Taste the world’s first Pinot Grigio Gin at new Italian gin garden
The Culloden Estate and Spa is bringing a taste of Italy to Northern Ireland this summer with the launch of its new outdoor experience, Gin and Gelato.
The five-star Belfast hotel has teamed up with Drinksology to create an Italian gin garden – a bespoke timber bar installation with outdoor seating in the stunning 12-acre estate.
Guests can reserve a table to enjoy the world’s first Pinot Grigio gin, Ginato Gin, distilled with the finest Italian Pinot Grigio grapes selected from the wine-growing regions of Friuli in the north of the country.
The citrusy tipple also boasts Sicilian lemons and Tuscan juniper berries to capture the true essence of Italy.
Putting a local twist on the Italian theme, a selection of gelato is available from Glastry Farm on the Ards Peninsula.
Ice cream floats, wine, champagne and draft beer are on offer as well as Italian-inspired food and sharing boards, with a new menu launched for each month of the summer.
Niall Burns, General Manager of the Culloden Estate & Spa said: “We are delighted to bring a taste of Italy to the Culloden with Gin and Gelato.
“Guests can sit back and relax in luxurious surroundings whilst enjoying a magnificent selection of drinks and delicious Italian-themed menus using the very best of local produce.”
Gin and Gelato is running throughout June, July and August. It costs from €162.50pps and includes luxurious overnight accommodation, breakfast, a reserved table at the Italian gin garden and a complimentary Gin or Gelato.
