The Boxer has been fighting its way to the top of the craft gin market since 2014 with a secret weapon. This not-so-classic dry gin gets its vibrant and complex taste from the marriage of Himalayan and Bulgarian juniper, lots of carefully sourced botanicals, and British wheat.
A new year calls for some new ginspiration and we couldn’t help but fall in love with this recipe for a Grapefruit and Thyme G&T that we spotted on laurens blog, not only do the photos look incredible we tried it out and it tastes great too!
So we say this is a must make this year, when you’re next at the shops make sure you pick up a grapefruit and some thyme leaves (fresh ones) and you’ll be able to make this at home whenever you fancy a little treat!
So we love gin (obviously) and we also love chocolate, so when we saw these Gin & Tonic truffles that you can make at home we knew you’d love them too!
They’re pretty simple and easy to make and taste delicious!
You’ll need the following:
- 200g Dark Chocolate – 2 tbsp Double Cream – 2 tbsp Gin – 1 tbsp Tonic – 1/2 Lime Juice & 1/2 Lime Zest – 50g Butter & some White Chocolate
Do of course take the below with a pinch of salt! We are not medical professionals, and the article is intended as entertainment only.
With Dry January being mentioned all over the place we thought we’d give you 8 reasons why DryGinuary (where you spend the month celebrating Gin!) might just be better for you. I’m sure we’ve all read that a small glass of red might be good for you, so now lets see what our favourite friend Gin has to offer!
1. Drinking gin may help stop wrinkles & reduces ageing!
Juniper berries have high levels of antioxidants, which can help you stay healthy, fight wrinkles and keep you looking youthful. We can’t promise drinking gin will directly lead to this but the juniper berry is a powerful little thing that can also help cell regeneration and also reduce inflammation. (source)

Here is a collection of the best recipes for all tastes – hot, juicy, classic you name it.
If 3/4 of your G&T is tonic, you’d better make sure it is good tonic. And if 60% of your gin is water, you’d better get the purest there is. Martin Miller travels all the way to Iceland to get his. Could this be why this gin won more top medals than any other in the past 10 years? Nah, there’s more to it…
