Banshee Etcher Gin

As I shot bolt upright in bed, I will admit that I was completely and utterly petrified! We were on night one of our holiday to Lanzarote, staying in a hotel that was pushing the boundaries of what could technically be considered ‘hygienic’; let’s just say that what our room lacked in health & safety...

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... Still, as... Continue Reading →

Divine Gin; Last of the Summer Wine…

It’s midday on the last Saturday of September and, with summer drawing to a close, we are driving through the winding country rounds in to the picturesque town of Holmfirm. Even though filming had wrapped up back in 2010, Holmfirth is perhaps most famous for having been the set location for the classic British sitcom... Continue Reading →

Red Door Gin

We’d arrived home at around 2pm on a cold November afternoon in 2014, and found ourselves sat agasp on the driveway. Something was wrong with the house!... Having just arrived back from our Mexican Honeymoon adventure, after nearly 24hours of travelling, I had lost track of whether the bleary eyes were from the Margaritas or... Continue Reading →

Malfy Gin

There’s a shootout! One man fires but misses. His adversary takes aim and fires a killer blow. There’s a knowing look. Inaudible words are exchanged. A grown man in tears. It’s over...a nation mourns. Ah. Italia 1990. Every four years when the World Cup comes back around, we Brits find a way to revel in... Continue Reading →

Sir Robin of Locksley Gin

The people’s champion. A man amongst men. A handsome & loveable rogue. Charitable and kind, and yet a macho master of the art of archery. And boy, can this guy rock a pair of tights... Now, you could be forgiven for making the fair assumption that I’d started this blog with a bit of ‘self... Continue Reading →

Pothecary Gin

I can't watch '24 hours in A&E'. When 'One Born Every Minute' appears on my TV set, I'm watching from behind a cushion. I can't even watch 'Embarrassing Bodies' without cringing in horror! When I see white coats, scalpels and '10cc's' of something medical flash up on my screen I may as well be watching... Continue Reading →
