February Gin Pairing | MET Gin Movement

The MET Gin Movement | Pairing of the Month

It’s not a perfect evening without the perfect G&T, but at The MET, we know that the pairing can make the gin experience.

Take our monthly recommendation on the perfect gin garnish pairings to enjoy at home, or in our bar and restaurant.

Gin of the Month:

Drumshanbo Gunpowder Irish Gin

The philosophy behind Drumshanbo Gunpowder Irish Gin is – A Curious Mind. The team believe that originality isn’t just about innovation and we couldn’t agree more. As we closed the book on 2020 and ventured into 2021 with new hopes and fresh beginnings this philosophy rings more true than ever! – It’s about bringing together unrelated things for the first time. Seeing the possibilities that others don’t. That takes a willingness to set aside the tried and tested solutions and venture into uncharted territory.

It’s the mark of a truly curious mind.

And now more than ever, we need to be brave and be curious in the face of uncharted territory. That’s why this month – we want to inspire you to incorporate passion, heat, creativity and nerve into everything you do, from love to work and beyond. Set your intentions for 2021 people, and buckle up. The  Drumshanbo Gunpowder gin take the best of Oriental Botanicals, fuses with Gunpowder Tea and adds a dash of Irish curiosity. Now if that’s not worth trying, we don’t know what is!

Garnish of the Month:

Burnt Red Chilli and Lime Zest

To set you aflame with passion, creativity and curiosity, your first act of bravery this February will be to try our rather unique garnish, guaranteed to add some heat and energy to your night out (or date if it’s Valentine’s!). After that, we’ll leave the creativity up to you, who knows where the night may lead…
