Calling all gin fans – do you fancy receiving a box of artisan gin and premium tonics to enjoy every month? I Love Gin is the box for you! Each monthly box will contain two mini bottles of artisan gin, plus two bottles of premium tonics to go with them which is enough to make up to four G&Ts.
This month’s box is themed The Surrey Stories and contains the following:-
Copperfield London Dry Gin Volume One (50cl / 45% vol)
Launched in 2018 by a husband and wife Doctor and Professor couple, the Surrey Copper Distillery has been created using a recipe which is based on one by Ambrose Copper back in 1751. Hand-bottled and hand-labelled, these gins have a distinctive book-shaped bottle which is inspired by the Dickens; classic novel The Copperfield. Volume One uses the 1751 recipe as its base with ten carefully selected botanicals; juniper, angelica, orris root, liquorice, cubeb berries, lemon peel, elderflower, caraway, cardamom and coriander. It’s rich, lightly floral with woody spices, and a lovely round and smooth flavour overall.
Copperfield London Dry Gin Volume Two (50cl / 45% vol)
Volume Two is a delightful follow-up and features a juniper-led flavour which is exceptionally smooth. Fragrant floral notes and subtle hints of spices give it a lighter flavour and feeling to Volume One, and instead, this gin features several key botanicals which include pink peppercorns, cubeb berries, rose petals, hibiscus, elderflower and lavender. Perfect for Spring!
Lixir Refreshingly Light Tonic Water (200ml)
Ideal with either of this month’s featured gins, Lixir Refreshingly Light Tonic Water has no nasty artificial sweeteners and has slightly citrusy notes to add a little twist to a good old fashioned G&T.
Merchant’s Heart Pink Peppercorn Tonic Water (200ml)
Again, this mixer can be used with either gin, although I feel that the subtle Pink Peppercorn flavour works particularly well to bring out and enhance the Pink Peppercorns in the Volume Two gin. It has a rich bitterness of the quinine and those lovely soft fruity spicy notes of the Pink Peppercorns.
