Get your Gin Fix at Ten Green Bottles

On the occasion that I work at Hounds on a Saturday, the girls and I will head over to Ten Green Bottles to congratulate our efforts and unwind after the madness that is working in a dog shop. Days like this call for gin.

TGB gin

Ten Green Bottles was where I first tasted gin… ever. I haven’t looked back since. After staring at the menu Anya said “have a Poppy Rose, you’ll like it!” I loved it. A TGB original trademarked recipe Poppies gin paired with Fentiman’s Rose Lemonade with grapefruit and pomegranate.

The fancy little bar provides a cosy, warm welcome with super friendly staff that are more than happy to give you a run-down of the gins and bottles available.

It’s not just gin they’re serving though, but are serious about craft beer too!

On my most recent visit, I branched out of my comfort zone and opted for a Rhubarb and Custard cocktail, made from Warner Edwards Rhubarb Gin, Edinburgh Gin Rhubarb and Ginger with Lemonade and topped with Rhubarb and fresh ginger. It gives a sharp taste, with sweet, fruity aftertastes with the warmth of the ginger.

The guys get bonus points for paper straws too, because save the planet from plastic and all that.

TGB provide you with the perfect environment to explore gin and its different pairings to find your personal favourite. For me, I’m a Poppy Rose girl all the way, but love to try the new additions to the menu.

The popular venue has limited seating inside, so you have to get there around 5:30 in order to bag a table, however in the warmer months, their outdoor gin garden is a beautiful spot to sit in the sun and enjoy your tipple.

Closing at the relatively early time of 9:30 in the week and 10:30 at weekends, it makes for a fabulous start to a night out. Hopwater Cellar, Lymestone Vaults and The Thirsty Giraffe are all in close proximity, so you’re set up for a fabulous indie bar crawl.

If you fancy taking a bottle of beer home, or seriously love your gin and fancy a bottle (or ten) of the good stuff, TBG have tonnes for sale and often have gift sets available for your gin-loving friends. My personal faves are Poppies Gin at £30 or the Edinburgh Gins at the slightly cheaper £22.

    This place sounds amazing. I can’t wait for summer and gin parties in the garden in the sunshine

    Gin is my all time favourite spirit. It’s the best and I love you can get so many different varieties. I love Edinburgh gin especially the rhubarb & ginger liqueur. I’ve never tied Poppie’s before though so I’ll add it to my list.

    This looks so good! I tried my first gin on boxing day and surprisingly didn’t mind it. I still don’t prefer it over others, but the Poppy Rose does sound delish

    I absolutely love places like this, it looks amazing! I have never tried gin before, but I think I really need to give it a go! x

    Rhubarb gin is definitely something I know I’d love, I love gin and anything fruity so the combo sounds amazing. We’ve had loads of gin bars start popping up around Birmingham so perhaps I need to get myself out there and try some of my own local ones out! x

    It’s times like this that I REALLY, REALLY wish I liked gin… I just can’t get my head around the bitter aftertaste of it 🙁 Who knows, I might suck it up and try find a version of gin that I like!
