With the sun intermittently deciding to come out it’s hard to know whether ‘summer’ is really here. Regardless of that the weekend is almost here, Thursday is the new Friday after all, and there’s no better way to celebrate than with an alcoholic drink. I don’t drink that often, I’m not the kind of person who has a glass of wine (or two) with dinner but I am a spirit person. When I was younger I was always a vodka drinker as that was the standard going out drink but in the last few years, I’ve developed more of an attraction to other spirits, specifically gin.
For me gin is far more a summer drink as it’s soft and refreshing so when the team at ILoveGin asked if I wanted to try out one of their Gin and Tonic boxes* I wasn’t going to say no. Much like a beauty subscription box each month you receive a box with some new gin’s to try and the accompanying tonic’s to enjoy with them. I know I am very much a creature of a habit so a box like this is perfect for me as I can try gins’ I’ve never tried before without the worry of standing in the spirit isle of Tesco staring at bottles’ and finally settling on one because it’s on offer (We’ve all done it!)
The best thing is the boxes are only £14 which is a complete bargain as there’s enough for four G&T’s inside. I spend pretty much this amount on my Birchbox every month and sometimes end up a bit disappointed, but I know Gin would never do that to me! The box I received had two bottles of premium tonic alongside two small bottles of gin (one being sloe gin which I had never tried). I loved the in-box leaflet which gave information and guidance about the contents. The sun might not have been shining this week but gin has regained my faith in the summer.
