Win Gin to celebrate World Gin Day
Did you know that 12th June this year is World Gin Day? A global celebration of all things gin, World Gin Day is always held on the second Saturday in June. Created in 2009, it’s one day of the year when you need absolutely no excuse to indulge in a glass or two of gin, whether in a cocktail or a Gin and Tonic.
We celebrate World Gin Day every year and this time, we are lucky enough to have three stunning bottles of gin to giveaway for one lucky London-Unattached reader. They are all bottles that we’ve reviewed and loved.
We used the beautiful Aviation Gin from the USA to make an Aviation cocktail. Owned by Hollywood actor and producer Ryan Reynolds, it has been voted the world’s highest rated-gin and is particularly notable for a soft, smooth style with classic juniper notes in the background complemented by citrus and floral notes. That makes it perfect for a balanced cocktail – although we also rather like it in a G&T…
Jaisalmer is a small batch artisan gin from India, the first from Radico Khaitan, and named after the historic city. Its flavours and aromas evoke the heady imperial age of the Maharajas and Maharanis. It is produced using traditional copper pot stills at a distillery at the foothills of the Himalayas which offers a consistent climate and pure mountain water perfect for gin production. Eleven botanicals are used in creating the gin, of which seven come from within India, including coriander and vetiver, the zest of orange and lemon peel, cubeb pepper berries, Darjeeling green tea leaves and lemongrass. It has a very evident orange zest, with a gentle lingering heat from the cubeb pepper and a smooth liquorice note. We loved this in a traditional gin and tonic and also used it to make a few spiced Indian gin cocktails which would pair perfectly with Indian food.
Cotswold Gin is our most recent review – so new that we haven’t published it yet! But we can promise that you’ll love this non-chill filtered Dry Gin that serves with a pearlescent cloud that appears when it’s used to make a G&T. We’ve been experimenting with a recipe for an apple and gin mojito and thought it would make the perfect summer serve. As for the cloudy G&T – well, that’s for all year round of course!
Which one would you like to try most? And, how would you serve it?
For your chance to win all three, you just need to fill in the rafflecopter, answering the mandatory question.
And, keep your fingers crossed!
