Gilbert’s Gin Garden - 06.27.13
Here’s the latest from NOTCOT’s London-based editor and resident zoologist, Justine Aw!
Last night we enjoyed the launch of The Gilbert Scott’s new Gin Garden created in collaboration with Hendrick’s Gin. A garden under the arches at George Gilbert Scott’s stunning Midland Grand Hotel at St Pancras Station, the space was filled with playful touches including a bathtub bench and Hendrick’s phonebooth/bar. More photos of the new Gin Garden and stunning architecture on the next page.
The stunning Victorian facade of St. Pancras station.
A playful, summery outdoor space.
Gin and tonics with popcorn, an unexpected combination!
Lovely menu of garden tipples.
The gorgeous Meadowsweet cocktail, combining Hendrick’s, thyme, elderflower, lemongrass and juniper, all whipped together and topped with lavender.
One of three gorgeous gin and tonics of the night (lemongrass and lavender), others included cucumber and rose, and elderflower and thyme.

Gorgeous canapes to accompany our cocktails.

A stunningly beautiful staircase within the former station.
G&T’s and popcorn!
An adorable mini gin!
Mini Hendricks looks so tiny alongside its regular sized counterpart.
The garden opens to the public tonight, June 26th and is set to stay open all summer (and possibly longer)!
