The Gate House manager, Laura Mason, said: "The majority of gins in the festival have not been available in the pub beforehand and I am looking forward to serving them.

"The festival promises to be great fun and I am certain that customers will enjoy trying the superb range of gins we have on offer."

The UK gins on offer will include Jawbox Single Dry Gin, Masons Dry Yorkshire Gin, Wrecking Coast Clotted Cream Gin, Brecon Special Reserve, Finni's Black Bee Gin and Bathtub Gin.
