A World of Spirits: Bols Genever

In fact I think where most people have the equivalent to 9 nails worth of iron in their blood, I have 12 martinis worth.

And what better gin to write about than the relatively new offering, Sipsmith. Before I start I must note that this was the last set of photos taken on my old camera before I upgraded so please try and forgive the low resolution, regular high quality pictures will resume as of next post.

Springtime is here! There is a blue tit hopping all over the branches of the tree outside, and England is super excited because we had three hours of sunshine over a week or so. So what better opportunity than to showcase a very popular springtime drink, the Orchard Sour showcasing beautiful gin, apple and elderflower flavours.
