There’s nothing sweeter than a freebie, and national pub chain Greene King is set to prove the point this Wednesday by giving away a FREE gin and tonic in over 600 pubs for very unusual currency – cake.

The quirky offer has been announced to mark the launch of four new Mrs Cuthbert’s gin flavours at selected Greene King pubs. To celebrate the introduction of the traditional dessert-inspired gin liquors, Greene King is offering a delicious flavoured gin and tonic for anyone who brings a slice of cake into pub on Wednesday 14 November.

As well as the quintessentially British Victoria Sponge-flavoured gin, the pubs will also be offering Blueberry Muffin and Rhubarb and Custard Crumble gins, as well as a bespoke flavour exclusively produced for Greene King pubs, a Passionfruit Pavlova gin.

Sweet-toothed guests will be able to provide a range of baked treats to qualify for the giveaway, including traditional Victoria sponge, cupcakes, slices and cake bars.

Calum Cameron, senior drinks category manager at Greene King said: “The trend for flavoured gins is huge at the moment, and Mrs Cuthbert’s dessert-infused gin liqueurs are inspired by 1940s home-baking, with fun and nostalgic flavours that make a refreshing alternative to traditional gin and tonic – we’re sure guests who visit our pubs will love them.”

To redeem the unconventional offer, guests will have to visit a participating pub on Wednesday 14 November and show a slice of cake at the bar for a free Mrs Cuthbert’s Victoria Sponge Cake gin liquor and tonic.

Any guests wanting to try another flavour can bring in a muffin, a crumble or a pavlova instead in exchange for the corresponding flavoured gin and tonic.

There is one drink permitted per person and guests will need to be quick to get hold of one, as it is only available while stocks last. Terms and conditions apply, participating pubs only, promotion not available in Scotland.
