I Love Gin
Don’t we all?!
The gin trend is still going strong at the moment and I am absolutely here for it. I am actually loving trying new flavours even more at the moment; it’s quite rare now that I would opt for one of the standard gins I know over something new. There are just so many that it’s hard to resist!
Here to help me with my gin fuelled experiment is I Love Gin. They are a gin subscription box delivering a tasting box full of goodies right to your doorstep each month. Each box contains 2 miniature gins and 2 tonics/mixers (to make 4 gins), a recipe card with tasting notes and serving suggestions, and a £5 voucher to spend on gin.
In my most recent box I received two Gordon’s ultra low alcohol drinks. Not usually something I would go for myself but definitely worth a try; they are perfect for the designated driver or non-drinkers. I have too say they actually taste really nice too. The grapefruit was my favourite but both were super light and refreshing.
The gins I received were the Strawberry Pin Gin and the Brecon Special Reserve. No surprise here that I loved both! The Pin Gin was probably my fave of the two (if I had to choose). This was mainly because it wasn’t too sweet; I’ve tried other flavoured gins where the main flavour is quite overwhelming and overpowers the drink. This has a very subtle flavour and works really well with tonic and a garnish of strawberry.
The Brecon Special Reserve was also delicious.. in fact maybe I’ll change my mind to this being the favourite! I served as recommended with a premium tonic and a simple lemon garnish and it was perfect. Very light, but with some delicious flavours that come through including cinnamon, citrus and nutmeg.
I’m sure it’s no surprise to you that I love the I Love Gin subscription box. I’ve been sent a couple now and have enjoyed every single item. This is the ideal way to try new and different gins on the market without having to invest in a full bottle each time.
The membership is just £14 a month but also includes the £5 gift voucher each time to spend on your fave gins so it’s pretty much the same as the subscription being £9 if you use the voucher! There are also member perks including free gifts, flash sales, competitions, extra discounts, and more. You can also pause or cancel your membership at any time; so it really works around your preferences.
I’d definitely recommend giving this a go, or even treating the gin lover in your life to a membership treat as a birthday gift or for a special occasion.
