New Review “Policy”

Ok so I'm mid review and just waiting on the additional details coming back to me and figured I'd put forth my updated review "policy". Essentially up to this point I had been treating all reviews equally which, in all honesty, is a little unfair.  Brands that kindly sent me their gins for the purposes... Continue Reading →

My Gin Shelf

I've often been asked what other gins I have that I don't regularly feature, review or photograph so, in order to answer that question, I wrote up the contents of my gin shelf... To be fair I often wonder what other gins the people I follow on social media have aswell and do quite like... Continue Reading →

Taking a Moment

This might seem a bit odd...  Especially for a blog about gin and beer but I want you to bear with me. I sometimes feel that we move fast...  Too fast.  We often don't stop to think, or feel or even really realise what's going on half the time.  We struggle through things and we... Continue Reading →

Q&A With Brentingby Bruce

Photo credit Sean Graham So... A couple of weeks ago I spoke with Brentingby Bruce (henceforth referred to as "Bruce") and mentioned to him I was going to review his gin and asked him if I could email him some questions to clarify a few points. Of course he said that this was not a... Continue Reading →

You know that way you take up gin drinking, right? Then about a year later you join social media and start posting about gin? And you know that way certain things stick out when you're scrolling through your timelines and really catch you eye? Well... That's Brentingby. I flirted outRAGEOUSLY with Brentingby on social media...... Continue Reading →

I'm sitting in my garden on this, the last day of my three weeks annual leave from work.  It's a stunningly beautiful, warm day - provided the sun stays out.  I'm typing this up because I got bored waiting for the other half to build the fire (badly and with little success at this point,...

Four Pillars Spiced Negroni Review

So...  It's been a while...  How've you been?  You're looking well. I know what you're thinking...  The internet and blogging world has seemed a little emptier of late...  Unfortunately life got in the way and I wasn't able to devote any time to fire up some of my quality musings. I'm kicking off my reviews... Continue Reading →

Pre-Mixed G&Ts… Bin Or Buy?

If you bounce on a train on a Saturday after 11am you see loads of folk sat drinking from various cans and bottles.  In the last year or so I've noticed that, among the beers and ciders...  and Buckfast (because Scotland)...  there has been an increase in the amount of people consuming gin and tonic...

Defiance Premium Gin Review

I chat to a good few gin makers these days and I'm adoring the interactions I'm having with them.  You don't get love or passion just picking up a gin from a supermarket, website or in a bar.  But when you talk to these guys and girls you can really get the love they have... Continue Reading →

AVVA Scottish Gin Review

So a wee while back I fired up a post on the Twitters about tonic recommendations and these guys made a suggestion... We then got to chatting... And the rest is, as they say, history. I'm trying really hard to put a lot of focus onto the Scottish gin industry given my International Scottish Gin... Continue Reading →
