Guess what? I’ve now got supplies of both my gins, inspired by my foraging books! Using wild ingredients, distilled with love and the expertise of @thegowergincompany, I’m hard pressed to think of a better way to thumb a nose at the lockdown and the filthy weather than to raise a delectable glass or two! It’s not cheap BUT it is made in very limited quantities using ingredients which I’ve gathered with my own (not very fair) hands. It’s £40 per 70cl bottle plus a fiver for postage and packing. However, for the duration of the lockdown in Wales I’m offering a a tenner off if you buy both bottles (postage stays the same).
Tasting notes? ‘Distilled Edition’ (the saucy pink one) has pineappleweed and hogweed seed, resulting in a fruity flavour with a delicate smokiness. ‘Chapter 2’ (the crystal clear London Dry one) uses dandelion, burdock and fennel, a classic combination with an unexpected tang of fresh sweetness.
Go on - let’s face it, we all deserve a treat! More stories
