Well, hello and thank you for visiting my page!
I’ve been writing for about 10 years now and have just completed the first year of a degree in English and Creative Writing at Chichester University.
After landing a job in a gin bar I’m now obsessed with the stuff. I was trying to work out how to marry my two passions and this was the result.
Being in the industry has opened doors to fabulous training sessions and the amount I’ve learnt in the short time I worked there surprised me. The enthusiasm I felt was almost compulsive and it’s not just me, I’ve stumbled across many a fellow gin fiend recently. It seems that gin really is something that people like to get stuck into.
As well as this, I’ve met some fabulous people within the industry that are happy to talk about their part and their distillation knowledge. Although I no longer work in the bar I’ve met lots of fellow fans and through twitter I’m able to organise visits to meet more distillers and try more gin.
Let’s make this clear. I’m not an experienced gin drinker. I’ve drunk a lot of that beautiful clear liquid and I love trying different gins and learning to distinguish their different flavours, however I wouldn’t say I’m an expert; I’ll happily leave the experts to what they’re good at. I am however, very much under the ginfluence, passionate about flavour and story; how the distiller got started and why they chose the botanicals they chose. I’m a gin lover. And what I think I do best is share that love and enthusiasm.
I’m keen to share what I’ve been lucky to learn and I’m always thirsty for more so would love to speak to anyone with interest in the subject. So please do get in touch!
