The English Drinks Company have unleashed quite the gift on us – a brand new Cucumber Gin! This exquisite gin is described as a ‘delicate and unique taste’, (English Drinks Company), and this is pretty accurate. The gin is perfectly infused with just the correct amount of cucumber it needs very little else by way of mixers.
If, like me, you are a gin lover, you have to try this. I had a friend over last night and we had a mini bottle to sample between us – such a chore! We both loved it and really enjoyed this new taste – gin and cucumber go very well together and ‘The English Drinks Company’ have this excellent combination bottled and readily available via the link at the bottom of the page.
This is the first gin I have ever tried with simply ice, it’s the definition of a perfect drink and no surprise that it has received the International Wine and Spirit Competition (IWSC) Silver Award 2016. The sweetness of the cucumber perfectly compliments the sharpness of the gin and softens it just enough to allow it to be enjoyed by those who drink gin and by those who prefer a ‘softer’ taste. I cannot recommend it enough and The English Drinks Company Cucumber Gin is on my shopping list for my next ‘girls night in’ party!
A full size bottle (70cl) is £35 and available from:
Dark Matter Spiced Rum is rather special. For starters, I am a huge fan of alcohol so any review concerning this substance is a pleasure. I would have downed quite a few glasses of Rum in ‘my day’, however, as you move from your 20’s into your 40’s you tend to sip slowly and savour so the alcohol content becomes less important and the taste more important. I have yet to taste a Rum I do not like and think – ‘Hmmm, I could have quite a few of these!!’ but Dark Matter Spiced Rum, as I have said, is different. This Rum is truly like no other Rum on the market.
I have been ‘eyeing up’ Choc on Choc for ages and every time I am near my local Lakeland shop I pop in to see if they have any new chocolate treats in store from this amazing company. The Christmas selection was superb as usual and I would have had difficulty selecting a favourite. From a little Igloo with chocolate penguins to a neat little carton of chocolate brussels sprouts, how could I possible choose? Now that Christmas has passed, they have even a ‘post Christmas’ chocolate range – how cute is this selection of ‘5-A-Day’ to get you in the mood for some healthy eating?
Christmas at the Stormont Hotel really is something to shout about! I had the most wonderful visit Sunday past to one of their Santa Sunday Buffet Dinners and wow! – this has been instigated as a family tradition from this year onwards – by both the kids and hubby!
