The cocktail of the month from October 2018’s gin of the month box pays tribute to the Battle of Bosworth, where Richard III – the namesake of this month’s gin – famously fell to the army of Henry Tudor. The last of the Plantagenet monarchs is said to haunt nearby Leicester, where his skeleton was found after hundreds of years spent under a council carpark. Raise a toast to this much maligned king with a Blood on the Battlefield, designed by Craft Gin Club’s resident Gin Expert!
