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 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 😉
Originally Dutch but born in the UK, Double Dutch tonic is the result of the love for superlative drinks and excellent concoctions. We love their whole range, and think their Spices & Oakwood Limited Edition tonic is must-try!
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.
Upcoming Gin Events You Should Attend
The recent resurgence in the popularity of gin has brought this noble and wonderful drink back to the fore. A wealth of small and dedicated craft gin makers are the inspiration behind the many gin festivals that take place throughout the country, but is there one near you?
When we started to look we found there are many gin festivals in different parts of the UK, each offering a fantastic selection in some great venues, so here’s our list of some to look out for, complete with dates and locations.
The famously lavish car show, Goodwood Revival, is well known to be an affair of quality and class, and they made no exception when choosing Swiss brand nginious! to be their gin partner.
ILoveGin was lucky enough to visit the nginious! team’s pop up bar at the Goodwood Revial Show this September and gin fans … we were seriously impressed.

Gin is not just a drink, it’s a culture. In an era where binge culture, and having everything now-now-now, negates from the notion of sitting back, in good company, in the perfect setting and enjoying a fine drink. Now we are not going on a hipster millennial rant before you decide to navigate away, don’t worry, we are not becoming that annoying “craft beer *wearing lumberjack shirt*) guy. No, we are simply tipping our hat to all your gin lovers out there, those who enjoy an elaborate gin concoction, all the way to the purists who accept nothing else but a simple pour over ice and maybe with tonic. This article is to celebrate you and the wonderful gin culture which brings people together, whatever the season, a reason to be happy, a reason to raise a glass and cheers to good health. From here in London all the way to our friends in Tokyo and beyond, every country has a signature pour and everyone who loves gin has an idea about how it should be served.
