We like to think we have a good idea of what our members like - one thing being new and interesting flavours. Each month we send out alternative mixers for them to experiment with and May 2019’s Gin of the Month box was no exception: our members were treated to the delicious Breckland Orchard Sloe & Rose Lemonade, which complemented the Gin of the Month, romeo’s gin, perfectly.
If you don’t like tonic but love gin, or just fancy trying something different from your usual G&T, we recommend this range of artisanal, all-natural soft drinks, and there’s a whole rainbow of mixers to bring your favourite gin to life. Try these surprising combinations to reveal unknown dimensions in your favourite gin – and then keep experimenting until you’ve mixed a masterpiece of your own!
