I have wanted to go on the Gin Journey in London for ages now, so I was extremely excited to get on board last week! The Gin Journey is a posh bar crawl round town with ALL the gin… you are taken on an educational gin-fuelled tour whilst experiencing some incredible cocktail bars. We ginned our way around London, but they have Leeds and Newcastle tours coming soon as well!
Inspired by Africa and handcrafted in England, Whitley Neill Gin combines an unusual bunch of botanicals, including the carefully selected, rare Cape Gooseberries and Baobob fruit. Its other more traditional botanicals such as juniper, coriander, lemon and orange peel result in a well-balanced, smooth gin.
I’ve literally fallen in love with Gordon’s Pink! Seriously surprised by its sweet berry notes and pink hue, I knew this gin would make a meringue masterpiece. Queue one pretty, pink pavlova! If you’re looking for a show-stopper recipe for over the festive season, this Gordon’s Pink Pavlova is it.
Move over coffee and walnut cake, it’s all about the espresso and pistachio bake! This month’s Peter Spanton Cardamom Tonic really lends itself to this recipe; balancing beautifully with the flavours in this gin and tonic espresso, cardamom and pistachio cake. A trio of absolutely delightful flavours, and topped with a Slingsby Gin mascarpone too, it’s indulgent and moreish.
250 years of distilling experience should be enough to launch a new exceptional range, right?
We have tried and tested them for you – these Gins won’t disappoint! The Gins we’re bringing to you this month are the product of the eighth generation Master Distiller Johnny Neill – the creator of the delicious Whitley Neill Gin!
