Subscription shopping is one one the fastest growing sectors on the internet at the moment. From Beer to Socks, even Bacon has got in on the act to deliver a package once a week/month to your front door. When we noticed The Craft Gin Clubon an evening browsing on Facebook a couple of weeks ago, we just had to try them out. Gin is our go to choice of tipple on a Friday night after the successes and stresses of the working week.
Gin divides opinion, but in recent years distillers have thrown off the misconceptions of The Gin lane and the Aldi Granny Advert.(In the mid 17th Century, The Government allowed unlicensed Gin production and at the same time imposed a heavy duty of all imported spirits. This lead to mass increase in ‘Gin’ shops and was the drink of the poor).
As with the resurgence of craft beer, Gin’s time has come to make a comeback. Leading the way isThe Craft Gin Club, who source unique and wonderful Gin from old and new distillers from around the globe. Each month they source a fine small batch Gin and deliver it to your door with added treats and a magazine, which features the chosen distillery.
The Magazine is very informative, giving the distillers a showcase on how the gin is created and what chosen botanical’s have been used to create the featured Gin which this month was The Sabre, a Nautical themed Gin fromThe West Winds Distilleryin Western Australia. Of course there are a few cocktail recipes included to try and what mixers to use to compliment that months Gin.
This Months box contained two mixers, both of which were fromThe East Imperial. Having mostly used supermarket tonic waters, this certainly opened our taste buds to seek out different mixersfor our Friday night G & T.
