Now I must admit I never knew this but Scotland is actually the largest producer of gin in the British Isles. It accounts for 70% of the UK's overall gin production, and they're looking to make Scotland just as famous for it as it is for whiskey.
There's obviously a rich tradition and heritage of distilling already well established in Scotland, and thus you can expect some of the best gins in the world to come from North of the border.
But that's not all - the Scots are also famed for their exceptional seafood, with its pristine waters offering up a dazzling array of shellfish, haddock and of course - Scottish Salmon.
Looking to explore these two traditions and bring them together for one night, Manchester's leading seafood restaurant Randall & Aubin are offering an evening of 6 Scottish oysters and 6 different Scottish gins for only £25.
Taking place on Thursday 5th September, you can tuck into the freshest oysters imaginable while drinking 6 paired gins, a match made in heaven for lovers of all things indulgent.
