There is a chill in the air, the leaves are turning brown and the scent of pumpkin lattes fills the atmosphere! Autumn is here and along with all these lovely seasonal delights comes a BRAND NEW GIN! Yes, the October Gin of the Month box is landing with our members today and if they aren’t feeling very autumnal yet, they will do when they open this box of treasures! The gin’s recipe is over 300 years old and the botanicals are a true nod to the journey this amazing spirit has been on!
October’s Gin of the Month box
This month’s offering is worth over a whopping £64! We’re travelling back in time to uncover the origin story of our favourite spirit. Join us as we trace gin’s journey (in royal company, no less!) From the Netherlands to Britain, and Discover some terrific treats along the way!
This month’s sensational spirit has travelled all the way from the Netherlands and through time with the recipe dating back over 300 years! The distillers of Gin 1689 dug through historic archives to find the recipe that would have been used when William of Orange popularised it in England!
Double Dutch Tonic Water x 3
Cranberry & Ginger, Indian Tonic & Pomegranate and Basil
Not one, not two but THREE tonic’s feature in October’s Gin of the Month box! Just like the Dutch prince who inspired Gin 1689, Double Dutch’s founders Raissa and Joyce de Haas grew up in the Netherlands before making England their home. Their delicious tonic’s success is rooted in a deep connection to both lands!
Cocktail of the Month
3/4 Oz Ginger Syrup, Angostura Bitters, Tiptree Tawny Orange Marmalade
When the Dutch Prince William of Orange took the throne of England in the Glorious Revolution of 1689, he kickstarted a revolution of another kind: he introduced gin to England! This month, we’re celebrating the origin story of our favourite spirit through the cocktails, including this special tipple paying tribute to the prince of gin! Featuring the sublime 3/4 Oz Ginger Syrup, the iconic Angostura Bitters and the sharp and sweet Tiptree Tawny Marmalade all in the month’s beautiful box!
Dark Almond Sea Salt and Milk Hazelnut
Just as William of Orange ushered in a new era when he took the throne of England, the colourful chocolate in October’s Gin of the Month box is setting a new standard for ethical business. Tony’s Chocolonely is a brand that’s proud to be working towards 100% slave-free chocolate! And this month our lucky members get to sample not one, but two of these sublime chocolate bars!
Tyrrells Sweet Chilli & Red Pepper Hand Cooked Crisps
