This month’s box is one of their best yet and is packed full of interesting and exciting products. Here’s everything that I found inside:-
Naud Gin (70cl / 44% vol)
Specially imported into the UK from France just for Craft Gin Club subscribers, Naud Gin is an extra special gin as it’s been five generations in the making – a true labour of love! Distilled in Cognac, France, Naud represents everything that I love about France; the luxury style, the high standards and of course, their excellent taste in drinks.
This gin in rich in several botanicals such as Juniper, Clove, Orris Root, Orange Bergamot, Cinnamon, Coriander, Angelica, Green Cardamom, Almond, Cubeb Pepper and Nutmeg. It’s no surprise then that when you taste this gin, you first pick up on those fruity notes with hints of Lime and then this citrusy aroma is translated to the palate. It’s fruity, spicy and very, very good!
In this month’s Ginned! magazine, you’ll discover how to make the perfect G&T with Naud Gin, and you can also try garnishes such as Lime slices, Thyme flowers and seasonal herbs such as Rosemary to add those all important finishing touches. Tres Magnifique!
Mixers and Drinks: Merchant’s Heart Hibiscus and Classic Tonic Waters, and Harry Brompton’s Alcoholic Ice Tea
February’s box includes three bottles which can all be used as mixers to try with the Naud Gin. There are two Tonic Waters from Merchant’s Heart (a brand that I really love – these are fantastic premium tonics); Hibiscus and their Classic Tonic Water. I enjoyed both having tried the Classic one before, and the Hibiscus is a wonderful new discovery for me – I’ll definitely be repurchasing it
A drink that you can enjoy on its own or with a splash of gin is Harry Brompton’s Alcoholic Ice Tea which is bursting full of Berries, Peach, Citrus and Cucumber flavours. I can imagine this being very popular come Summer time!
Finishing touches: Simply Rose Syrup and Dried Rose Petals
It wouldn’t be a Valentine’s Day box without some roses, and Craft Gin Club have included two floral delights that you can use as the finishing touches to your G&Ts this month. There’s a bottle of Simply Rose Syrup to add a subtle sweetness to your cocktails, and a pouch of Dried Rose Petals to make your drinks look Instagram-pretty.
Extra treats: Love Corn in Habanero Chilli and Smoked BBQ, and La Mere Poulard Beurre Biscuits
To complete the box, there are some additional treats to nibble on. Two bags of Love Corn in Habanero Chilli and Smoked BBQ – both of these are delicious and perfect for when you want something savoury to go with your drinks; and a box of La Mere Poulard Beurre Biscuits, famous French biscuits with a sweet and buttery, melt-in-your-mouth sensation. Yum!
