Q: What do raspberries, hibiscus, allspice and sea buckhorn have in common?
A: They’re just some of the botanicals featured in La Bonne Auberge’s newly-expanded drinks’ menu, specially created to celebrate Scotland’s thriving Gin scene.
GLASGOW-based La Bonne Auberge is already an award winner for its unbeatable selection of international champagnes, fizz and fine-tasting wines. Now, in a nod to the spirit of the Auld Alliance, no less than seven specialist Scottish Gins have been added to the French brasserie’s drinks’ menu. (Full Gin menu is below)
A selection of Scottish favourites including Eden Mill Love Gin, Edinburgh Gin Raspberry Liqueur, The Botanist Islay, Caorunn Gin and Rock Rose Gin proudly sit on the new menu which now extends to 15 options. To ensure that customers order the perfect G&T, the menu also recommends the ideal Fever Tree tonic with which the gin of choice should be paired.
As part of the Gin-ebrations, La Bonne Auberge will also feature monthly guest gins from around the world to further demonstrate the versatility of the tipple which is fast becoming Scotland’s ‘other, other national drink’. The first guest gin will be one of the highest award-winning gins in the world, G’Vine, the luxury French gin crafted in the Cognac region, distilled from grapes and infused with vine flowers.
Marc Jones, general manager of La Bonne Auberge, notes: “At La Bonne Auberge, we pride ourselves on offering great tasting, cooked-to-order meals made from locally-sourced ingredients at prices which, we believe, represent the best value for money in the city.
“Now, with an increased Gin selection available from our expanded drinks menu, all served in our unique Gin glasses, we’re giving our customers yet another reason to pop into La Bonne Auberge to have a great time with friends and family.”
To celebrate this new beGINning, 100 x 500ml La Bonne Auberge-branded Gin glasses have been specially commissioned so that the perfect drink is sipped from the perfect glass, making the experience even more enjoyable for gin lovers.
