Gin lovers will have the chance to enjoy an array of gins from the UK and overseas during a 17-day festival at Wetherspoons pubs around the area, including Falmouth, Camborne, Truro and Helston.

The pubs will be serving up to 14 gins from England, Scotland, Wales, Republic of Ireland and Italy from Friday, February 14 to Sunday, March 1.

There will be flavoured gins, gin-based liqueurs and a distilled non-alcoholic. Flavours include ginger and cinnamon, fresh strawberry, grapefruit, rhubarb, marmalade, watermelon, berries and orange blossom.

Among the UK gins are Aber Falls Gingerbread Gin Liqueur, Didsbury Gin Strawberry and Sicilian Lemon, Slingsby Marmalade Gin, Whitley Neill Blackberry Gin and Hawthorn's London Dry Gin.

The overseas gins are Malfy Gin Rosa from Italy and Mor Irish Gin from the Republic of Ireland.

And for customers who wish to enjoy a drink without alcohol, the pub is serving Caleño Juniper and Inca Berry.

The pub will offer a range of mixers for customers to drink with their gins, including three flavoured tonics, Valencian Orange, elderflower and pink grapefruit.

The gins are also being paired with a range of drinks, including apple juice, bitter lemon, fizzy rhubarb, ginger ale and lemonade.

The manager of John Francis Basset in Camborne, Gavin Coughlin, said; "We have sourced an excellent range of gins, a number of which have not previously been available in the pub.

"We are confident that our customers will enjoy the different gins which each have their own unique appeal."

The gins will range in price from £2.85 to £3.35 for a single measure and include a free mixer.

Tasting notes on all of the gins will be available in the pub.
