I have been toying, on and off, for several years with writing a “Gin Botanicals” post. It’s always been lower on the priority list than the several bottles of unreviewed gins loitering and gathering dust on my shelf, and the issues of structure, length, where to draw the line, etc, always put me off.
Well, recently, someone bought me The Botanical Ginvent Calendar, from Master of Malt, which have given me the impetus to bang-out 24 short posts, each dedicated to a single gin botanical. This, of course, does rely on the fact that I can maintain the gruelling schedule of writing one short post a day, for 24 days.
So, this post is going to act as an index of botanicals; the first of many posts. The rest will each detail a specific ingredient of gin.
Grains of Paradise
Earl Grey Tea
Kaffir Lime Leaves
Wooo, watch the list grow day-by-day.
