Free gin and tonics are being given away this weekend at the The George on Borough High Street – but only if you bring along a stick of rhubarb.
The Greene King Pub says the giveaway is in celebration of rising demand for different flavours of the spirit, and to get your free glass of Whitley Neill rhubbard and ginger gin and tonic, all you need to do is turn up brandishing a stick of rhubarb – or the tinned variety.
Thomas Flynn, general manager at the George, said there will be one drink offered per person until their supply runs out.
He told the News: “Everyone loves a gin and tonic on a British summer day, and there’s no denying a chilled glass that you haven’t had to pay for tastes even better.
“Rhubarb and ginger is the perfect flavour combination – the tartness of the rhubarb is complemented by the depth and spice of the ginger – and when combined with the botanicals within the gin, it makes for the perfect refresher to enjoy in the warm weather.
“We look forward to inviting local gin lovers to enjoy a taste of rhubarb goodness on the house this weekend.”
