Gin lovers will have the opportunity to enjoy a selection of gins from the UK and overseas during a 17-day festival at two pubs in Stockport.

The Calverts Court in St. Petersgate and The Wilfred Wood in London Road, will each be serving up to 14 gins from England, Scotland, Wales, Republic of Ireland and Italy.

The festival will run from Friday February 14 to Sunday March 1 inclusive.

There will be flavoured gins, gin-based liqueurs and a distilled non-alcoholic.

The flavours include ginger and cinnamon, fresh strawberry, grapefruit, rhubarb, marmalade, watermelon, berries and orange blossom.

Among the UK gins are; Aber Falls Gingerbread Gin Liqueur, Didsbury Gin Strawberry and Sicillian Lemon, Slingsby Marmalade Gin, Whitley Neill Blackberry Gin and Hawthorn's London Dry Gin.

The overseas gins are; Malfy Gin Rosa (Italy) and Mor Irish Gin (Republic of Ireland).

And for customers who wish to enjoy a drink without alcohol, the pubs are serving Caleño Juniper and Inca Berry.

The pubs will offer a range of mixers for customers to drink with their gins, including three flavoured tonics, Valencian Orange, elderflower and pink grapefruit.

The gins are also being paired with a range of drinks, including apple juice, bitter lemon, fizzy rhubarb, ginger ale and lemonade.

The Calverts Court manager, Rachael Brown, said; "We have sourced an excellent range of gins, a number of which have not previously been available in the pub.

"We are confident that our customers will enjoy the different gins which each have their own unique appeal."

The gins will range in price from £2.85 to £3.35 (single measure) and include a free mixer.

Tasting notes on all of the gins will be available in the pubs.

In addition the pubs will also offer their regular range of gins.
