Window Wednesday – Mr Fogg’s Gin Parlour

For Window Wednesday this week I am featuring this little gem:  Mr Fogg’s Gin Parlour.    An old fashioned gin parlour that feels like an 18th century front room, right in the heart of London, tucked away between Leicester Square and Covent Garden tube stations, with a bar serving gin and afternoon tea. I had

Gin of the month — July — One Gin

My gin of the month for July is One Gin, a gin I whose story I have followed for a while, but that I only got to taste for the first time last month.    I first came across it on Kickstarter, the crowd funding site and then in one of those weird twists of

World Gin Day 2017

  Is here!  World Gin Day is here.    And if you will excuse me whilst I say “thank feck for that”. What a week. What a sodding week.    And it is not getting any better is it?  I have a bit of a “no politics” rule at home because we are all often

Gin of the Month — January — Jawbox

There was a time when the front door was left unlocked. When the kitchen was the scullery.  And in the tiny scullery stood this big sink. Clothes and dishes and weans got washed there. A lot of craic was heard around a jawbox.  It still is. From the moment I first heard about this gin I

Ginmas Week 5

  Week 5 of #Ginmas is now done and I have to say that at the beginning I really wasn’t sure if I would manage to post a gin a day for a whole month.  To be organised enough that every day at 6pm I would have a photo of each gin and a little
