They will be served in Copa de Balon glasses, which are bulbous in shape, and are perfect for enjoying gin and tonics.

The Gate House manager, Benjamin Leese, said: "The festival will showcase some wonderful gins from across Britain.

"They have not previously been available in the pub and I’m sure that our customers will enjoy drinking them."

The gins will range in price from £2.55 to £3.75 (single measure) and include a free mixer.

Tasting notes on all of the gins plus guidance on the best mixers for each gin will be available in the pubs too...and the pubs will continue to serve their regular ranges of up to 12 gins.
