The Cotswold Gin Pantry and Bar

The Cotswold Gin Pantry was created in 2011 by the owners of The Cotswold Plough, from their extensive knowledge of Jenevers and Gins from around the world.

A destination for gin-enthusiasts, the Gin Pantry houses a famous collection of hundreds of gins from across the globe, for all to see, smell, sample and explore.

With an infinite amount of knowledge, coupled with years of sharing his passion for the beautiful juniper berry, Martin Agius (locally known as the Gin Man) began a quest to find his ultimate gin and commenced blending his own collection to share.

And so, his own brand Gin In A Tin in 2016 was born!

Today this, bespoke collection of gins of distinction, in tins, are brought straight to your door by subscription, either, Monthly, Bi-monthly or Quarterly. All blends can be bought online at www.gininatin.co.uk and samples of each can be tasted inside The Cotswold Gin Pantry.

GIN LIST

As you can imagine the combinations available with so many different Tonics on offer are endless. To name but a few we have Fentermans, 6'oclock, Fever-Tree,1724, BTW and Peter Spanton No 1 tonics in house. We often get asked ‘Should one put it with lemon, lime, mint or even lavender? Just talk to the Gin Connoisseurs about what you like and let them recommend, as bitters and garnishes are a very important part of making a tasty but interesting G&T.

THE GIN PANTRY CLUB

We have a vast selection of bitters so why not experiment with us and try something new each time by joining The Gin Pantry Club.
