THE TEAM at Five Valleys in Stroud are celebrating the nation’s favourite tipple this weekend in a special event organised to mark World Gin Day.

On Saturday, an array of specialist gins will be showcased in the centre’s market area.

Shoppers will be invited to try tasters of different varieties from Armadeli and Phoenix Wines, as well as purchasing drinks to take home or to enjoy in the market’s seating area or in Armadeli.

The event will run throughout the day on Saturday and is supported by two specialist gin traders who will be on hand to share their knowledge with shoppers.

Centre manager at Five Valleys Dionne Moore, said: “It really is great to be able to organise our Five Valleys events and special promotions once again and we’re really looking forward to Saturday’s gin event which we’re sure will be popular with our shoppers.

“We’ve got some great specialist gins and two fantastic traders who really know their gin, so please do come and visit us in the market area.”

The World Gin Day event runs from 10.30am – 3.30pm on Saturday.
