The gins and tonics in this months ‘Aromatic Autumn’ subscription box

Gin has taken over the world. Official. And with so many great varieties now available it would be quite difficult to get around to tasting them all. So, wouldn’t it be great to be able to sample a couple of different gins every single month via a very affordable subscription service? Welcome to I Love Gin.com. You’re welcome!

Yours truly enjoying a well deserved G&T. Well it’d be rude not to!

You can join the club for just £14 a month and in return, not only do you get 2 miniature bottles of gin and 2 mixers, to make 4 gin cocktails, but you also get a voucher for £5 off a bottle of gin, along with access to flash sales, free gifts, discount codes and competitions to enter. Seems like a no-brainer for any gin lover!

The Audemus Pink Pepper gin and the Fever-Tree aromatic tonic water

My first box was delivered this week. Perfectly packed and very welcome! Inside was the ‘Aromatic Autumn’ box containing 50ml bottles of Audemus Pink Pepper Gin and Aber Falls Welsh Dry Gin, along with 2 200ml bottles of tonic water from Fever-Tree. 1 aromatic and 1 Elderflower. Lets make cocktails!

I served my pink pepper gin and aromatic tonic in chilled balloon glass with a slice of grapefruit peel

The Pink Peper Gin is a bolder gin with spicy notes which are balanced with honey, tonka bean and vanilla, plus 6 other botanicals including cardamom and of course pink peppercorns. Made in France it’s a little different from other gins as it’s not too heavy on Juniper, making it less dry and a little more aromatic.  I used the Aromatic tonic water as suggested in the recipe booklet (which by the way comes with your monthly kit)

Simple to prepare and easy to drink. Cheers!

While this can make you 2 small G&T’s I decided one large one was in order (well it was a Saturday)  Choosing a traditional stemmed bowl glass I cooled the glass with ice before pouring in the gin and tonic water and adding a large slice of grapefruit peel. It makes for a sweeter and deeper G&T to what I’m used too but it was incredibly nice. The pink colour coupled with the yellow grapefruit makes it a more feminine drink, but it was very welcome nonetheless.

Time to sample the Aber Falls dry welsh gin and the Elderflower tonic water

Next on the menu was the Aber Falls Gin and the Elderflower tonic water. Mixed together, and lifted with a wedge of lime and a sprig of mint, this was a much fresher drink than the pink pepper gin. Very crisp and dry, it was more like the gins that I am used too. While the Elderflower tonic is made sweeter and slightly floral by the oils from the Elderflowers, it wasn’t potent enough to make it taste floral. The flavour was very subtle and added a nice dimension.

So, if you’re a gin lover or someone making their first tentative steps into gin world, this is a really good option for you. It allows you to sample different mixers and flavours without committing you to a huge bottle. If there is a bottle that you just can’t live without, you can buy it directly from I Love Gin.com. Don’t forget to use the £5 voucher when you do though!

Happy drinking! Cheers!

    The title of this post made me laugh Craig. Have you tried Tiger Gin yet? I was gifted a mini or “mickey” (as they are sometimes called where I’m from) of it a while back and its really nice. Now if there is a Rum of the Month club, I’ll join!
