Fed up with Dry January?

We might have found the answer…GINUARY! Join us in celebrating the wonders of gin at this frosty time of year, and learn all about how to make a perfect G&T.

What is Ginuary?

Ginuary is an opportunity to appreciate all things gin over the month of January! Acting as a cheeky alternative to Dry January sobriety, Ginuary provides reasons to enjoy gin all month long…in moderation, of course!

How to make the perfect Rhubarb Gin & Tonic

There’s nothing like a dash of rhubarb to sweeten up a cold winter’s day – especially when paired with the signature tartness of gin! This G&T is incredibly easy to make, and the complementary flavours guarantee a palate cleanse with every sip.

The gin: Slingsby Rhubarb Gin (50ml)

Mix with: Fevertree Elderflower Tonic

The fruit: Fresh lime

The method: Try using a gin goblet glass for this one – this means you’ll be immersed in the fragrant aromas as you sip! Fill the glass with cubed ice and pour over a double measure of the gin. Top up the glass with the tonic, slice the fresh lime into wedges, place them in the drink and serve.


How to make the perfect Bramble

There is no cocktail more quintessentially British than a Bramble – or more delicious! This scrumptious drink was designed by Dick Bradsell in 1984 in Soho, with the aim of taking the drinker back to the days of picking wild blackberries in the countryside. As a special Ginuary twist, we’d recommend using Slingsby Rhubarb Gin.

The gin: Slingsby Rhubarb Gin (35ml)

Mix with: Chambord (15ml), Fresh Lemon Juice (25ml), Sugar Syrup (10ml)

The fruit: Fresh raspberries

The method: Select a whisky glass (failing that, any short glass will do) and pour in the gin, lemon juice and sugar syrup. Fill the glass with crushed ice and pour over the Chambord. Place 2 raspberries on top and serve.
