What better way to start the weekend off than with an I Love Gin delivery?! Every month, you’ll receive two mini artisan bottles of gin, with two premium tonics/mixers to enjoy with them – this allows you to make up to four G&Ts at home so it’s brilliant value for money and a fun way to try something new!
This month’s box is themed The Nautical Box:-
HMS Spirits Dreadnought Gin (50cl / 57.5% vol)
Formed in 20216, HMS Spirits was created by a fellow gin lover who invested in a 35-litre copper still and spent all his time perfecting and testing out various recipes. The Dreadnought Gin is a Navy-strength gin at 57.5% vol and it’s carefully distilled in small batches to retain a slightly higher essential oil content. Despite its strength, it’s lovely and smooth!
HMS Sprits Elizabeth Gin (50cl / 42% vol)
The Elizabeth Gin by contrast is a delicate balance of traditional botanicals. Described as a classic London Dry Gin with a natural Elderflower distillate, the result is a juniper-led gin with light, flowery and honey-like tones and flavours with a crisp and fresh finish. Perfect for Spring and Summer.
Lixir Rhubarb & Ginger Tonic Water (200ml)
To balance out the strength of the Dreadnought Gin, this Lixir Rhubarb & Ginger Tonic Water is the ideal accompaniment as it’s low in Quinine compared to other classic tonics so you get a perfectly drier finish. The Rhubarb & Ginger add a little sweetness too.
Merchant’s Heart Hibiscus Tonic Water (200ml)
One of my favourite mixers, the Merchant’s Heart Hibiscus Tonic Water lends itself well to floral and citrusy gins so again, it’s the perfect match to include in this box for the Elizabeth Gin. It has a delicate fruity sweetness with a gentle Rose tint.
The Coconut Collaborative Chocolate Little Pots
As an extra bonus this month, I Love Gin have included these delicious Great Taste award-wining Chocolate Little Pots from The Coconut Collaborative – yum!
