I'm getting hungry just writing this bloody thing! So anyone who knows Katie and I will invariably have had the pleasure of hearing us rant about how much we LOVE our local Spanish tapas restaurant Tapa! You may if you've been very lucky have been taken there for dinner! This is literally our favourite place in Edinburgh and we are biased but this is more than likely the greatest tapas place in the whole world - no contest! #ISAIDNOCONTEST
Now apart from being two of the nicest guys out there Dan and Greg are two wonderful hosts who keep on coming up with wonderful events for the community at large especially when it comes to promoting local produce and of course Spanish culture. If you've ever taken in a New Year at Tapa you will remember it fondly! So when the opportunity to hold a little gin soiree came along they jumped at the chance with a several week window to pull it all together. With little to no advertising this went from a small informal event to being sponsored by Fever Tree and several amazing gin brands. Talk about things growing legs!
So imagine it - ten-ish stalls of super high quality gins and mixers and accompanying Jamon and bread and 3/4 different kinds of Paella throughout the day. It was foodie heaven. I ate my own bodyweight in Jamon Iberico. As you can see the regulars and a whole new bunch of new 'spirited' revellers and aficionados turned out en force to sample the festivals wares. I've never tasted gin like it. Family favourite seemed to be by unanimous vote the nautical themed Nordes. I won't even begin to describe how lovely this gin was - you just have to go buy some and see for yourself. And Tapa are doing an extra special Burns Night this January 25th as they are exploring the special relationship between Spanish Sherry and our own national drink!
