottish Gin - Fiona Laing - will be on hand to discuss her beautiful little Scottish Gin handbook called 'The Gin Clan' - the perfect signed stocking filler to delight any gin enthusiast!
