Greene King is giving away free gin in more than 250 pubs this weekend in exchange for some very unusual currency — rhubarb.
All gin lovers need to do to claim their free drink is visit one of 250 Greene King pubs this weekend (August 18 and 19) and swap the seasonal produce for a chilled glass of Whitley Neill rhubarb and ginger gin with tonic.
The unconventional offer has been launched to meet the rising demand for unique and quirky flavour combinations and botanicals in gin.
Sue Thomas-Taylor, marketing director for Greene King Locals, said: “Everyone loves a gin and tonic on a British summer day, and there’s no denying a chilled glass that you haven’t had to pay for tastes even better!
On the house
“Our pubs are stocked up and looking forward to welcoming gin lovers to enjoy a taste of rhubarb goodness on the house this weekend.”
To redeem the quirky offer, guests will have to visit the pub this weekend and swap their stick of rhubarb at the bar for the free G&T.
There is one drink permitted per person, but guests will need to be quick to get hold of one as they are only available while stocks last. Tinned rhubarb will also be accepted as payment.
