Members were treated to an exclusive collaboration between two amazing distillers this month and we are pleased to report the wonderful Dry Island Gin is going down a treat!
Four Pillars distillery from Australia and Hernö from Sweden have honed their skills and expertise and created a beautiful, bright gin with citrus notes, in a classic London Dry style. Not only that, but Craft Gin Club members are going to be the first gin lovers to try this amazing spirit before anyone else in the Northern hemisphere - the lucky things!
If that isn't enough to convince you that you NEED this gin in your life, here are 8 more reasons why - plus an exclusive un-boxing and tasting video from our fearless leaders - Jon and John!
1. What our founders think
CGC founders Jon and John talk you through this amazing box:
2. Exclusive and unique
Way back in 2016, we sent our members two of our favourite gins: Hernö from Sweden in July and Four Pillars in November. Thanks to the number of members who told us how much they loved the gins, Four Pillars and Hernö worked together to produce Dry Island Gin. We are so pleased to be able to send this unique and exclusive spirit, for our members to try before anyone else in the Northern hemisphere! - we just know it's going to be a firm favourite!
3. The Perfect tonic
Botanically brewed and exquisitely crafted, Fentiman's Valencian Orange Tonic Water bursts with the flavour of Spain's juiciest export, AND it goes perfectly with the Dry Island gin.
4. Snack attack
Carrying on with the fruity theme of this month's box, we have snacks and treats to suit all tastes. Strawberry and Cream Poshcorn from Tyrell's is the quintessential taste of summer and the Green and Blacks Velvet Edition chocolate is the perfect reason to GIN-duldge this month. If you're more of a savoury fan, Whitworths Shots nuts with a hint of chilli have you covered!
5. GIN-eral knowledge
As you sip your Dry Island Gin and tuck into the box treats, why not take a thumb through our club magazine Ginned?! This month's edition will tell you all about the story of Dry Island Gin and how this wonderful collaboration came about. There are gin quizzes, a delicious Dry Island Sundae from our resident gin chef Carol and loads of summery cocktail recipes to experiment with!
