  1. Caroline,

    I recently discovered “The Gin Queen” and wish to congratulate you on a great website. As a fellow Gin lover I am interested in all Gin from around the world. It has been a real pleasure to follow the growth of the juniper spirit and particularly from within Australia (and New Zealand) – now there is a local aficionado too. I look forward to reading your posts with interest.

    Kind Regards, David Schofield.

    I love all things gin, and everything else to be honest!

    Nice to meet you
