The Wild Garden of Rademon Cocktail
Gin lovers are in for a treat this summer as The Merchant Hotel plays host to a very special event in its Rooftop Garden. The Shortcross Twilight Picnic event will take place on Wednesday August 10 at 7.30pm and will showcase the locally crafted Shortcross Gin which is distilled just outside Downpatrick.
Guests will have the opportunity to meet the owners of the brand and discover more about the distilling process, while enjoying gin cocktails, signature serves and delicious picnic food that will complement the drinks.
There will also be a specially made gin cocktail – The Wild Garden of Rademon – that has been inspired by a luxury summer picnic with gooseberry, elderflower yogurt and lavender hued Parfait Amour all making an appearance.
