All The Gin!

I have to admit I was a little late to the gin party…but all was saved about two years ago when I supped on my first very cold gin and tonic with lots of ice and a slice of lemon on a hot summer’s day (first gin since a teen- say no more). Since then I have become a little bit of a gin snob, choosing my tipple carefully and using only the best tonic water I can find. I also love it with a slice of lime now rather than lemon.

Gin is the drink of the moment, premium gin is sophisticated and oh so trendy.

Then I was sent a Gin Explorer box…you know those beauty boxes which you can have a monthly subscription to so you can try out new products, well this one is dedicated to gin! Yes, gin…how fun is that. I may have a squealed a little when the exciting box arrived, and squealed a little more when I opened it.

The goodies inside a Gin Explorer Box-

I was very tempted by the recipe suggestions but I really wanted to taste the gins in their simplest form, without drinking them neat or with water.  So, I kept it very simple serving the subtle fruity Pinkster with the recommended mint and raspberry garnish. The herbal Anno Kent Dry Gin went perfectly with the Peter Spanton cardamom tonic. All of the selection were sublime.
