ISGD 2020 – The Orkney Distillery

My gin collection is filled with a very large number of gins from… Continue reading ISGD 2020 – The Orkney Distillery

Jaffa Cake Gin – Negroni

When I was contacted by Atom Brands and asked if I fancied trying their Jaffa Cake Gin, I'm not going to lie, I was a little dubious.  I immediately heard chants of "#StopFuckingWithGin" ringing in my ears and was worried this could be a very sticky, sickly, sweet drink.  However, knowing that Atom Brands were… Continue reading Jaffa Cake Gin – Negroni

Cantium Gin

After what has felt like an absolute age, I've finally got this parenting malarkey nailed enough to be able to get back into my writing again.  Don't get me wrong, although I may have been on something of a writing hiatus, that is where the abstinence ends and since Baby Button has made his appearance… Continue reading Cantium Gin

Norfolk Gin

A couple of weeks ago I heard from a lovely lady called Hannah from Plain Speaking Agency, she contacted me on behalf of Norfolk Gin, asking if I would like to sample their gin.  They have just launched their new 10cl mini decanter, which in my opinion is a great size to buy if you're… Continue reading Norfolk Gin
