Portloe Gin and Crack-a-Crab

Tuesday 19 June 2018

Portloe Gin and Crack-a-Crab; Sunday 8th July, 3 pm to 7 pm

The John Casson Foundation fundraising day in the beautiful village of Portloe this year is in aid of Penhaligon’s Friends.

On the afternoon of Sunday 8th July between 3 pm and 7 pm the foundation will be launching Portloe’s own limited edition gin at a Crack-a-Crab event in the garden at the village’s Ship Inn (TR2 5RA). In the event of inclement weather we will be in the pub.

The gin will be distilled on the back of a 1970’s VW in the pub car park starting around 9am ready for the afternoon, yes really!

Portloe Gin will go well with seafood and is described as smooth, citrusy, dry with a hint of spice and an aromatic nose.

If you pre-order before the 8th July it is £35 for a 75cl bottle, while on the day it will be £40 a bottle.

For pre orders you will be entered into a draw, one ticket per bottle and the winner will receive limited edition Portloe Gin bottle number 1 out of 140 as well as a photograph receiving it next to the distillery.

From 3 pm to 7 pm you can ‘Crack-a-Crab’ thanks to the generosity of Portloe’s Hannah Clark, Camel Fish Limited. On offer are crab legs, with salad and Da Bara bread. A limited food menu will be available for those who would prefer something different.

Portloe Gin is available to accompany your meal at £6.50 for a small measure including Fever Tree tonic.

The Crack-a-Crab is £12.50 if pre ordered, £15 on the day.

There will be delicious desserts at £5 each.

To make the afternoon complete we have live music from 3 pm to 7 pm courtesy of Melange who have offered to give their time to support this fundraising event in aid of Penhaligon’s Friends
