We are very excited to announce our very first Hooting Gin & Food Pairing Experience at Guest Dining.  We have teamed up with the Hooting Owl Distillery, a Yorkshire artisan distiller of craft gin based in the historic Barmby Moor House on the main trunk road between York and Hull.

Hooting Owl will be introducing each of their 5 Yorkshire gins which will be paired with a show-stopping menu of 5 small plates prepared by our very own Guest Dining chefs designed to complement the flavour, notes and botanicals of each gin.

Hooting Owl will also give a talk on the history of gin, the different types, how the recent explosion of gin has come about, botanicals and their roles in their gins along with sampling and detailed tasting notes for each of our gin courses.  You will also be given the opportunity to buy bottles of Hooting Owl gin at the end of the event.

The price of the evening is £40 which includes 5 x 20ml gin & tonic servings and 5 small plates.
