Every Wednesday to Sunday from 4pm it is Gin O’Clock time at Fairlawns Boutique Hotel & Spa! Yet another special treat they have stirred and shaken up for their patrons where a professional Gin-Genius creates some magical infusions!
Fairlawns Boutique Hotel & Spa, an award-winning five-star boutique hotel, is like a French Chateau peeping through the woods and conveniently situated in the Sandton suburb of Morningside Manor, Sandton. Each week a selection of gins are selected from the wide range of local and international brands, with the exception of Monkey47, which is a favourite staple. There are hundreds of beautiful crafted gins, each with a signature taste infusion and interesting story and journey.
The making of gin cocktails is an art form with room for experimentation and creativity utilising the infused botanicals, primarily Juniper Berry and coaxing them out to intoxicate your senses.
The Fairlawns in-house creative Gin-Genius is passionate about his craft and specialises in Gin-based creations. He’ll ask you for your personal tastes and create a delicious cocktail just for you. You can choose your ingredients from a selection of fruits and herbs, and combine them with a choice of four gins and variety of tonics. This ‘Gin Genie’ of the bottle has a knack for finding the right balance between sweet and bitter. Mint is a key ingredient to cut through the alcohol and brings together scent and taste in one sensation. Rosemary can also be used to delicately balance on the surface of the drink.
Gin is a versatile base for many creative cocktails and one can even try a shake with Elderflower tonic. The end result of each drink is as visually enticing as it is tasty on the tongue and fragrant on the nose.
At Gin O’Clock, all you have to do is sit back and relax on the peaceful terrace at Fairlawns and enjoy the sights and sounds of the luscious garden environment. It is a refreshing end to any day with every sense engaged.
PS – an insider secret, after 6pm – the gin bar moves to the Muse Champagne Room, where the sunset is the backdrop and the experimental elixirs continue!
A must for Gin Lovers!
