FOR SHOPPING…

9 AUGUST

Indulge in a gin or two at Fenwick Newcastle this August as you taste some of the finest gin liqueurs on offer. Be among the first to sample the extraordinary brands coming to Fenwick Food Hall. Handcrafted in Northumberland, the gin in question is instilled with a tangy raspberry kick, using real fruit. Nothing says summer like a fruity tipple to tantalise your taste buds.
