A SEVENTEEN-day gin festival is coming to Salisbury next weekend.

From cucumber to pineapple and mango, Salisbury's Wetherspoon, The King's Head Inn on Bridge Street, will be hosting a gin festival from August 16, with a wide selection of flavours for gin lovers to try.

Fans of the juniper-based spirit can enjoy flavoured options, classic options, and distilled non-alcoholic options, all with mixers included in the price.

The King’s Head Inn manager, Robert Stephens, said: "We have sourced an excellent range of gins which have not previously been available in the pub.

"We are confident that our customers will enjoy trying the different gins which each have their own unique appeal."

Some of the UK gins include The Lakes Rhubarb and Rosehip Gin Liqueur, Zymurgorium FlaGingo Pink Gin and Sipsmith Gin Strawberries and Cream, while Aviation Gin (USA), Tower Bridge London Dry Gin (Moldova) and Ceders Crisp (Sweden) are just some of the gin choices arriving from overseas.

The festival will be running from Friday, August 16 until Sunday, September 1.
