Voted this months “Best Value Box”, ILoveGin has to be the best Gin experience on the market. Gin boxes have become very popular over the last few years, but none come with the group tasting experience that ILoveGin offer.
For only £14 a month, ILoveGin not only send you a beautiful box of Gin, but an easy way to discover new amazing flavours from all over the world.
Our box arrived a few days after placing our order in a lovely well-padded presentation box, with separate compartments for each bottle. Inside we found a bottle of Pickering’s original 1947 Gin matched with a bottle of Double Dutch Indian Tonic Water and a bottle of The English Company Cucumber Gin complimented by a bottle of Qcumber Tonic Water. Placed on top of the box we found a really informative Gin guide, with interesting facts about the gin contained in the box, serving suggestions to get the best experience from your gin and a place for you or your group of friends to write tasting notes.
Cucumber Gin & Tonic
First up on our tasting experience is The English Company Cucumber Gin and Qcumber Tonic Water. As per the serving suggestions, we chopped up a small amount of cucumber and added our gin followed by our tonic water. The smell was already getting us excited but tasted even better. This Gin has a rather sweet taste and a beautifully refreshing hint of cucumber. We proceeded to experiment with out tasting experience by adding an orange peel twist to our glass, simply slice off a strip of peel from a fresh orange, twist over the glass and place into your drink. The oils from the orange peel will fill the glass with an extra flavour that perfectly compliments the cucumber.
Pickering’s Gin & Tonic
After our amazing Cucumber Gin experience, we moved on to the Pickering’s Gin and Duble Dutch Tonic Water. We think this drink is best served in a wide short glass to promote the amazing ginger and spice notes coming from the Pickering’s Gin. With a full bodied, strong flavour it’s best served on its own, this Gin produces some amazing aromas and we are sure it will get your taste buds wanting more.
Winning multiple awards over the 150 years, Pickering’s create some of the most unique tasting gins on the market today. Better still once you find a Gin you really enjoy you can reorder your gin in a full-size bottle directly from the ILoveGin website.
Overall, we could not be happier with our ILoveGin subscription box and it makes a perfect after dinner party experience for all your friends to get involved with. The perfect box for any gin-a-holic.
