With the rain pouring down (at the beginning of June no less), we made our way to the secluded plaza where Mrs Fogg's Maritime Club and Distillery can be found. As we awaited our guests, we got ready to take some of our favourite clients on a journey of gin discovery...and gin drinking
When we were choosing where to go for our inaugural client event, the first place that sprang to mind was the inimitable Mrs Fogg's Maritime Club & Distillery. Full of character and charm, with some heritage from The Mr Fogg's collection (another site which you might have seen if you frequent the Virgin Experience Days YouTube channel), it was the perfect place to try something new and treat our clients at the same time.
With an excellent elderflower (and gin) cocktail in hand, we were handed our boarding passes for the Engine Room, our exclusive venue for the next few hours. Boiler-suited and aproned-up, Cary and Jack took us through the tale of gin and its origins, as well as giving us a good look at the 'bloody big kettle' where the distilling magic happens. After a few glasses of jenever and gin, we were onto sniffing pure botanicals (some sweeter than others!) and making our own spirit mixes to take home. Though everyone might have been a sheet or two to the wind by the end, we'll definitely be treating more of our fabulous clients to more events in the future!
