THERE were 40 new gins to delight the tastebuds at this weekend's gin festival.

The event organised by The Gin Society went down a storm with people travelling from far and wide for the event.

Kendra Kennedy from The Gin Society said: "We have had 40 new gins on offer this festival as we like to be constantly changing what's on offer.

"The last four to five years has seen an explosion of gin and this year has been another busy one with lots of our regulars."

Ray Woolkead from Divine Gin said: "It has been a brilliant event. The people have been fantastic."
