GREENALL’S GIN LAUNCHES SOUTH AFRICA’S FIRST VIRTUAL HAPPY HOUR

Not a lot of gin producers can claim to be THE first and original London Dry Gin, and host South Africa’s FIRST Virtual Happy Hour, but Greenall’s Gin and the Greenall’s Gin Ready to Drink serves are the exception to this.
 
With COVID-19 we cannot ignore what’s happening in the world around us right now, with the state of emergency having been called in South Africa and with the country being under lockdown for 21 days starting at midnight on March 26th, now more than ever it’s important however that we stay connected with family and friends.
 
In light of this, staying at home shouldn’t mean that you can’t still enjoy happy hour and bond with your loved ones and friends while enjoying a refreshing G&T, or a cocktail featuring immune-boosting ingredients.
 
The Greenall’s Virtual Happy Hour will take place every Friday, starting Friday 27 March 2020 from 6 pm – 7 pm and will be live on most social media channels.

GREENALL’S ORIGINAL LONDON DRY GIN:
 
Greenall’s Original London Dry Gin is a classic London Dry gin with rich juniper notes, balanced with mature citrus and spice. The gin is distilled in a traditional copper pot still with eight botanicals added by hand which include juniper, coriander and angelica.
 
Recommended serve – Greenall’s Basil Smash:
 
3 incredible benefits of Basil: 

  1. Anti-inflammatory

Basil and its strong anti-inflammatory properties can prove to be a cure to a variety of diseases and disorders. 

  1. Fights Depression

Basil’s essential oil may help manage depression and anxiety too. The herb is believed to stimulate neurotransmitters that regulate the hormones responsible for inducing happiness and energy.  

  1. Combatting infection

Various practitioners of traditional medicine have used basil as an antimicrobial agent, and some scientific research supports this use.

GREENALL’S WILD BERRY PINK GIN:

The gin is made by distilling raspberries and blackberries with more traditional Greenall’s Gin botanicals. Greenall’s Wild Berry Pink Gin contains zero added sugar, unlike some leading flavoured gin brands which contain up to 90g of sugar per litre.
 
Recommended serve: Greenall’s Wild Berry Pink Gin is best enjoyed with premium tonic water and a raspberry garnish.
