Maiden Gin

Friday, 27 January 2017

Editing Time's Fool, I was struck by how seldom Sophia was seen without a glass of something in her hand. Those who know her creator, however, understand that I am abstemious, practically teetoal, and would never do something so undignified as get hammered. However, my hometown is historically famous for distilling gin - a practice that has recently been restarted by The Maiden Distillery, who make a gin they describe as "fresh, bright and bursting with flavour."

Known as history buffs, my partner and I were kindly given a bottle for Christmas, an act of generosity which contained one minor oversight:

Gin tastes like licking the devil's armpits.

However, my partner prevailed upon me to sample it, saying it was "warming, with a sweet liquorice aftertaste."

Well, he videoed me, and I promised to share it if I raised £100. So:

If you appreciate fine gins, please do support the Maiden Distillery by purchasing their artisanal gin. Just don't make me drink any.

If you like seeing me humilated, please suggest other things with which I might mortify my tastebuds for your amusement.

There are many fantastic ways of drinking gin, none of which involve drinking it neat. I like the sound of the liquorice aftertaste though. Glad to see the spirit of artisanal quaffing is alive and well in Beccles x

Ha! Yes, I'll drink it in a dry martini - provided it's partnered with a strong tasting vermouth, or something where the taste is masked entirely. But me drinking G&T? Now that would be another entertaining video.
