Saturday 10th September – An Evening of Gin

Join us for an utterly delicious evening inspired by that most iconic and atmospheric of spirits: London Dry Gin, the drink that put the ROAR into the 1920’s!
Guests to this dazzling evening of fun, frolic and fizz will be greeted with a Gin Fizz Cocktail on arrival in the Great Hall before a Gin expert guides them on an effervescent, tongue tingling tasting trip through a wonderful array of the world’s finest gins in Lissan’s spectacular Ballroom followed by the opportunity to enjoy a cool drink in the vetiver-green decadence of the Lissan gardens or dance the night away to the sounds of 1920’s jazz in the ballroom.
Tickets, which cost £25 per person, include the cocktail on arrival, a selection of delectable nibbles and treats and all tasting gins, with supplementary tipples available for a £5 donation to the Lissan House Trust.
Tickets are available from Lissan on 028 867 63312.
So go on: gentlemen, don those high hats, arrowed collars and white spats and ladies, grab that Prince and and spark an abdication!
