Anyone who knows me knows I’m a massive fan of Scottish gins. Having two Glaswegian parents and four Scottish grandparents I will always describe myself as Scottish…despite the fact that I was born in England, technically I’m full of Scots blood, right? My gin collection is filled with a very large number of gins from… Continue reading ISGD 2020 – Wild Island Gin
22.6.2020 It's pretty crazy to think that we've now spent almost 100 days in lockdown. I know it has been eased and we're able to do much more, but I for one am missing the pub.

This pairing dinner is available to the general public on 31st July, 14th August and 4th September and costs only £39.

A quick internet search… Continue reading Gin O’ndina at Harry’s Dolce Vita
Back in August I received an invite to the launch of a new gin, Brentingby.

I played through a number of strategies in my head about the best way of approaching this. The first… Continue reading Brentingby Gin

I wouldn't normally be quite so enthusiastic about an invitation to a 1st birthday party, but things are a little different when it's for a gin company!
A couple of weeks ago I was contacted by the lovely Georgia from GribbonBerry communications agency, who asked if I would like to attend the launch of Nouaison Gin by G'Vine...why people even need to ask these questions is completely beyond me! "Of course I would!!" I was already a fan of G'Vine's Floraison Gin,… Continue reading Nouaison Gin Launch
