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 😉
In case you haven’t got your date sorted for Valentine’s day yet.. Here is a little help to make a fellow Gin lover fall in love with you. Blame the alcohol if these don’t work 😝

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…
Read this post and you won’t have a valid excuse to say no to a drink. Ever. Again.
Those of you lucky enough to be in the first 250 members from last month, I hope you enjoyed our first ever monthly G&T box!
