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.

Kerr’s Gin steam their botanicals

Most gin, if you are a lover of gin you will know that the botanicals are usually boiled but what makes Kerr’s Gin different you ask?, well they steam their botanicals. By steaming it captures more of the subtle aromas and complex flavours, together with the barley base, this creates a gin of distinctive depth and character.

I was given a thank you gift of Kerr’s Gin courtesy of The Borders Distillery for reviewing their Puffing Vodka.

The Borders Distillery opened back in March 2018 and was the first Scotch Whisky distillery in the Scottish Borders since 1837. They are dedicated to capturing the true spirit of the Borders bringing whisky making back to the region plus vodka and gin.

Pink Marmalade Gin magic in a bottle

We believe in love at first sight I believe in love at first gin. Pink Marmalade Gin is a premium gin like no other as it does not just taste great but it magically changes colour when adding tonic to it.

I was gifted a PR sample of Pink Marmalade Gin to enjoy within the comfort of my home.

Pink Marmalade Gin

Pink Marmalade was founded by purveyors of parties, drawn together to create immersive, hedonistic worlds and elevate event production beyond the everyday.

The gin is an expression of everything the creators wanted from quality to magic to bring people together to share in life’s simple pleasures of gin.

Pink Marmalade Gin is balanced with 13 botanicals, tastes exceptional and is magic in a bottle.

When mixed with tonic the gin magically turns from a cool blue to a subtle rose pink all thanks to the Butterfly Pea flower within.
