A Wolverhampton church is offering the chance to take part in a tasting experience.

St. Peter's Collegiate Church in Wolverhampton

St Peter's Church, based in the city centre, is preparing to host a Gin tasting evening on Saturday, September 21.

The evening will offer a selection of 10 gins, with each attendee able to sample up to five. Food and other refreshments will also be available and a tasting introduction will be provided with each gin.

Gins on offer include Master's London Dry, Two Birds, Kopparberg, Aber Falls Orange Marmalade, Whitley Neill Aloe and Cucumber and Liverpool Lemongrass and Ginger. There will also be two mystery gins available in a blind tasting round.

The event is the brainchild of St Peter's Rector David Wright, who will be running the evening with his wife Alice. He spoke about his love of gin and how he and his wife wanted to share it with others.

He said: "We have been drinking gin since well before it was trendy, back in the days when the main choice was between Gordon's and an own brand, and Bombay Sapphire was considered adventurous.

"We have refined our tastes as more and more gins have become available, with a plethora of tonic brands and flavours having grown up and gin bars seeming to be found on every corner.

"We will be sharing our experience and enthusiasm with those who come to the event."

The event will take place at St Peter's House, Exchange Street, at 7.30pm on Saturday September 21, with tickets available for £17.50 at the parish office at St Peter's Church and all proceeds going to church funds.
