May's Limited Edition Gin Box
We were collectively lucky enough to have the makers of Merywen Gin (it means juniper in Welsh) make us a special seasonal Spring gin that had sage, lavender and cherry blossom in the botanical mix. It came with mixers from Franklin and Sons, lavender liqueur and a small pot of honey which went into the Cocktail of the Month! There's still a few of these packages around ready to plug the gap until our subscription takes on it's new persona. Get one here: May's Box
For April's package Batch Distillery in Lancashire made us a divine limited edition gin which featured Kaffir lime leaf and lemongrass for an extra citrus hit. We paired this gin with East Imperial's Burma tonic water and sent it out with a bottle of East Imperial Soda water, a mini bottle of Angostura bitters and a bottle of Chilli and Ginger syrup which came in handy when making our cocktail of the month.
For March we had a beautiful seasonal spring gin from the master distillers at Manchester Gin. They created a floral and delicate 'Cherry Blossom and Jasmine' recipe that was paired with tonics and mixers from Double Dutch drinks and included a bottle of Japanese yuzushu liqueur.
February's gin subscription package
For our second ever release we teamed up with 58 Gin who distill their wares under the railway arches in Hackney. They came up with a delicious pepper led gin which had yellow grapefruit as a leading citrus botanical. The gin went out as part of a package with London Essence Co's Classic Tonic, Square Root's Bergamot Soda, a 50ml bottle of English made Cherry Brandy and a miniature bottle of Grenadine which came in handy for our 'Cocktail of the Month'. As always February's package went out with our newspaper 'One Time Press' with further information on everything in the box.
January's gin subscription delivery
For our first release we teamed up with Victory distillery next to Tower Bridge to make the First Gin of 2017, the guys were at the distillery on New Years Eve ready to get cracking the moment the clock struck 12 and didn't quit until it was bottled. We added some special botanicals to the usual Victory mix to make this an extra special edition too. We also filmed the whole thing, check out the video of some of the fun parts on our blog!
