Tipple my fancy

My fancy pants brother who got me onto Hendricks and Tonic bought down with him his new favourite gin last weekend. He discovered it here – it’s full of lovely olive, rosemary, thyme and basil flavours and I’m happy to report that it is now my favourite gin.

Served neat, on ice, with a few sicilian olives, I’m telling you this is the boss.

    looks like a cool bottle
    I’m the kind of person who buys things just for the cool bottle!

    I do like my gin with lemon squash tho.

    Have an awesome time this weekend

    Blogging is a funny thing. For instance, it was your original post on Hendricks Gin that got us onto it. Now again; your fancy pants brother (and occasionally award winning tantrum throwing kids)have me wanting to try this baby. Such a civilised drink the g&t. A mid-century stalwart no less.
