Gin lovers! Have you heard about I Love Gin? This subscription box sends you incredible artisan gins and premium tonics every month for you to enjoy at home. Each box contains enough for you to make four G&Ts, so why not subscribe and treat yourself and your friends to a gin tasting session?
This month’s I Love Gin is themed the Springs & Waterfalls Box and features the following products:-
Slingsby Gooseberry Gin (50ml, 40%)
After the successful launch of Slingsby London Dry Gin back in 2015, the team began experimenting with different fruity flavours and released the Gooseberry Gin as a limited edition batch. Now a permanent member of Slingsby’s gin family due to popular demand, this Gooseberry Gin is crafted using Harrogate aquifer water, pure single grain spirit and locally sourced botanicals such as Primrose, Sweet Cicely, Nettle, Milk Thistle and Rosehip, most of which are sourced from the kitchen garden of the famous Rudding Park Hotel in Harrogate. All of these ingredients are expertly blended with Yorkshire Gooseberries for an unmistakable tangy sharpness and fruity sweetness – perfect for Summer!
Brecon Gin (50ml, 40%)
Featuring botanicals which are sourced from the four corners of the world and bottled at Penderyn Distillery using water from the Brecon Beacons National Park, Brecon Gin is described as a big traditional Juniper based gin with hints of spicy Coriander and Cinnamon. Once a mixer is added, it transforms to reveals fresh citrusy notes of Orange and Lemon, with underlying flavours of Nutmeg, Liquorice and Angelica. A beautiful classic gin to try.
To compliment your gins this month, there are three different types of mixers to discover:-
Regency Tonic Blue Water (200ml)
Founded in Sussex in 2016, this very dry, low sugar tonic water allows your gin to do all the talking and adds a supporting role to your G&T rather than overpowering it. This is a good one to try with classic gins such as the Brecon Gin above.
Raisthorpe Yorkshire Skinny Tonic (200ml)
A relative newbie on the mixer scene, Raisthorpe Manor has recently brought out a range of tonic waters which contain natural extracts of Quassia, Sicilian Lemon and locally sourced Yorkshire spring water.
Bottlegreen Elderflower Cordial (50ml)
As an added extra this month, there’s Bottlegreen Elderflower Cordial to add a lovely fresh touch of Summer to your G&Ts.
