I approached the lovely folks at Pothecary Gin with an interest in working together as I’d heard so many wonderful things about this gin. As a winner of 3 prestigious awards, I knew there must be something to love about this drink.
The packaging is simply stunning, the simple turquoise background with gold writing is eye catching and has a vintage feel to it. I am a sucker for vintage!
Upon opening the bottle, the strong lavender smell was evident. It took me back to the time I found a bottle of lavender pillow spray at my Nan’s house when I was a child and being the curious, inquisitive, ‘old for my age’ person I am, I sprayed the heck out of the pillow to feel grown up and fancy.
I tried this drink with my Mum and where she wasn’t keen on the taste, I thought it was different.
I imagine this would be a perfect drink to sip in the garden on a warm Summer’s evening.
Pothecary Gin is an acquired taste but it is lovely all the same.
I give this a 3.5 out of 5 stars.
