A look back at November 2020

November we was put back into lockdown due to the fight of Covid-19 so community events had to take a back burner again as restaurants and entertainment venues closed. So this month I focussed on promoting for a variety of businesses from frozen ready made meals which can be enjoyed at home through entertainment companies who stream online LIVE events. All opportunities I was kindly gifted on a courtesy experience to try in the safety of my own home.

Vemacity it’s gin o’clock after 96 hours

We are a nation of gin drinkers, and as a lover of gin myself, I and many others are naturally curious about how gin is made and flavoured. Thanks to Vemacity I learnt the basis of how to make a gin with botanicals at home. I never knew that gin started from infusing vodka with juniper berries for 48 hours before adding botanicals to flavour and infuse for yet another 48 hours. After 96 hours it then was soon gin o’clock time where I could celebrate with a lovely glass of my homemade flavoured gin within a balloon copa gin glass.

I was gifted on a courtesy basis from Vemacity their ultimate gin making kit and engraved gin glasses.

Vemacity

Vemacity was set up back in 2018 by two Londoner’s who loves gin and wants to spread the enjoyment of gin to all.

Their passion is to create a new way to experience gin and tonic through their products. There are so many incredibly delicious gins out there to discover and experiment with but they wanted was to bring a gin and tonic experience to all like no other. To them a great gin experience is anchored within the moment that you create around it. Time, effort, attention to detail and knowledge are equally as important when experiencing gin.

Vemacity brings to the world a new and interesting way to enjoy gin. They believe a great gin and tonic should be served the right way and engage all the senses. So, they set out to create specialist barware and gin gifts which elevates the experience of drinking gin at home.

Hawkes cider apple of my eye

Hawkes cider is the apple of my eye as their ciders are truly the best.

Cider is an alcoholic beverage which is made from fermented juice from apples. The addition of sugar or extra fruit before a second fermentation increases the ethanol content of the resulting beverage. In UK law, cider must contain at least 35% apple juice (fresh or from concentrate).

Cider is drank around the world but did you know that the UK has the world’s highest per capita consumption, as well as the largest cider producing companies?

Courtesy of Hawkes I was gifted their new Limited Edition Winter Spice Cider along with some of their other produced ciders and a Beanie Hat.
