So my cute little sample of Tiger Gin arrived on Saturday morning.
Not ideal in the sense that I had errands to run and an adult life to (attempt to) continue. Because quite frankly, since the attractive little number arrived, I thought about nothing else.
The gin was fragrant and strong. A cheeky swig straight from the bottle (classy) offered a spicy yet sweet taste.
It’s smooth, just gliding down the throat. A good first impression, I thought it’d be wise to add a little tonic.
A classic G&T. The strong sense of juniper and that added sweetness makes a very enjoyable number. The gin comes through profoundly.
Then, I decided to get adventurous…
My favourite gin concoction consists of fresh mint leaves, a squeeze of lemon and a good drop of elderflower. So I tried it out using the Tiger Gin too.
It’s definitely a brand I’d want in the cabinet for impressing friends. The pricey tag means it’d be kept for best but I’d definitely buy it.
I think it’s more so because I like the brand identity. It feels polished, slightly vintage but slick and prestigious.
The boast of being a Great British Gin is also a winning factor for me.
I also like the guy behind the brand. Albeit, I’ve never met JJ Lawrence, but I like the confident and informal tone of voice on the website and through social. So yeah, I kind of want to buy the bloke’s gin. Not just because it’s a cracking little gin. And that’s key.
If your an avid gin lover, à la me, please give it a try. It’s unique and a great addition to a collection.
