GIN lovers will have the opportunity to enjoy a “superb selection” of gins from the UK and overseas at an 11-day festival dedicated to the tipple.

The John Russell Fox, in High Street, will be serving gins from Japan, Portugal, Spain, Germany and Italy, as well as blends produced in the UK.

Among the selection there will be a variety of award-winning gins as well as a choice of flavoured gins.

Pub manager, Barry Price, said: "The majority of gins in the festival have not been available in the pub beforehand and I am looking forward to serving them.

"The festival promises to be great fun and I am certain that our customers will enjoy trying the superb range of gins that we have on offer."

The festival will run from Friday, August 17 to Monday, August 27.

Tasting notes on all of the gins will be available in the pub.
