Chef & Brewer Hunting For A ‘Gin-Ius’

Chef & Brewer is searching for a gin expert to become its first ever ‘Gin-ius’ who will design a new gin cocktail to be added to the pub chain’s menu later this year.

The popular country pub chain is looking for aspiring drink experts to come up with a new gin creation, with the winner bagging themselves a year’s supply of gin, a £500 cash prize and the title of the first official ‘Gin-ius’.

The chosen candidate will have to know their Gordon’s from their Hendricks to be in with a chance of winning the dream role, as well as demonstrating a passion for the nation’s favourite spirit.

Carol Rhead, brand controller for Chef & Brewer, said: “Gin is undergoing a huge revival and many of us would agree that a G&T is our tipple of choice. But while we might think we’re a gin expert, how many of us can actually claim to be a fully-fledged ‘Gin-ius’?

“We’re putting this to the test by challenging our guests to share what makes them the ultimate ‘Gin-ius’. Whether you prefer a slice of lime, a dash of cordial or a splash of fruit liqueur, tell us why you think you deserve to be our resident gin advisor and you could bag yourself the ultimate gin-lover’s prize – as well as the title of Chef & Brewer’s first official ‘Gin-ius’.

To be in with a chance of winning the accolade, guests simply need to visit and explain why they think they could be the  first ‘Gin-ius’ before Monday 7 August 2017.

The chosen winner will need to be available week commencing Monday 28 August to create the premium gin cocktail.

The search for the first ever ‘Gin-ius’ is taking place to launch Chef & Brewer’s Summer Festival, offering guests a variety of gins to enjoy this summer including Bombay, Hendricks and Warner Edwards Rhubarb gin.
