🔹 Swiss 82 🔹
I’m still not done unpacking but Friday night is nothing but Gin night! Time to mix two of my favorite elements, Goldberg tonic and my local Swiss gin; Swiss 82. Happy weekend to you all, and cheers! 🔹🍸 @brauereifalken @goldbergsodas
It’s cocktail time in the “vegetable” garden as summer comes in an end. The cucumbers 🥒 have ran their course. The Honeycrisp apples 🍎 are delicious but I do need to address the pest problem for next season. 😳. The Green Zebra, Yellow Pear Grape and Giant Belgian tomatoes 🍅 are plentiful (and very tasty). The peppers 🌶 are hot (maybe a little too hot!). And the new rose bushes are flourishing. That’s Firefighter, Miss Congeniality and ✌🏻🌹posing. @koidude79 and I have struggled with this garden over the years but 2017 was a good year! Cheers 🥂! 👨🌾🌻🌳🌞 #mygarden2017#vegetablegarden#ginandtonic#twojamesspirits#thebotonistgin#nature#life#happy
The Gin To My Tonic were in Belfast sampling the gin delights of Northern Ireland this week– amongst those was Jawbox!
The name Jawbox is named in honour of one of Belfast’s lasting legacies, the Belfast sink, a.k.a. the Jawbox. It’s a proud and uncompromising gin in every way, focusing on technique, process and hard work in order to achieve quality results. You will notice on the label that this is a single estate gin, and this is where those attributes really kick in. To start the gin creator (Gerry White) and his team at Jawbox grow their own grain, harvest their own crop, create their own alcohol and of course distil their own gin in order to create the lovely looking gin pictured before us. Production of Jawbox could easily be increased by adopting different methods, but in a world where everything is needed tomorrow (or worse yesterday) it’s impressive to see such strong values, whilst paying homage to Belfast’s industrial era.
We have to say this was an easy gin to enjoy, peppery juniper, fragrant citrus and angelica, and a spicy undertone. The original Belfast serve is with ginger ale, garnished with honeycomb and lime. Just to clarify you did read that correctly – HONEYCOMB! We had to ask ourselves when drinking this "is this what heaven in a glass tastes like?”. It’s completely indulgent, moorishly sweet, yet full of flavour. There’s no denying that Jawbox shines brightly and drives the flavours forward thanks to its fabulous botanical blend. Botanicals include Juniper Berries, Coriander Seed, Cassia Quills, Angelica Root, Black Mountain Heather, Lemon Peel, Cardamon, Liquorice Root, Grains of Paradise, Orris Root and Cubebs.
Belfast has many achievements, including inventing ginger ale apparently, which only makes us love this gin and serve more. Belfast is entwined into every aspect of this gin, celebrating its history, hard graft and craft, and delivering it in a relatable yet totally desirable way that should have appeal to the masses. @jawboxgin @fevertree_uk #thegintomytonic#jawboxgin#belfast#northernireland#cheers#photooftheday#alcohol#happyhour#cocktailhour#drinkoftheday#instagin#instadrink
We’re interrupting our usual gin fuelled news to let you know that it is in fact #elephantawarenessday .
We aren’t just aware of elephants, we are admirers. 🐘
Did you know - elephants follow the oldest female in their group? She has the best memory & remembers where to find safety & food.

We have been majorly slacking with the experiments... apologies! I'll be back tomorrow with some new grapefruit-cello goodness. Until then, still enjoying a Chamomile Collins from my chamomile gin batch 🙌
Who's going to be enjoying some gin this weekend? 🍸👍🏻
Our "you're the gin to my tonic" candle smells just like a freshly poured G&T!
Take advance of free shipping until Saturday, just enter the code FRIYAY at the checkout!!!
It's #Friday !! 😁 ...what better than a drop of #Gin to get things moving in the right direction and so it's with that new old friend #thomasdakin whom incidentally will also be accompanying me in the customary wedding hip flask tomorrow 😁😉 #fkit 😁
For those who have not yet had the pleasure of this #Gin ...it's unique, makes a great #GinAndTonic and there's nothing classic or standard about this one...maybe it's the liquorice and horseradish that gives it that flavour and feel.
🤔😚 Recommended 👍};-)
