Cookery School at Little Portland Street is London’s leading teaching kitchen, so I was thrilled to have a place on the Pasta, Risotto & Gnocchi course held there. I love cooking all things … [Read More...]
Calling all gin lovers! Do you want to try new, unique and even exclusive gins? Do you want to learn more about gin? Do you LOVE a good gin and tonic? Then look no further… the Craft Gin Club is here!
So I think this is perhaps the most excited I have ever been to do a review! It’s been about a year now since I discovered my love for gin and since my first sip I’ve made it my mission to try as many new gins, tonics and garnishes as possible. From visiting The Gin Festival, to simply picking up a new gin every now and then I’ve become my family’s go to source for new, unique gins to try.
If like me you want to try new gins then the Craft Gin Club could be perfect for you!
Every month, The Craft Gin Club select one of the world’s finest small-batch gins, including rare and exclusive bottlings not available elsewhere, and send it to our members in a treat-filled Gin of the Month box.
The exact contents of each box is a surprise until it arrives (which is a really nice pick me up each time) but always includes a full-size bottle of very special gin, a selection of tonics, mixers and foodie treats, and a 28-page club magazine.
What did I think?
When my May box arrived I was immediately excited and dove right in at my work desk to see what tipple I had been sent. (I promise you, I’m not an alcoholic, I was just looking!)
May was all about Italy! The box contained full sized bottles of both Occitan gin by Bordiga and Bordiga’s Bianco Vermouth, along with a single serve can of Fever Tree Mediterranean Tonic (yay! My favourite) and some perfectly paired snacks/ garnishes to try. All of this was accompanied by a copy of Ginned! Magazine.
I love how each part of the box was thought about and paired to the starring gin and that the recipes in the magazine included the box contents too – it was great to try my first (lethal) Negroni!
If reading about your tipple, and how to better it, is of interest to you then the Craft Gin Club gives you a detailed insight into the distilling process and perfect pairings. Not to mention the gin was bloody good!
I loved my taste of The Craft Gin Club so much that I have now signed myself up for a bi-monthly box. (I’m only little, a bottle a month would perhaps be a bit too much!) Priced at £40 each box and available in monthly, bi-monthly or quarterly subscriptions I really think gin fans should consider signing up as the average bottle of gin costs anywhere between £20 and £40 anyway!
Im a fan, and a convert, and an undeniable lover of all things Gin!
