As much as we love drinking gin, there comes a time when we want to be a little different with it and that’s when we decide that the only sensible choice is to start baking with it! That’s when a friendly gin baker comes into his element. We sent him over our spirit of Cornwall box which includes two Tarquin’s gins and left him to his magic and he came up with this delicious recipe!
Ever get that feeling that you need to detox…but that you don’t want to do a ‘full detox’? Well we’ve got the perfect solution for you and it’s aptly named ‘gin & juice’ and it combines two great things, a nice freshly squeezed/blended green juice and of course gin!
UPDATE: 20th April 2017 – We’ve selected our final 8! See below for who’s coming to London for the final round!
As you probably already know, last year we started the hunt for a “Gintern” to help us track down exciting new gins and mixers to feature in our monthly members boxes. We knew it was a great job and would attract some attention, but we were blown away by receiving over 5000 applications! We had around 500 potential ginterns progress through to round 1, the social media Gin review round, and narrowed those down to our top 32 for round 2, the video application!
Well the videos are in, and again we’ve been blown away by the creativity and sheer amount of effort put in to tell us why they’re our perfect candidate. So now we’d like to introduce our shortlist of the best candidates we’re considering for our final round of tasks and interviews in London (including a visit to a distillery, lots of gin tasting, and more!)
Find our more about the Ginternship here, and read on below to see the video applications from the best of the best!
Founded by the two brothers Andy and Martin Dawson in 1998, Broker’s is an exceptional gin and just like the British humour, it is delightfully dry. The very well balanced recipe is 200 years old and, despite the various attempts to modernize it, it cannot possibly be improved…
A sense of beauty and playful imagination or – as the Japanese would call it – “Bikan Yuso”, is the secret ingredient that makes Merchant’s Heart sprit enhancers outstanding. They are the product of scientific research and master mixology – every flavour in the collection is designed to perfectly complement a particular spirit, and elevate drinking and drink-making to a whole new level of enjoyment.
Kokoro is an exceptional British London Dry Gin with a Japanese heart, where the spirit of the forest lies. The ingredient that makes this gin recognisable and incredibly enjoyable comes all the way from the Afan woods in the land of rising sun! Its story is one of love and respect for something that we too often take for granted, the environment we live in and what it has to offer.
The love for gin has really grown in the last few years, but no matter if you’ve loved it for twenty years or you’ve only recently got into it, you’ll love this little treat of a recipe. We stumbled across this wonderful Gin & Tonic marshmallow recipe the other week and realised it sounds like something we know any gin lover would want to know about it.
What if we told you that you could drink gin and help change the world? I know, it sounds a bit farfetched but you can certainly help when you buy certain gins and the newly launched One Gin is one of them.
The time has finally come in which you’ll be able to sip on the perfect gin, made by you, from scratch! Gin producers around the UK are organising distilling classes open to anyone who thinks that the most delicious gin has yet to be invented. The game plan is similar in most places: the experience starts with a G&T and a distillery tour, you’ll then sit with an expert who’ll teach you about distillation and the favours of botanicals before having a go at making your own gin!
Well well well, when you’d thought you’d seen it all, the great folks over at Prestat surprise us once again with this delicious sounding Gin & Tonic easter egg!
Prestat, who are a UK based chocolate company (famously known for making Gin & Tonic baubles at Christmas!) have stepped up their game once again to create this little treat in perfect time for Easter coming up!
