Plymouth Gin bar opened in Heathrow's T5

A stylish bar serving Plymouth Gin has taken up residence in Heathrow’s T5 until the end of the month.

Pernod Ricard Travel Retail Europe, has brought the hand-crafted, artisanal gin brand, after securing a new listing with World Duty Free Group.

Plymouth Gin is recognised for its rich heritage and artisanal production methods, according to its original 1793 recipe at the historic Black Friars Distillery in the city of Plymouth.

It is still produced in the original copper pot still that was installed at the distillery during the Victorian era in 1855.

The bar also features portholes containing Plymouth’s seven essential botanicals: juniper, lemon peel, orange peel, orris root, angelica root, cardamom pods and coriander seeds.

David de Miguel, global head of liquor at World Duty Free Group, explained: “The interactive elements are highly engaging and help to reinforce our position as a leading retailer with consistently innovative approaches to showcasing our expertise.

“This premium space will undeniably delight our customers, allowing them to enjoy Plymouth gin in a new and exciting way, making for a unique and memorable shopping experience.”

The bar also welcomes travellers to attend a drop-in cocktail masterclass, where they will be given the chance to create one of three unique Plymouth gin cocktails – the Hedgerow Slider, Marguerite or Gimlet.

JC Iglesias, global brand director for Plymouth gin, says: “It is fantastic to see Plymouth’s unique heritage being brought to life in such a visually impactful way at Heathrow Terminal 5."
