We are delighted to announce that Worthing Gin will once again be our headline sponsor for the 2021 Better Business Show. What more of a local success story could you ask for!
Worthing Gin is a traditional distilled Sussex Dry Gin which gives Worthing Gin its unique smooth flavour and is the latest exciting journey of Phil Duckett and his wife Alison. After a long hot day in 2018 Phil was relaxing on Worthing Pier having a well-deserved drink whilst overlooking the Worthing Med. “it’s times like this that the mind wanders and sends you in all directions. It was one of those moments and some would say the Gin crossroads!”After several meetings and discussions with Tom a friend and distiller Worthing Gin was created.
What we wanted was an original recipe with a classic taste that rolls in the mouth as well as an aroma that leaves you wanting more. We played around with the base botanicals Juniper Berries, Coriander seeds, Angelica Root, Sweet Orange peel and a twist of Rosemary and started blending these flavours late into the night. The results of this hard work and several sleepless nights is hopefully that you’re either reading this with a glass of Worthing Gin in your hand or you are going to the Shopping tab on the website and ordering a bottle soon to try..
From April to September you may have noticed our Worthing Gin ‘Gin Ginie’ French HY Van on Worthing seafront promenade opposite the Travelodge serving G & T’s for you to enjoy whilst looking out to the sea. We hope to see you there soon. Our second Worthing Gin ‘Gin Gino’ HY van is busy on hire at weddings and social or corporate events.
Visit our Worthing Gin shop where you can purchase a bottle or two for gifts or to try at home this is located in the Guildbourne Centre. Check the website for opening times and the latest Worthing Gin news. www.worthinggin.co.uk
