Members had a holly jolly time this weekend, celebrating the coming of the Christmas season and cracking open their most recent gin delivery: Arbikie's brand new, incredible AK's Gin!
John, Iain and David Stirling grew up on the Arbikie Estate and turned it into a bona fide craft gin distilling centre. Their respect for hard work and deep love of the land came from their father, A.K. Stirling. This month's gin pay tribute to their father - and is one tasty drop, to boot!
Check out what makes this gin so spectacular below, and see how you can make its perfect G&T.
Arbikie AK’s Gin
A brand new release from the home of Scotland’s first single estate gin, which Craft Gin Club members are the first the world to try.
Distilled on the Arbikie Estate, just outside Angus, Scotland
Juniper, Coriander, Orris root, Thistle, Black Pepper, Black Cardamom, Orange Peel, Calamus Root, Mace, and Locally Sourced Honey.
With a certain buttery quality thanks to its wheat base spirit, this gin is a beautiful tribute to a beloved father. His favourite food – honey – lends the gin its characteristic sweetness, while the botanical blend gives it the weight of liquorice and a woody character as the essential oils come alive on your palate.
The Perfect G&T
For a Christmassy twist on the gin and tonic, combine AK’s gin with a premium tonic. Garnish with a cinnamon stick, an orange peel twist and a single Luxardo maraschino cherry.
