Easter Bank Holiday weekend is upon us and, if you’re lucky enough, there’s is no better place to be than in your garden enjoying the sunshine or in the comfort of your own home.
Sticking to social distancing rules can be difficult at the best of times, more so when the sun is out, and can lead to despondency. So what better way to relax than allowing yourself the indulgence of an ice-cold gin.
Getting as close to mother nature as we can and with an aim to make the most of the (promised) long hot weekend, here are a few top-rated tipples to lighten your spirits…
Gins to put a smile on your face
A delightful floral gin inspired by nature. If you’re looking for a light and flowery gin that’s easy to drink, this is the one for you. Best when poured over ice and paired with a diet tonic, Bloom is distilled in a traditional copper pot and blended with demineralised spring water to create a soulful summery sipper.
Ableforth’s Bathtub Gin
The term ‘bathtub’ appeared in the 1920s and refers to a home-brew method of distillation. Unsurprisingly, bathtub gins are stronger than most brands on supermarket shelves. This cask-aged gin is available on Amazon, is wonderfully spicy, rich and buttery, and requires nothing more than a healthy chunk of ice and a cold tonic.
Distilled in the Scottish Highlands, Caorunn infuses five locally foraged botanicals. This artisanal, small batch gin beautifully mixes the rugged charm of Speyside with the urban sophistication of modern Scotland. Crisp and dry, this wanderlust gin is an exciting, rural adventure in a bottle.
Stone’s Ginger Gin
Exactly what it says on the bottle! This contemporary gin is an incredible tipple with a cheeky, fiery kick. Pairing Stone’s Gin with ginger ale, a wedge of lime and, of course, a slice of fresh ginger is all you need to enjoy this spirit.
All gins can be found online for delivery at Amazon UK
