The Gin Garden will open a ‘living botanical bar’ at Chelsea Physic Garden on two evenings during the Festival. From 4pm until 8pm on 31 May and 7 June, the bar will serve signature drinks developed by ‘The Herball’ containing herbs, summer fruits, flowers, local honey and of course, gin.
During the evenings, visitors will be invited to: enjoy the tranquil calm of the Garden as they watch the sun go down and sip drinks specially created for them; learn more about the health giving properties of plants and superfoods as they walk around this walled oasis; leave with mini-packets of herb seeds and recipes for health promoting drinks they can recreate at home.
The Gin Garden’s ‘Living Botanical Bar’ promotes the garden as nature’s medicine cabinet and explores the idea that our bodies benefit from gardening to maintain optimum health.
A ‘living wall’ of herbs will surround the bar and be used to create health-promoting drinks. A herbalist will be on hand to explain how to introduce these amazing ingredients into our daily diets.
