I was introduced to gin around 20 years ago by the original and best Gin Queen, B, my mother-in-law.
A G&T was often placed into my hand as I stepped over her threshold. Gordon’s, Schweppes tonic (invariably just shown the glass), ice and a slice of lime. We’d sit, sip and put the world to rights.
My tastes have broadened with the advent of the new age of gin. New botanicals, new brands, craft gins and revival gins are now available and for a Gin Queen like me, it’s heaven.
This website has grown out of my love for the juniper juice and my desire to share the gin love with everyone.
I’m not an expert, but I’ll gladly point you in the direction of the right distillers and mixologists. I’ll be tasting, reviewing and sharing the recipes I come across.
These are my thoughts on gin, but I’d love to hear yours, so leave a (nice) comment if you like.
