turbo gin and tonic

If You’ve Not Tried a Turbo Gin & Tonic You Need To Now

Sometimes all it takes is combining two things you love to make something new and exciting. This is the case with a turbo G&T, which combines gin with coffee, specifically cold brew coffee. It’s surprising that these two great things have never crossed paths properly before until now!

Maybe they were just happy to do their own things, whether it was coffee, being there for those early starts, to give you a little energy and then resting itself in the evening whereas gin has always been there in the evenings, waiting for you after a long night. Luckily for us someone decided to put these two things together with some tonic and created what is now known as a Turbo Gin & Tonic!

The Human Touch in Tarquin’s Gin

Because we have been drinking a lot of Gin lately, mass-production and the consequent standardisation of flavours has become the norm to satisfy our thirst for this juniper based spirit. Tarquin has brought back the beauty of craftsmanship and we are VERY grateful for it! This gin is produced in tiny batches on the coast of north Cornwall and every batch has a slightly different flavour. Unbottling Tarquin’s gin is pretty much like opening a Kinder egg, you never know what surprise you are going to get but it never disappoints 😉

The Ultimate List of Gin Cocktails

The wonderful juniper spirit, if you hadn’t realised already we really love gin and so we’ve created the ultimate list of gin cocktails so you can find the best gin cocktails to make, try or dream about.

There’s something for everyone, from the gin lover who drinks gin whenever they can, to the other end of the scale to that person who says they ‘hate gin’, we’re pretty confident that if they try a few from this list we’ll have changed their mind on this superb spirit.

The qualities of this juniper based spirit mean that it can pair really well with a range of other flavours, from fruits such as grapefruit, to herbs and spices, meaning the possibilities of gin based cocktails are nearly endless. We’ve all had the struggle of searching online for a cocktail and come across hundreds of websites all with individual recipes, or lists of recipes which are simply uninspiring so we thought we’d make you the ultimate gin cocktail list with everything from a classic Bramble to a Strawberry, Basil & Pink Peppercorn Negroni. Chin chin! (or should that be Gin Gin!?)
