We will be launching Smeaton’s Gin on 27th Oct (Thurs) at 7pm in Singapore. Michael Palij, Master of Wine (MW), who is the founder of this gin, will guide us through the evening. It will be a good party! :)
Date: 27th Oct (Thurs)
Time: 7pm for 7.30pm start
Venue: Gibson Cocktail Bar (20 Bukit Pasoh, 2nd floor)
Cost: Only $125 nett (partial sponsorship by Wein & Vin, the importer of Smeaton's Gin)
We will be serving 5 cocktails based on Smeaton’s Gin:
1. Gin & Tonic as apertif
2. Dry Martini featuring Scarpa unfiltered Vermouth di Torino DOP
'I blended the world's first unfiltered Vermouth di Torino DOP, made for us exclusively by Antica Casa Vinicola Scarpa. The very low residual sugar (<30g/l) and the use of fresh botanicals and ambient extraction make this the ideal combination for Smeaton's Gin in a dry martini where a mix of 50/50 still tastes refreshingly dry'. Michael Palij MW
4. Special Smeaton's Gin cocktail by Gibson!
5. Another Smeaton's Gin cocktail of your choice from above!
Salmon Gravlax Tart
Steak Tartare Toast
Fried Hake Sliders
Burrata & Prosciutto Toast
Grilled Mushroom Skewers

When Michael Palij MW uncovered records for a method of producing 'Bristol' gin, he made the switch from wine to gin! The documents, dating from 1870, were hidden away in the Bristol City Archives, describing a specific method of production. As a vital English port, spices and botanicals would arrive in Bristol throughout the year; to preserve their freshness these were distilled individually and then later blended together. Michael will take you through his journey to reviving the Bristol method and the exemplary result of purity, complexity, balance and flavour in Smeaton’s Gin.
Smeaton's Gin is available at a special launch price of SGD 99 nett per bottle (70cl, 45% abv). RRP: $120! Valid only till 31st October 2022!
