IAN McCULLOCH, MANAGING DIRECTOR, SILENT POOL DISTILLERY - Will be our first speaker of 2019 on Thursday 7 February and we will hear the story of the award-winning gin and other spirits, made at the distillery on the banks of the spring-fed Silent Pool, near Albury, Surrey.   The principle ingredient in gin, juniper berries, once grew abundantly in the Surrey Hills, so it made perfect sense for them to be based here.  To the juniper they add 24 unique botanicals - such as rose petals, kaffir lime leaves, linden, elderflower - to get just the right combination of flavours.   Where possible they source them locally.  To get the new season off to a good start, and banish winter blues, the evening will include tastings and the opportunity to purchase.
