I Love Gin – June 2018: The Tailored Tastes Box

I Love Gin – June 2018: The Tailored Tastes Box

The popularity of Gin continues to grow, and if like me, you’re interested in trying out all of these new gins that keep appearing on the market, I Love Gin will be the perfect subscription box for you!

Delivered monthly, you’ll receive two different mini bottles of artisan gin and two bottles of premium tonics/mixers, so that you can enjoy making up to four G&Ts for yourself and your friends in the comfort of your own home. Don’t worry about breakages, as the bottles are protected en route with lots of sponge cushioning and a sturdy cardboard box, so all you need to do is cut up some lemons, grab some ice cubes and enjoy :)

June’s I Love Gin box is themed The Tailored Tastes Box and it contains:-

  • Liverpool Organic Gin (50ml)
  • Greenall’s Wild Berry Gin (50ml)
  • Inginius Classic Tailored Tonic Water (200ml)
  • Inginius Citrus Sweet Tailored Tonic Water (200ml)

As always, I was very excited to try out the Gins!

Greenall’s Wild Berry Gin (37.5%)

The inspiration for Greenall’s Wild Berry Gin comes from the plentiful blackberries that grow in the hedgerows throughout the English countryside and once you taste the gin, you can be easily transported to a luscious green space within seconds. Blackberries and Raspberries are infused in Greenall’s award-winning Original London Gin, so you really do get the best of both worlds – all of those fruity notes with a rich blend of botanicals which are added to 100% British wheat spirit and water that is sourced from the foothills of the local Cheshire Plains. A beautiful fruity gin to try for the Summer.

Liverpool Organic Gin (43%)

I thoroughly enjoyed the Liverpool Rose Petal Gin which was in last month’s box (read my review here), so I was very pleased to see a bottle of the artisan’s classic Organic Gin in June’s box. Produced in limited numbered batches at a small site in Kirkdale, this gin is a premium organic gin which is made using only certified organic botanicals, which produces a highly distinctive and aromatic drink. It has an intense Juniper flavour, but this is well balanced with bright, citrus notes – in fact, it’s one of my favourite Northern gins!

The tonics in June’s box are both from Inginius who I haven’t heard of before. They are made in small batches using on the finest natural ingredients, which are carefully blended and steeped by hand. Developed in collaboration with John Gordons, the celebrated cocktail and gin bar in Cheltenham, these tonic waters are specially designed to complement the more refined and delicate flavours from small-distillery and craft gins.

The Classic Tailored Tonic is the perfect match for dry gins, whilst the Citrus Sweet Tailored Tonic is better suited to sweeter gins. I paired these accordingly and made some incredible G&Ts!

Our score: 9.8/ 10

I'm never disappointed with the selection from I Love Gin and June's box is a corker!
