Bamboo Door in Leopold Square has signed a deal with entrepreneur Tom Lord.

His spirit - which has already sold hundreds of bottles with orders coming in from the four corners of the UK - will become the house gin and form the basis of a brand-new cocktail menu.

Tom, who has had a long and successful career managing and developing bars like FirePit Rocks on West Street, decided he couldn't sit back and watch the pandemic wreck the hospitality industry.
