This is our final gift guide for this years #ladylovesxmas16 and We’ve saved the best till last! LOL
It’s the BOOZE GUIDE and boy have we got a whopper for you! So big we’ve split it into two.
Gin, we’ve got plenty as that’s our tipple at LLHQ but we’ve also made sure to include something for everyone, even a sherry for your Nan! And, we’ve included a rather wonderful Non-alcoholic drink, which btw is also rather fabulous mixed with alcohol.
Let’s Start with…….
Gin Glorious Gin
Distilled with 13 fine botanicals hand sourced from around the world, including Macedonian juniper, English coriander seed and fresh citrus from historical trading routes once served by the famous Salcombe fruit schooners, Salcombe ‘Start Point’ Gin is exceptionally smooth with layers of complexity.
We love Slingsby Gin’s gorgeous dark blue bottle and presentation box. Using carefully selected 24 botanicals both locally and from across the globe. Using 17 locally-sourced botanicals supplied by Taylors of Harrogate and Rudding Park kitchen garden in Harrogate include: green and jasmine tea, severn sea rosemary, silver posie thyme, citrus thyme, garden thyme, rhubarb, sage, lovage, chervil, nettle to name just a few!
Again we love the bottle of this Rock & Rose Gin which is created using botanicals in the Winter Edition of spruce tips. The Winter Edition has been created with thoughts of bracing walks, roaring fires and dark nights in mind. The original Rock Rose elements have been scaled down to allow the delightful earthy and slightly citrusy notes from the spruce tips to shine through.
Distilled in a fishing village near Barcelona, Gin Mare smells and tastes like the essence of the Mediterranean. Produced by delicately macerating and independently distilling each botanical, Gin Mare smells of Mediterranean sea breezes. We love this special edition gift which comes in a presentation lantern that be enjoyed well after the gin has been enjoyed!
Bill’s Gin, is small batch distilled in England using a traditional copper pot method. This is a very vocal gin, with each note clearly defined and well balanced. It has a soft full mouthfeel, big juniper and bright citrus and a long lingering spicy finish. Like all Bill’s products the bottle is pretty fab to!
