Chin! Chin! Gin is the word at Sunderland Empire!

Get set for a gin thing this spring as Sunderland Empire raise the curtain on their very first gin event with Poetic License Distillery. A limited number of tickets have gone on sale today (Thursday 28 February) for two events on Wednesday 17 and Thursday 18 April 2019, priced at £29.50 per person.

Guests will enjoy an unforgettable gin experience in the opulent surroundings of the Dress Circle Bar area of the Grade 2 listed Sunderland Empire theatre. The evening will start with a one hour insight and tasting session taking gin enthusiasts on the ultimate Gin Journey with the team of expert distillers from local independent small batch distillery, Poetic License.

Guests will then have the opportunity to sample the full Poetic License range including four full strength gins and four liqueurs, alongside Fever Tree tonics. The price also includes a miniature food platter from the theatres in-house Garden Place Bistro.

Poetic License Distillery who are shortlisted for the Gin Magazine Awards 2019, have supplied their popular flavoured gins to the Sunderland Empire for the last year. The big, bold North East gin has been enjoyed by thousands of theatre goers and continues to be a popular bar staple.

The local Poetic License Distillery site is uniquely designed around Gracie, their 500-litre copper pot still, which produces on a small batch, artisan scale.

Adam Rowbotham, Theatre Manager at Sunderland Empire said:

“We are delighted to host our first gin event in partnership with Poetic License Distillery. The gin revolution continues to grow and I’m sure tickets will be snapped up fast! The event is also a perfect fit to utilise our stunning bar and bistro areas which are available for hire.”

A range of full sized tipples will also be available to purchase on the evening including Northern Dry Gin, Fireside Spiced Gin and Picnic Gin. The Dress Circle bar will also be open throughout the evening to purchase additional refreshments. Doors will open at 6.30pm, for a 7pm start. Here’s to the wild spirits - don’t miss the chance to experience the unforgettable flavours!
