Our founder and CEO Kathryn Willman recently jumped on board the gin bus for Cayman Cocktail Week’s “More than a G&T”, a little tour down Gin Lane." With four stops, four cocktails, and four gins, this tour delved into the story of gin from its origins to its recent renaissance.
The $50 per person fee included cocktails, bar bites and transportation on a tour touted as "A very specific cocktail tour for gin lovers, stopping at 4 surprise Cayman Bars!", and it did not disappoint. Colin Morris, a new resident said, "It was one of the best nights I've had on the island to-date!"
Attendees departed via minibus from Camana Bay to sample their way through these delectable drinks.

Of the event, Kathryn said “The tour was a fun evening in a group, but anyone attending alone would have an excellent time as well. It was a great way to meet new people and visit some of the bars I have yet to visit on island! Each cocktail was accompanied by a tasty snack and the cocktail gin-iuses provided an overview with background information which added an interesting and educational aspect to the experience.”
To cap it off each attendee received a gift bag with a selection of delectable goodies and, of course, a nip of gin!
