Boadicea Gin; Winter is coming…

‘Winter is coming’... A term infamously coined by Kit Harington’s ‘Game of Thrones’ character, the sulky faced heroine, Jon Snow (not to be confused with Channel 4 newsreader Jon Snow - despite the fact that i’m sure you’ll agree he could still rock the medieval leathers/dragon slayer look). And at this time of year, never... Continue Reading →

Mackintosh Gin

As I stood at the bar, gentling flicking my long blonde locks from my eye-line and readjusting my more than ample cleavage, I couldn’t help but feel that it was perhaps just a little bit chilly to have come out for the evening wearing little more than a swimming costume and a smile...

MicroBarBox; you’ve got mail!

Now it’s fair to say that I don’t really tend to get all that many exciting deliveries through the post box these days... Gone are the flirtatious and unsolicited offers of credit cards from financial institutions I’ve never frequented. Those regular little love notes from the AA, offering me vehicle coverage that I didn’t want... Continue Reading →

Brockmans; Press for Gin

Don’t think about pink Elephants... Don’t look behind that door over there... Don’t press that button... Chances are that when you hear these lines, you’ll ultimately end up thinking of pink elephants, trespassing and punching that button so hard that it falls through the floor right?! There’s something in our nature that dares us to... Continue Reading →
