This plus that equals…. my favourite Gins
Here’s the latest instalment in my series of posts all about what makes our lives here at home tick. This week is all about my favourite gins. It’s been hard to narrow it down if I’m honest, but here we go.
It’s not just the beautiful green bottle that makes this one of my favourite tipples but the spicy, pickle inspired botanicals.
Now I love a good pickle, preferably gherkin, followed by red cabbage, but it’s pickled onions that inspired this and though that may sound odd for a gin it really works.
It’s become a fave with the girls during gin night too, so not just me! I was lucky enough to be sent this bottle from 31Dover.com a while ago to see if I would include it in a gift guide, which I did, it was a great discovery.
I found this little gem ages ago at the Shere Hill Climb. We’d gone to watch the cars but then I saw the Silent Pool tent and stopped for a chat and a sample.
All day whilst watching the cars I couldn’t get the flavour out of my head, so before we left I stopped to buy a bottle. I must say it is another gorgeous bottle, one I have had to keep.
They have since released Copa glasses and all sorts of other delightful things like candles, with the delightful botanical themed pattern on.
This made an appearance at gin night one evening and I was the only one who liked it, but I like it a lot. The cardamom shines through and it’s the perfect gin to accompany an Indian.
This is a warm and wintry gin, I have a bottle ready for when the seasons change. I don’t know why but though I’d happily drink it on any occasion it’s not a summer gin.
I also like that is easily picked up at the supermarket, so I can get a really good gin, that’s a bit different, with my weekly shop.
This was the first Gin I got with Craft Gin Club. I had reviewed this box for them and fell in love, I’m now a subscriber myself. So If you love gin, love a subscription box and love being sent treats through the post this is one for you.
Kongsgaard is a warm, apple based gin. It has a really distinct flavour and trust me when I say the bottle did not last long.
It’s a raw gin that makes it a bit different and you really should try it.
Pickering’s Pink Grapefruit & Lemongrass Gin Liqueur
My most favourite summer gin discovery and another bottle I had been sent to review.
This gin liqueur from Pickering’s is light and fresh and could easily be drank on its own over ice. It’s not as heavy as many liqueurs and is the perfect summer drink.
Fresh, fruity and delightfully pink.
Finally, I’m linking up with #TwinklyTuesday and #StayClassyMama
Disclosure – though I have been sent some of these gins in the past to review, I have not been asked for this article and have literally gone through my extensive gin collection, bought and gifted, to pick out my favourites.
