A Clarkston pub is searching for a gin expert to become its first ever ‘Gin-ius’ who will dream up a new gin cocktail.

The White Cart Chef & Brewer pub on East Kilbride Road is searching for aspiring drink experts to come up with a new gin creation, with the winner bagging themselves a year’s supply of gin, a £500 cash prize and the title of the pub’s first official ‘Gin-ius’.

The chosen candidate will have to know their Gordon’s from their Hendricks to be in with a chance of winning the dream role.

Anne Cushley, general manager, said: “Gin is undergoing a huge revival and many of us would agree that a G&T is our tipple of choice. But while we might think we’re a gin expert, how many of us can actually claim to be a fully-fledged ‘Gin-ius’?

“We’re putting this to the test by challenging our guests to share what makes them the ultimate ‘Gin-ius’. Whether you prefer a slice of lime, a dash of cordial or a splash of fruit liqueur, tell us why you think you deserve to be our resident gin advisor and you could bag yourself the ultimate gin-lover’s prize - as well as the title of Chef & Brewer’s first official ‘Gin-ius’.

“We can’t wait to put Clarkston’s gin-eral knowledge to the test.”

To be in with a chance of winning the accolade, Clarkston locals simply need to visit the Chef & Brewer website www.chefandbrewer.com/gin-ius/competition/ before Monday, August 7.

The chosen winner will need to be available week commencing Monday, August 28, to create the gin cocktail.
