Explore our NEW range of Copa Gin & Tonics
After the people of Great Britain gulped their way through 3.5 million gallons of gin in 1721, the beverage became a staple of British heritage. Fast forward a few centuries and Spain is the largest market for premium gin in Europe and the second largest in the world.
With gin becoming more trendy and a market powerhouse of world trade, the Spanish have spectacularly reinvented ‘Gin & Tonic’ with bulbous goblets and botanical garnishes – the perfect addition to our España-inspired All New Menu!
Away from the simple squeeze of lime, a Spanish ‘Gin & Tonic’ is decoratively garnished with different flowers, herbs and spices to amplify the gin’s natural origins. The variety of combinations make sampling different flavour profiles from a generous Copa glass a must-do activity.
With nine options on the All New Menu, it’s the perfect time to go G&T here at La Tasca – check out our guide below.
