Hrafn: Winter Gin 2019 Review

Sometimes you just click with folk…  There’s something about they way they chat to you and their general approach that you just get…  That’s how I feel about the wonderful gents from Hrafn. Not only are these two guys some of the nicest people I’ve come across in gin but they create some absolutely wonderful... Continue Reading →

The 12 Gins Of Christmas

So clearly I enjoy gin...  I don't think anyone is going to argue with that. Previously it was really just gin and tonic, right?  But these last twelve months have been something of a gin adventure for me.  I started dabbling in cocktails and "gin-based" drinks and have been really rather enjoying it. It all... Continue Reading →

Personalised Beer Label Review

I started with drinking gin...  Then I moved on to social media-ing about gin...  Writing about it...  I then dabbled with flavouring gin last year...  So, to me, it seems the... Continue Reading →

What is Scottish Gin?

So a while back (the start of the year... A veeeeeeery long time ago to be fair) I messaged a few folk on Twitter hunting for opinions on a couple of subjects... One question I posed to these lucky people was "What makes a Scottish Gin?"... I then realised that some folk forgot and RE-MESSAGED... Continue Reading →

GinFall Festival Review

So back in June/July last year I went to my first gin festival - the Social and Cocktail GinFall Festival. I was dabbling in Twitter and Instagram but didn't have a blog or anything. I think I posted my spoils of the day but other than that didn't make much mention of it... Even though... Continue Reading →
