I HAVEN’T been drinking during the week recently, but when a bottle of Greenall’s gin landed on my desk this week, I had the perfect excuse to break my resolve and try it straight away.
In any case, I’ve also been looking for an excuse to feature these glasses from our wedding on the site. They were a tongue-in-cheek gift from a family member, but we’ve used them over and over as they are the perfect size for a big splash of gin and tonic, finished with a generous squeeze of fresh lime.
How beautiful are these sunflowers too? I adore sunflowers and it’s my favourite time of year when I can grab big bunches of them and place them all over the house.
This Gin Extra Reserve is a travel exclusive (which means you can only buy it in Duty Free) and has a lovely dry flavour note. I find the Greenall’s range a great gin which taste delicious, and is still affordable. This bottle is less than twenty quid in the airport, and is a really good quality.
The official description says: “Greenall’s Extra Reserve has the traditional Greenall’s The Original London Dry Gin profile with sweet orange notes coming to the fore. The exclusive new expression builds on the much loved citrus element in Greenall’s The Original and via the addition of exotic citrus botanicals, including sweet Moroccan orange, Turkish grapefruit and Spanish lemon, delivers a wonderfully balanced and smooth taste.”
