The Best Taste Of Devon In A Glass

Every good glass needs is a great drink. That why Dartington Crystal have opened their very own Devon Gin Bar at their Torrington site to allow visitors and local customers to sample the best of Devon’s tipples in a relaxed and friendly venue.

The Devon Ginspiration Bar is serving a string of Devon made gins, Devon wines and beers – all served up in the best choice of Dartington glass so you can “try before you buy”.  The bar is now 12 noon until 7pm weekdays and 12pn-4pm on weekends and it can be booked for functions and events.

Dartington MD Neil Hughes says “we hit on the idea for our own bar to let our visitors enjoy a taste of Devon drinks from Dartington glasses. We were also conscious that we have a local customer base that might want to drop in and use the venue. Devon has some of the best names in gin in the UK with Plymouth and Salcombe plus many other new brands such as Wicked Wolf from Exmoor. Sharphams wine is a leading English vineyard and our beers are from the Devon based Bays brewery.”

Commercial Director Richard Halliday adds “ A selection of good G&T’s is key but in time we will offer gin cocktails and ‘guest’ gins too. Whether you are shopping here or dropping in after work we hope to offer a new and different experience to the traditional pub or bar. Our suppliers have helped us set the bar up very quickly and our staff have done a fantastic job in creating this new  venue”

The Devon Ginspiration Bar is furnished with an eclectic mix of up-cycled furniture and fittings with a special Union Jack lighting feature made using a variety of crystal tumblers to reflect the bars very British theme.
