The Whitley Houston

The Whitley Houston

The Whitley Houston is another fruit favourite of ours, this one will leave you singing “I will always love you” until the bottle has gone. Tall or goblet glass, plenty of ice, 1x 50ml bottle of Whitley Neill Original Dry Gin, Fever Tree Mediterranean Tonic Water, blackberries, raspberries and strawberries. Cheeky Tip: Buy frozen mixed fruit, fresh straight out the bag into the glass, Bosh!

The Plymouth Pilgrim

This Plymouth Pilgrim is from far and wide, traveling the seas to mainland Ginnington to tackle our taste buds with this beautiful fresh and traditional gin. There are many fruits and spices that go with this gin but my tipple is  juniper berries. Tall glass for this one, ice halfway, Fever Tree Mediterranean Tonic and 5 or 6 juniper berries.

The Cheeky Orange

We will be offering two beautiful orange gins in our boxes. Aber Falls Orange Marmalade & Whitley Neill Blood Orange, both delicious and full of flavour. I like mine in a small stubby crystal glass, you know the ones with the snazzy patten on. Ice to the top, 50ml shot or less, remember these are double measures. And if you are feeling artistic, a curly wurly rind of orange and to top it off Fever Tree Mediterranean Tonic Water. Cheeky !!

The Boogly Boo

The Boogly Boo is named after our much loved Cockapoo Bella Boogle Boo. Refreshing traditional G&T without all the frills. Choose your favourite glass, top with chunky ice, one slice of fresh or dried lemon. Oh and by the way, the flavour that is stored in a slice of dried lemon is surprisingly tangy. One 5cl/50ml Bottle of Boodle London Dry Gin, with either premium Fever Tree Indian Tonic Water or Refreshingly Light Tonic water….. The choice is yours.

The Aromatic Orange

50ml/1 miniature bottle of Opihr Gin

Fever Tree Aromatic Light Tonic

1 Slice of fresh or dried orange

Plenty of ice

Get your self a large goblet glass, half fill with plenty of chunky ice. Poor over 50ml/1 Miniature bottle of Ophir gin and finish with a slice of fresh or dried orange. All this is available in our Premium Cheeky Box

Enjoy x

The Opihr Singer

Ophir Singer

Ophir, along with its stunning bottle has a very unique flavour of cardamom and black pepper. Be careful with this one she has a set of pipes on her. What I mean is don’t go heavy on the gin, no more than 50ml measure. Fever Tree Indian Tonic and a large chunk of grapefruit. I like to squeeze a little of the grapefruit juice in to give extra flavour.

The Minty Tanq

Tanqueray Export Strength is a very versatile and exciting gin with great flavors of juniper, coriander and liquorice. However, one of my favorites is a large goblet glass, plenty of big ice cubes, one cheeky tip is to keep your gin in the freezer, and it comes out thick and gloopy! 50ml of Tanqueray gin and a few sprigs of mint. One other tip is to place the mint in the palm of your hand and clap your hands together, this infuses the mint and gives you instant taste. I grow mine in the garden.
