To celebrate the 900th anniversary of St Bartholomew’s Hospital the League has selected a special gin.
Monks in the 11th century used gin as medicine and later it became part of a doctor’s kit. William Hogarth, whose paintings adorn Barts Great Hall, also painted ‘Gin Lane’ depicting the evils of gin. Therefore, this seemed a fitting way to mark 900 years of Barts!
The gin is available direct from The Hay Distillery a small distillery in Hay-on-Wye. You can visit their store here.
A small percentage of each bottle sold will be donated to the League.
We hope you will raise a glass or two to commemorate this historic occasion!
