GIN-tastic news!

We’ve got some gin-tastic news if you’re a number one fan of Lidl’s Hortus gin range! The supermarket is launching a pop-up gin club, and it’s heading all over the UK.

Our love of gin seems to be stronger than ever and if, like us, you’re mourning the end of a summer filled with crisp G&T’s we’ve got some boozy news to help you through this difficult time.

Lidl is launching its very own pop-up gin club, which showcases its Hortus gin range (opens in new tab), and it’s travelling across the UK throughout late October and November.

The House of Hortus will launch in London on the 26th October at 19 Greek Street, Soho and will then be heading to Queen Street in Cardiff and Castle Street in Edinburgh.

Once inside, visitors can amble through the Pink Gin Liqueur Lounge where you can sample the Raspberry, Rhubarb & Ginger and Rose & Pomegranate Hortus gin liqueurs. (opens in new tab)

You can also participate in an immersive experience in the sensory Botanical Garden where you will learn about gin pairings while enjoying your own tipple from the signature Hortus range.


The Pink Gin Lounge looks like an ideal place to sample Lidl's popular gin liqueurs 

To finish up you’ll head up to the Spirits in the Sky bar, which is fitted with a starry night sky – perfect for those Instagram shots!

To enter Lidl’s House of Hortus you’ll need to book tickets via EventBrite (opens in new tab) but they won’t cost you a penny – this is a bar where the drinks are free!

Each ticket entitles you to two free-pour serves of Lidl’s award-winning Hortus gin range or another spirit.

Speaking about the exciting gin club, Paul McQuade, head of spirits buying at Lidl UK, explained: ‘The nation’s love of gin shows no signs of slowing down, so we’ve decided to listen to the fantastic response from our customers and take our innovative own-label Hortus premium Gin range on the road and invite everyone to come try our superb range of Gins.’

He added: ‘The festive season countdown has officially started and The House of Hortus will help us give our customers a sneak peek at the exciting new and existing spirits and liqueurs that we have in stores.’
