Welcome to this month’s I Love Gin box which is themed ‘The Spirit Of Malvern Box’, to celebrate August’s branded gin. As always, there are two mini bottles of artisan gin, plus two premium mixers to enjoy with them. This month, however, has a little bonus extra!
Shall we see what’s inside?
Malvern Dry Gin (50cl / 43% ABV)
Handcrafted in traditional alembic copper stills in rural Worcestershire, Malvern Dry Gin is produced in small batches and incporates Holywell Malvern Spring Water and the finest botanicals inspired by the famous Malvern Hills. This is a classic London Dry Gin with a strong Juniper led flavour, mixed with botanicals such as Bilberry, Mugwort, Lady’s Mantle and Bitter and Sweet Oranges.
Malvern Blush Gin (50cl / 43% ABV)
Described as a sophisticated blended gin that uses the Malvern Dry Gin as its base, this award-winning Blush variant has beautiful floral tones and a subtle earthiness that brings balance with a delicate natural sweetness. There are no artificial sweeteners here so all the flavour of the Rose Petals, Rose Water, Passion Flower, Passionfruit and Strawberries, really come into their own.
Caleño Light & Zesty (50cl / 0% ABV)
As a bonus extra this month, I Love Gin have included a mini bottle of Caleño Light & Zesty Tropical Non-Alcoholic Spirit for its subscribers to try out. This is a distilled tropical non-alcoholic spirit infused with juniper, citrus & spice botanicals, and inspired by the sun-drenched spirit of Colombia.
August’s mixers are both from the premium brand, Twelve Below. Here you can try their Classic Premium Tonic which works well with any type of gin, and the Pear & Cardamom Mixer that helps to add extra flavour to classic London dry gins. Best of all, these mixers are 12 calories or less per 100ml with no artificial sweeteners, and there’s a wide range to explore.
