Lough Ree Distillery launches ‘Love Edition’ of ‘Gin School At Home’ kit!

Lough Ree Distillery in Lanesborough, Co. Longford has come up with a unique option for couples looking to celebrate the forthcoming St. Valentine’s weekend under lockdown.

Mike Clancy, at Lough Ree Distillery, home of Sling Shot Distilled Irish Gin, said the team wanted to create a distinctive and fun option for couples to celebrate Valentine’s in the safety of their home, so they have created the ‘Love Edition’ of their top-selling ‘Sling Shot Gin School at Home’ kit. This allows couples to experiment with different botanical distillates and create their own special gin.

Speaking from the distillery in Lanesborough, Mike said: “Normally couples would be gearing up for a night out with a romantic meal followed by some drinks, but this year, people are looking for alternatives that still create a sense of experience and occasion.

“We’d invite couples to get into the spirit and use the specially distilled botanical spirits to create their very own bespoke gin. The distillates for you to work with are Rosebuds, Cacao Nibs, Pink Grapefruit, Pink Peppercorns, Thyme and Mint, so there’s something for to satisfy every taste”.

It also includes two miniatures each of Lough Ree’s own multi award-winning ‘Sling Shot’ and ‘Aiteal Distilled’ Irish gins, some hand-made ‘Sling Shot Gin Truffles’ created by Kilbeggan Chocolates, a pair of crystal tumbler glasses and even a specially curated playlist of songs to set the scene for your perfect night in.

The kit comes complete with full instructions and everything needed to create enough for fourteen G&Ts – all you need to provide is tonic, ice, garnishes and enthusiasm!

This experience costs €80 per couple and can be shipped anywhere in Ireland.
