Girls Day Out (aka Gin Queens on Tour)


Yesterday I went to Edinburgh with 3 of my colleagues to do an Edinburgh Gin Distillery tour.  It was a riot from start (Prosecco on the train!) to finish (coffee and chips in Wetherspoons!!)


It cost £25 for a 75 mins talk and tour about the history of gin, tasting the botanicals used, inspecting the stills and finally tasting the many types of gin and gin liqueurs they make.  It was great fun.  The tour included a miniature of their classic gin and I bought the Seaside Gin and a tour exclusive orange blossom and mandarin liqueur.
 

Then we went to Tigerlily for lunch and cocktails.  We all had a veggie yellow curry.  It was delicious!


We had the Disco Ball cocktail for sharing! 🍸

After that we went to a speakeasy for a few more cocktails  then decided that coffee and chips were in order before heading back on the train.  It was a lovely day out for 4 ladies of a certain age.  We've decided to do it more regularly!! 😮😆

    1. Lol! Head was fine as I stuck to gin based cocktails (no mixing my alcohols), drank loads of water throughout the day and stopped drinking alcohol earlier than the others. However, my digestion system protested loudly the next day!!!
