Mayor Opens Award Winning Gin Bar at intu Merry Hill's Waterfront

A first-of-its-kind bar, Dr Eamer’s Gin Distillery has officially opened at The Waterfront

A first-of-its-kind bar, Dr Eamer’s Gin Distillery has officially opened on Monday 14 October at The Waterfront.

The family run Black Country business, which lovingly handcrafts small batches of award-winning gin in Dudley, will have the Mayor, Councillor David Stanley, onsite at the grand unveiling. The bar will also offer classes, demonstrations, tastings and a selection of nibbles and bar food.

The venue features a striking 20 ft. statement bar crafted out of cold rolled steel and their 100-litre Copper Pot Still, Doris, will be situated within the bar, distilling award-winning gin. As well as a range of exclusive gins there will be locally produced beers, craft ales and cocktails.

The bar has created new jobs and will be soft launched to friends and media on Saturday night.

Jordan Lunn, owner of Dr Eamer’s Gin Emporium, said: “We are really looking forward to launching the new bar, seeing new and familiar faces and showing everyone what we have to offer. It’s a family run business and so much heart and soul has gone into the idea and the execution, from distilling the gins to brainstorming new botanicals to try and new cocktail recipes to offer.

“We’re honoured to be opening alongside a host of other new independent vendors at the Waterfront, as it’s such an exciting place to be especially with all the new developments coming up.”

Jaspal Singh, asset surveyor at intu Merry Hill said: “The Waterfront is continuing to grow as a leisure destination for our customers, and we’ve had great feedback since announcing Red By Night, Steps Coffee and Dr Eamer’s Gin Bar. We’ve got lots of exciting new launches and events line up for the festive season and would encourage everyone to stay tuned for more updates.”

The announcement of a brand new Mango store due to launch this winter further builds on a year of growth for intu Merry Hill, which has welcomed 20 new and improved stores within the last 12 months. This list also includes luxury retailer Flannels and crowd favourites Next and Primark last year.
