Hogarth & Gin: 1715 to now
Hosted by The Chiswick Calendar, this will be an evening of inspiration and insight from Ivan Dixon, spirits buyer for Harvey Nichols, Sipsmith and Hogarth specialist, Val Bott, MBE.
Join us for an evening of history and cultural insight into the colliding worlds of gin and West London.
The stark and alarming Beer Street and Gin Lane are two prints issued in 1751 by English artist William Hogarth, and Chiswick resident, in support of what would become the Gin Act. Designed to be viewed alongside each other, they depict the evils of the consumption of ginas a contrast to the merits of drinking beer. Fast forward to 2015, and we find Chiswick is home to Sipsmith, independent distillers of gin, and the well established Fuller's Brewery, the oldest UK family brewers.
To make sure you truly get into the spirit of things, there will be a gin tasting after the panel discussion. This will include London Dry, contemporary and flavoured.
Club Workspace, Barley Mow Centre is just off Chiswick High Road, London W4
Please arrive at 630pm sharp. Talk will begin at 7pm for one hour with tasting and questions afterwards.
