When we opened in October 2014, we had 3 gins on our shelves. Gordons, Bombay Sapphire and Tanqueray sat proudly on the bar and we added Hendricks a few months later after requests from some of our customers. Now two and a half years on, we have 70 different gins. Or 71 Or maybe 72 by now. It changes regularly, because both Matt and Katie have, erm.. well, an obsession with buying new gins on a weekly basis.
It really kick started when they introduced Warner Edwards rhubarb gin. A local company with a great story, Warner Edwards gin sales at the pub soared in no time, especially with the addition of their
Elderflower, Dry, Sloe, Melissa and Honeybee gins. Gradually week by week, the OKH bought in new gins with different tastes, aromas, botanicals all with their own distinctive pairings with various garnishes. The introduction of Fever Tree tonics only added to the excitement of our customers on what to have this week!
We don't list all the gins as it would take us forever (I just had a sneak peek and they are now at over 80) - but ask in house for the range, whether you prefer dry, fruity or just plain odd - we have them. Look out for Gina the gin lady, who will be around the neck of one of our bottles of gin - that will be the gin of the week and just £4 for a 25ml shot with a Fever Tree tonic.
