‘If 3/4 of your gin and tonic is tonic, make sure you use the best’.
Fever-Tree is one of the top tonic brands leading the way to produce high quality mixers for outstanding spirits. And that is exactly why ILoveGin loves Fever-Tree. They now have a whole new line of low calorie mixers called the ‘Refreshingly Light’ range…
Intensely aromatic, bold with spicy notes of pink peppercorns, Pink Pepper Gin has a beautiful balance of juniper with the warmth of honey, tonka and vanilla. Each batch of Pink Pepper Gin is dedicated to family members and good friends of the Audemus story. This gin is a true labour of love!
Aber Falls Distillery, the first of its kind in North Wales for more than 100 years, has added to its exceptional range of premium small-batch spirits with its latest launch of a Welsh Dry Gin. Made using local botanicals and Welsh water from the mountains around Aber Falls, you can’t get much fresher than that!

Ahoy there gin fans! Portobello Road have added a fabulous new addition to their ginventory – a whopping 57.1% Navy Strength gin!
The Navy Strength is a new and punchier expression of Portobello Road’s original 171 gin, staying true to its flavour profile and core botanicals. At the end of the distillation process, a taste of the sea is injected when a small amount of English sea salt is incorporated into the gin – a very nice nod to the history of this gin variation.
But where does the term ‘Navy Strength’ come from? Well thanks to a lesson by Ginstitute owner and Portobello Road mastermind Jake Burger … I can tell you!
A deliciously sticky ginger cake (GINger) had to be done with one of this month’s gins, Opihr! With ginger being one of the spicy botanicals featured in this wonderful gin, it works perfectly in this recipe. Topped with a yummy ginny, orange icing …. it won’t last long in your house!
Do you ever buy a gin because it’s packaged in a beautiful bottle?? Then you get home, decide to try some, find that it’s also DELICIOUS and before you know it it’s all gone… Story of my life!!
The last thing you want to do at this point is to throw the bottle away. So what to do with it? If you are a lazy hoarder like me you’d put it back on the gin shelf along with the full ones.
But there’s a better way to show it off and enjoy its looks, or 7…
