Liverpool’s new city centre gin garden celebrated its opening weekend with a Light Night preview and Royal Gin Garden Party. And I was lucky enough to get an invite.
Fezziwig’s Gin Yard kept the gin cocktails flowing in the sunshine and intimate courtyard.
The walled courtyard of Furnival’s Well in the old Bridewell has been transformed and named in honour of Charles Dickens’ party-loving Christmas Carol character Mr Fezziwig. Dickens researched his novel The Uncommercial Traveller at the Campbell Square jail, so owners Gracious Development Company were keen to pay tribute with their latest venue.
Fezziwig’s Gin Yard has been created in partnership with Bombay Sapphire (my second fave Gin) and stocks a hand-picked selection of gins, combining familiar favorite brands with more unusual small batch producers. Gardeners have given the courtyard a lush green theme, with a living wall installed on one side and a wall of growing gin-related herbs on another. It’s all designed to add to the overall gin lovers’ experience, making it more than just a place for a quick G&T.
General manager Nick Romano says the launch gave Fezziwig’s a chance to share its new look and its bespoke gin cocktail menu with guests.
I will deffinatley be coming and spending my summer here, sunshine and gin what else could a girl wish for.
Till Next Time! x
