Another first appearance at the New Inn as this Middlesborough based band perform on the first day of The New Inn Gin Fest. 

BQSL will be a great visual show, one that simply has to be seen live to appreciate. 

Be Quiet. Shout Loud! are a five piece band that describe themselves as "a cacophony of disco, indie and dance mashed up inside a pop blender" 

In 2014 they spent the year releasing twelve singles in twelve months, quite an achievement, and the followed this up in 2015 

compiling those singles into their first full length album "The 2014 Years"

"Be Quiet. Shout Loud!'s indefinable style and visceral energy is quite a sight to behold... One of the most exciting bands in the North East right now." - NARC Magazine

"A zippy chunk of off-kilter pop, which gradually builds into a sky-scraping, indie-disco floor filling, sonic blast of yee-ha'l -The Crack Magazine

Saturday - 8pm

Uptown Monotones 

​We welcome this Austrian based band to the New Inn Gin Festival whilst they are on a mini tour of the UK! 

 

What starts off as a classy folk concert quickly mutates into a rollicking clash of pulsating sound clouds that reverberates throughout the concert hall. The Uptown Monotones are known for consistently serving up musical surprises. Their repertoire features a fresh mix of off-beat, driving pop songs, unique cover versions and a barrage of electronic and ethno-inspired improvisational performances. Way-out, and yet strangely down-home ... 
Their explosive stage show will rock your boat like a hurricane!

A few of the Distilleries at the Festival ... 

Our Gin festival this year will feature no fewer than 70 Distilleries and we will have on offer over 100 different gins, below are a few of the participating distilleries that you may find interesting reading ... 

Steampunk Spirits

Steampunk Spirits produce a range of superb gin, flavoured spirits & rums that will tantalise your tastebuds.

 

Their Steampunk Gin is extremely rare is the grandaddy of all their gins.

 

It is made with 8 botanicals including three types of citrus peel, this bright and versatile gin has proven itself to be very popular. Winner of the Gold Medal at The World Gin Masters in 2016, you can be assured of its quality.

Our perfect serve is to smash a few basil leaves between your palms and add to a copa de ballon gin glass. Add a few cubes of ice, a double measure of Steampunk Gin and top up with a quality tonic water. Voila!

 

In our opinion, ‘The World’s Best G n T”.

Copperhead

Copperhead Gin, The Alchemist's Gin! 

 

Mr. Copperhead was a notorious alchemist, in search of the elixir of life. During his pursuit, and much to his own surprise, he conjured up an exquisite composition, using a copper pot still and a recipe based on five essential botanicals: angelica, juniper, cardamon, orange peel and coriander seed. 

 

Copperhead now have four great gins in their range, all of these are simply stunning and very high quality gins. 


Enjoy the alchemist’s gin!

Malfy Gin

The birthplace of gin – distilled by the Vergnano Family, a sip of MALFY™ Gin captures the perfect gin moment: sitting on a sunny terrace, enjoying the view, “Dolce far niente”, the sweet art of doing nothing…

The Malfy distillery is in Moncalieri, just outside the city of Torino - An area famed for its production of fine wines and spirits. Established in 1906, Torino Distillati is run by the Vergnano family, Carlo, his wife Piera and their children Rita and Valter. Beppe Ronco and Denis Muni are our Master Distillers.

The Malfy range of gins are one of the New Inn favourites and best selling gins in our range. 

Tiny Rebel 

A few words from the Tiny Rebel Company ....

 

We love gin. It’s often our nightcap after a long day at a beer festival, or something a bit different during after-work beers on a Friday. And the modern Gin Craze is pretty similar to the recent rise of brewing. In our eyes, beer and gin are perfect partners.

Our first attempt to show our love for gin was brewing Gin & Juice, a pale ale packed with gin botanicals like juniper berries, citrus peels and exotic spices.

But we wanted to go one step further. We wanted to make our love for gin totally overt. We wanted to actually make gin. So that’s what we’ve gone and done.

However, being the lovers of variety that we are, we couldn’t settle on one idea of what makes a gin “good”. Just like with beer, there isn’t one magic formula for a “good” beer with everything else being rubbish. It totally depends on mood, tastes, and in the case of gin, what mixer you’d like with it.

So we’ve distilled not one, not two, but THREE gins that we’re absolutely in love with.

Dr Eamers' Emporium

Dr Eamers' Gin is made by hand in small batches, in the heart of The West Midlands.

 

They use only use the finest botanicals to create unique and distinct flavours.

These flavours are further enhanced by the traditional method used to infuse the botanicals into the spirit, through the process of cold-compounding. 

Dr Eamers' create three distinct Gins and two Gin Liqueurs, you will be able to find some of their great tasting range on the back bar at our Gin Festival this year. 

Buss Spirits

Meet the founder of Buss Spirits ... 

 

With the foundation of the first dedicated Belgian Gin & Tonic bar in 2013 (Bar Bounce – Antwerp – Belgium) Serge Buss was again leading the way in a growing niche market.

The experiences and customer input there, proved the perfect testing grounds for new ideas and recipes.

All the creations in the Buss Spirits range are the results of an exciting period of experimenting with wild combinations of natural ingredients and cooking techniques from the restaurant business.

Great tasting gin!
