plymouth Gin world gin day

Listen up folks! This Saturday (10th June) Plymouth Gin and the Rivington Greenwich are celebrating World Gin Day with £5 G&Ts all day long!

It’s time to get tipsy as Plymouth Gin is a living legend in the gin industry, as it’s a little-known fact that it was the world’s first spirit to be called ‘dry gin’ when it was first developed in 1793.

Rivington Greenwich’s marine terrace is also the perfect location for guests to enjoy one of the specially created gin cocktails and as the spirit continues to be one of the nation’s best-loved drinks, this year will mark the 9th anniversary of World Gin Day, so why not go and celebrate the occasion with Plymouth Gin?

Located in the same building as the Greenwich Picture House, Rivington Greenwich is set over two stories, with a mezzanine seating 45 people for private parties and a 25-seat terrace. Like its sister restaurant in Shoreditch, the walls are whitewashed, the floors stripped wood and the tables dressed with white linen, and the emphasis is on simple, British dishes cooked with ingredients from small, bespoke suppliers. As well as the main dining area, there is a more relaxed area at the entrance for cocktails and snacks such as sticky pig ribs, Scotch egg, caper mayonnaise and homemade fish fingers, tartare sauce all to be found in the “Snacks” section of the menu, and a bar that spans the width of the room.
