He said: “The first week of soft opening has been extremely positive and we are fully booked this weekend.

"As with any new venture, we are learning rapidly and trying to implement changes as we go.

"Customers have been amazing and incredibly supportive.

“We’re so happy to be in Warwick and look forward to meeting lots of new people over the coming weeks and months, and of course, welcome some of them back.”.

Drinkers can select from UK best sellers, local gins, international gins and gins with a story as well as the bar’s own infused flavoured gins.

Many local distillers are among more than 100 different gins to be stocked at the bar, where there will be the opportunity to showcase their local provenance.

As well as gin, visitors can select from a range of cocktails, wines and spirits, including five different types of prosecco.

The bar also offers alcohol-free gins as well as the option of bottling any new-found favourite gin to take home.
