The much anticipated Fitch & Leedes Gin and Rum Social Garden will be bringing a wide range of local and international gins and rums. All gin lovers and run aficionados will be gathering on Saturday, 29 September 2018 at the Turbine Hall in Newtown. This urban setting will not only be buzzing with hip people and fine spirits from all over the globe but also a great selection of some of the best entertainment and food from around South Africa.

As title sponsor of the Social Garden, Fitch & Leedes prides itself as the understudy to greatness, accentuating the botanical characters and subtle notes in handcrafted gins and rums. Understanding the time and effort put into perfecting a premium spirit, Fitch & Leedes mixers are made for the utmost purity in terms of quality and taste to ensure the best taste representation of what was intended by the master distiller. Fitch & Leedes will be supplying the mixers to all the fine gins and rums at the event.

“We are very excited to be part of the first Gin and Rum Social Garden to be held in Johannesburg. At Fitch & Leedes, it is our philosophy that the hard work and skill of the distiller should be amplified and celebrated. With this in mind, our range of mixers are delicately carbonated and finely balanced to ensure the flavour nuances in the spirits are the hero of the experience,” explains Brand Manager James Shaw.

Let this superb range of mixers take you back to an era when things were still made with the utmost care and craftsmanship. Inspired by the intrepid gentlemen merchantmen of London, Ralph Fitch and William Leedes, who set sail on De Tyger in 1583 in search of new, exotic tastes in India and the East, Fitch & Leedes speaks of the romance and integrity of a bygone age. There are nine timeless classics: Club Soda; Indian Tonic and Indian Tonic sugar-free; Ginger Ale; Bitter Lemon and Bitter Lemon Lite; Peach Lemonade; Lemonade; Pink Tonic and Pink Tonic sugar-free; Craft Cola and Craft Cola sugar-free; and Spicy Ginger Beer.

The Social Garden promises to be one of the highlights on Jozi’s social calendar. The Fitch & Leedes Gin and Rum Social Garden takes place on Saturday, 29 September at Turbine Hall in Newtown, Johannesburg from 11:00 till 24:00. Tickets range from R130 to R190 per person and are available via www.webtickets.co.za.
