Earlier this week, 40 St Paul’s brought home the Best Gin List award in the country from the Imbibe Drinks List of the Year 2017. The Jewellery Quarter based bar won the prestigious award and we are not surprised! Not only because it’s well loved in the area but because it took them six months to write the gin list.
The hard work paid off, as the judges mentioned that “The two books sent in by 40 St Paul’s weren’t just held up as the best entry for the gin list category, but as an excellent example of what bars should be doing when they specialise in any spirits category.” With one judge commenting that the menu was ” quite ballsy, we haven’t seen anything else like this today.”
The bar opened in 2015, they have over 140 gins and full table service for 24 customers. The bar cultivates an intimate, friendly and comfortable environment. Every gin available provides a leading taste experience within the category or has historical importance. You can be ensured the best gins have been selected for you. They provide a bespoke flavour matching service for their customers. As well as a promise to create an intimate comfortable environment for you and your friends to enjoy.
At 40 St Paul’s in the Jewellery Quarter, they are committed to showing the very best of the gins available. Meaning they use the high quality glassware, best ice and high quality garnishes. Their need to constantly improve has led them to develop their own tonic.
They don’t only care about the way your drinks taste, smell and look, they also care about the environment. They have eliminated as much plastic from their packaging as possible. All their fruit waste nourishes local allotments.
Even if you are not a gin fan, you should still try this location. They may specialise in gin but have all the usual spirits, a small selection of wine, beer and can make some excellent soft drinks.
Congrats 40 St Paul’s!
