Gin festival is just the tonic
Clitheroe was certainly in good spirits as Holmes Mill's first ever gin festival proved the perfect tonic for those looking for something a little different at the weekend.
Hundreds of gin lovers flocked to the former textile mill for the dazzling two-day event where more than 30 gins - from local, independent and national distilleries - gave even veteran tasters a splash of variety.
Cuckoo, Batch, Bedrock, Grins and Herno were just some of the exhibitors there while masterclasses ensured visitors left with a little bit of gin knowledge to go with their souvenir balloon glass.
