Hop along to Aviemore for Food, Drink and Music

North Hop, the food and drink event, arrives in Aviemore on Saturday 25th February at the Macdonald Aviemore Resort.

Channel 4’s 2015 Shed of the Year winner Walter Micklethwait is launching his brand new locally distilled First Edition Inshriach Speyside Dry Gin at the festival, inviting festival go-ers to sample it in perfect serves and cocktails from a rustic gin truck fashioned from a vintage horse box.

There will also be Poco Prosecco, a cute vintage Italian Piaggio Ape van parked up in the resort’s Osprey Arena all set to dispense fizz on tap.
