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!
Johdi the Gintern has created this epic Gin Afternoon Tea using this month’s Beauty and the Beast box. Think Tiger Gin soaked sultanas and 6 O’clock Damson gin jam! “As soon I spotted the Damson Gin in this month’s box, I knew there would be a jam recipe. With the damson season ending, and access to a damson tree it was an obvious seasonal recipe!”
Westward farm is a proper family affair. Aiden and his wife Grace, and his parents Mike and Christine all chip in to help with all parts of the family business, which includes essential oils, toiletries, applejuice and cider, eggs, and more! They even rope their 2 children, Joss 7 and Thea 3, in to picking the gorse flowers! Our favourite product from Westward Farm though, is of course their Gin!
This month’s members selection is seaside in box, and I was super excited to make fritto misto with a Dà Mhìle gin mayonnaise. I love it when a gin lends itself to a savoury recipe and there was no better way to pair a seaweed gin than with seafood.
Gin School must be the best kind of school there is, right?! Burleighs 45 Gin School is set in the grounds of Bawdon Lodge Farm, Leicester, home to Burleighs Gin. The experience is an awesome day of all things gin; right from weighing your chosen botanicals, to producing gin in your own copper still, then sealing your finished bottle of gin by hand.
Stick your head through one of Ugly Betty’s portholes and you get a fragrant burst of juniper, coriander, orange and cinnamon. This bulbous copper pot still, complete with large chimney and heavy duty escape hatch, is reminiscent of an ancient time-machine or underwater sub. But Ugly Betty’s mission is to produce large quantities of gin.
William’s Gin is the product of the evolution of great British produce, potatoes! It is the 3rd invention of the gourmand William Chase and, as EVERYONE loves the previous two, we are sure that GB Extra Dry Gin and Elegant 48 Gin will delight the most demanding palates.
Founded by the two brothers Andy and Martin Dawson in 1998, Broker’s is an exceptional gin and just like the British humour, it is delightfully dry. The very well balanced recipe is 200 years old and, despite the various attempts to modernize it, it cannot possibly be improved…
