August Gin Monthly

It’s only a couple of weeks since I wrote my last gin monthly so it truly does feel like time is flying as we race towards the end of the summer. It’s been a good one for me (even if I am also really looking forward to sending the kids back to school!) as I hope it has been for you; here’s what my August looked like…

July Gin Monthly

I so nearly wrote my July Gin Monthly on time, but then I went on holiday and now it’s mid-August already. Oops! I guess we better see what I can still remember…

June Gin Monthly

With Junipalooza and World Gin Day bang in the middle of the month June was always going to be busy, but I’m not sure I was prepared for quite so much fun. From canal boats to saunas there’s certainly plenty to catch up on again!

May Gin Monthly

Wow! I think May might have been my busiest and best month in gin ever. And I’m not even talking about #GinADayMay.

In fact, given one of my articles was a few days late and this gin monthly is even later, it is quite apparent I didn’t entirely keep on top of everything! Anyway, better later than never as they say. Here’s what I can still remember from that whirlwind of a month…

February Gin Monthly

I’ve got to be honest, I don’t know where February has gone and I’m not really sure what I’ve done either. But there’s a fair bit of booze news and new releases to catch up with, so continue reading to find out what you might have missed out on.

January Gin Monthly

It’s been a long old month and I haven’t even been attempting Dry January (although I have been enjoying a little of Lyre’s non-alcoholic Coffee Originale, which I discovered at the Spirits Masters Low & No Masters 2022)! If you’ve stayed sober, hats off to you. Meanwhile, I’ve been quietly busy with lots of writing and a little bit of judging. To find out more, read on…
