This summer Plymouth Gin and Rivington Grill in Greenwich have created the Plymouth Gin Dock, an outdoor terrace serving up cocktails. It's open daily until 18th September, and each day from 4pm - 7pm there is a 'Plymouth Hour' where gin & tonics cost just £5. Too good to miss!
"This summer, Plymouth Gin has teamed up with Rivington Greenwich to create the Plymouth Gin Dock, a nautical themed outdoor terrace. From 1 July – 18 September, guests visiting the Plymouth Gin Dock can treat themselves to a series of specially created gin cocktails, inspired by the rich maritime heritage of Greenwich.
Between 4pm-7pm each day, the ‘Pennant Flag’ will be hoisted to signify the start of the Plymouth “Hour”, with Gin and Tonics for £5. The Pennant Flag was historically used by naval ships when in harbour to signal an invitation to others to gather and enjoy gin on their ship.
Plymouth Gin is a living legend in the archives of drinks history. The world's first spirit to be called 'dry gin' when it was first developed in 1793, it is the only English gin to be granted a Protected Geographical Indication from the European Union. Loved both by the British Royal Navy and by famed explorers, Plymouth Gin sailed the seven seas and travelled from pole to pole, gaining notoriety at every port of call. The Plymouth Gin family of unique artisan spirits has stood the test of time.
Now Rivington Greenwich will be embracing this heritage by creating a series of neo-classic and daringly modern cocktails with this legendary spirit.
