Beefeater London Gin

At Sister Number 1’s Christmas mull party this weekend, she unexpectedly came up to me with a bottle of Beefeater Gin. “You haven’t reviewed this on G&C and it was on offer, so I bought it. Review it!” This is unusual. At parties most […]

Dog’s nose

A few weeks ago on Twitter (you can follow me here) there was a discussion on whether or not you can mull gin. This is a silly question, because I can mull anything and at the end of some Christmas parties, I’ve tried to. The conversation […]
