Win Gin from Greenalls for Christmas:
What is nicer when all the Christmas preparations are done than to sit down on Christmas Eve with the perfect Gin and Tonic? That’s why I was delighted when Greenall’s offered a bottle of their Original London Dry Gin for one lucky London-Unattached reader. Greenall’s has been distilled in one of the UK’s oldest gin distillery for over 250 years now.
Founded in 1761 by Thomas Dakin, the forefather of English gin and Greenall’s original master distiller, Greenall’s has been at the forefront of British gin for gin lovers through the centuries. It is still crafted in Warrington although the botanicals which make this gin so special come from around the World including wild Tuscan juniper, delicate Moroccan coriander, and zesty Spanish lemons.
The Greenall’s recipe remains a closely guarded secret, known only to the 7 master distillers who have crafted the gin for generations. One of those is the current Master Distiller. In 1996 Joanne Moore began working at Greenall’s as a quality manager and 10 years later was awarded the accolade of Master Distiller. This makes her one of the first female Gin Master Distillers in the World. Joanne has recently been selected as a member of The Gin Guild in recognition of her services to the Gin industry.
Greenall’s also sent me a selection of Cocktail recipes to try and I thought I’d share my personal favourite with you here. I’m in good company because Greenall’s French 75 is also the favourite of Master Distiller Joanne Moore.
If you’d like a chance to win a bottle of Greenall’s all you need to do is let me know in the comments below what your favourite gin-based cocktail is. Then, just follow through the rafflecopter as normal and keep your fingers crossed.
