Gordon Castle Gin review *

If you haven't gathered already, I am very partial to a drink of the alcoholic kind. A weekend never seems to pass where I actually ended up being sober.. maybe I have issues? But who cares haha. One of my favourite drink choices is a nice cold glass of gin and tonic with a few slices of fresh lime. So when Gordon Castle Scotland contacted me and asked if they could send me a few samples of their award winning gin, I was not going to say no. 

I thought the perfect time to try this sweet nectar was at my boyfriends house party last weekend. It had been an amazing day in sunny London and this beverage ticked all the boxes. When I opened the sample, the smell wasn't as over powering as some gins I tend to buy which can sometimes put me off. This did make me think that the gin wasn't going to be that strong.. But I was wrong.

It may have been the way that I poured my drink but it seemed to get a lot stronger towards the bottom of my glass.. Not that I am complaining but maybe I should have mixed it up a bit more. 

Overall, both my friends and I thought this gin was great. It tasted really refreshing and got me quite merry even after my first glass. I am not normally a lightweight.. I blame the weather. My only criticism was that I wished I was sent more haha.

So, I would highly recommend this to any of my gin fanatic readers out there. It costs £32.99 for a 70cl bottle and can be purchased here.
