Chin­nery Gin hosted a spe­cial cock­tail evening in Dublin’s The Big Ro­mance to cel­e­brate Chi­nese New Year. Guests were treated to a Chin­nery Gin tast­ing with dis­tiller David Havelin, as well as two de­li­cious cock­tails cre­ated for the oc­ca­sion, in­clud­ing one in­fused with their spe­cial va­ri­ety of Oo­long tea sourced from the mar­kets of Can­ton, China. Chin­nery Dublin Dry Gin is in­spired by the Old China Trade and the trav­els of Ge­or­gian-era artist Ge­orge Chin­nery, who started his por­trait-paint­ing ca­reer in Dublin, be­fore leav­ing and even­tu­ally set­tling in Can­ton, so the brand’s first Chi­nese New Year on sale of­fered the per­fect op­por­tu­nity to show­case their prod­uct and toast a suc­cess­ful start.
