About me

Gin A Ding Ding chronicles one woman’s love affair with, and self education in, all things gin.

I drank the gins that were readily available in bars, supermarkets and my parents’ booze cabinet. Two fortuitous moments changed all that: In the summer of 2014 I won tickets to Gin Journey‘s London Gin Experience and learnt about the history of gin at Beefeater and about the craft gin renaissance at Sipsmith. Then in the summer of 2015 I won 10 bottles of premium gin from 31 Dover. There was no looking back….
