World Gin Day Recipes

It is World Gin Day today (13th June, 2020) - could there be a better day? So, as part of these celebrations, we thought we would share with you 3 of our gin recipes, that usually people can only access when they receive one of our Gin Lovers Gift Sets.


Our Gin Lovers Seed Gift Set gift set allows the gin lover in your life to grow their own herbs, to make the most delicious gin creations, straight from the garden.   This gift set includes herb seeds needed to create the most delicious gin based drinks. To make sure you can get the most out of the herbs once they've grown, we've included a personalised booklet of gin recipes using your home grown produce! So here are 3 examples of the gin based recipes we recommend. We hope you enjoy!
