A NEW gin bar is set open its doors today.

The Gin To My Tonic Bar will open in the same Faringdon building where the idea for the company first came about.

Following a series of festivals, shows and tasting events across the country in recent years, the business is now putting down roots in Bromsgrove.

Paul Hudson-Jones, co-founder, said: “Gin distilleries often refer to their locality when creating their own gins, and as the UK’s largest touring Gin Festival and a producer of our own range of gins, we’ve always had a desire to put Faringdon on the gin-map.

“Faringdon is an important part of our story, and we hope we can create a hub for the local community, whilst also bringing in new people to the town, and enriching Faringdon’s much-loved Market Square and High Street.”
