As I have whinged about on other threads, I am in the midst of a 3 month dry spell to celebrate/survive my son’s birth. Happily, it turns out my beloved Mrs A thinks an occasional gin is permitted, as it’s not wine. Who am I to argue?
Some particularly tasty wine arrived from reserves today (Ch de Bouscasse 2010, if interested - just about my favourite roast duck wine) so my resolve has been tested.
Today’s answer is Tattered Sails Gin, made using hops in Brixham.
It may sound like the work of the devil but the hops provide only a gentle background warmth and wholesomeness, leading to the conclusion that this must surely be good for you, like wholewheat bread.
Has anyone else resorted to good gin in order to maintain a tricky teetotal period?
