Back from the lake!! From the savage, brigand pirate bay of rum, beer and wine...to the more polite and elegant confines of a proper gin martini done in the Duke's London style!

Cheers, my dears!!

Hi Mother's Ruin Group

How are you?

I was wondering, is anyone stay-cationing this year? I am! My husband and I have been working upgrading the garden, replacing our patio area with raised wooden pallets, creating a private space with bamboo screening, etc. It's great as we have created a bit of a suntrap now, yay! It's not often that Scotland gets such lovely weather as we had today, so you've got to make the most of it!

I thought this blog post might help some of you who might be looking for ideas of Day Trips to enjoy. This is a guide to all the Scottish Gin Makers who are open to the public.

I really like Caorunn Gin and I've heard the tour is really good, but they don't exactly make it easy to book. The details are BURIED in their site, and the booking times change every day. I really really want to go to Crafty Distillery but I haven't had a chance yet. The favourite one I have been on is Persie distillery; they are a small business but they make people feel so so welcome.

Here's a link to the Guide, I hope you find it useful. Please let me know if you would like a PDF copy and I'll send one to you. Many thanks Jayne

All empty but is was fun drinking them all. The Kongsaard was definitely the stand out best gin i have ever had with the Warner Edwards honey bee gin also near the top of the list but the Hortus gin from Asda at Β£12 is a very nice drink and one of the best gin you can buy for under Β£20, highly recommend.

St George (california) with tonic; garnished with rosemary to draw out the pine notes of the gin.

Because unlike some people I might mention, I haven't run out of gin......

Well...still being out of gin (see my Malory Archer post) I had to let vodka stand in for gin in my martini this evening.

It does help me reflect on all the great things that good gin brings to the cocktail.
