Help us achieve our long-term ambition of launching a rhubarb & blood orange Leicestershire craft gin by raising £10,000.

by Sally Davis in Leicester, England, United Kingdom

New stretch target

If we can achieve our second target - £20,000, we'll be able to create a larger initial batch of our craft rhubarb and blood orange gin, as well as invest in the brand so we can get our gin into specialist spirits shops, farmers' markets and independent stores.


Four years ago, two gin aficionados, Sally and Joanna, opened a bar in Leicester. It was their ambition to offer the best range of quality gins in the city and using their skills and a real passion for the juniper-flavoured spirit, and, hopefully, one day develop their very own flavoured gin.

North42 Rhubarb and Blood Orange Gin is a one-of-a-kind craft distilled gin being developed and distilled in Leicestershire. The inspiration for the gin came from one the bar’s best-selling house cocktails, the Rhubarb Tumble – a drink that combines a rhubarb gin with an orange liquor to create a delicious cocktail.

Sally and Joanna took the Tumble as their inspiration and have created a unique one-of-a-kind fruit gin featuring tart pink stemmed rhubarb combined with the rich jewel-like blood orange, juniper berries and a blend of other botanicals. Drink on its own as a sipping gin, or let your imagination run wild to develop a luxurious long drink.

Our recommendation? We suggest mixing it with either a tonic water with dehydrated blood orange, or a ginger ale, garnished with dehydrated citrus slices and a final flourish from a slither of crisp fresh ginger root.

ADDITIONAL DETAILS ABOUT OUR £3,000 PRIVATE DINING REWARD

Celebrate the launch of North42 Gin with a private dining experience for 12 people. Held at our award winning restaurant in Leicester, your party will enjoy exclusive private access to the entire restaurant for the evening.

Start your experience with gin tasting boards and snacks in the bar. Each gin will be carefully garnished to bring out the unique flavour profile. When your appetite is piqued, we'll move in to the restaurant, where you'll savour a carefully curated five course fine dining menu. This will include table-side presentation of some elements by one of our chefs – never before seen at North Bar & Kitchen.

Each course has been paired with a matching gin which provides a complimentary flavour and enhances the flavour journey. An alternative selection of paired wines are also available to take with each course if a guest prefers.

At the end of the evening, every guest will be given a 70cl bottle of North42 Gin to take home, along with one of our branded balloon glasses to keep as a souvenir of an unforgettable culinary experience.

This one-of-a-kind menu has been created especially for the North42 Gin campaign and will only be offered to a small number of guests. Only three private dining evenings are being offered to preserve the exclusivity of the event.
