Well, hello and thank you for visiting my page.
I’ve been writing for about 10 years now, have just completed a BA in English and Creative Writing and am shortly due to start a MA in Creative Writing.
After landing a job in a gin bar I became 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.
Since I began this I have been working as Brand Ambassador, write for Gin Magazine and have also judged the World Gin Awards 2018, which was an incredible experience.
Let’s make this clear. I don’t claim to know more about gin than anyone else. I’ve drunk a lot of that beautiful libation and I love trying different gins and learning to distinguish their different flavours. However, I am humble to industry experts and always willing to learn something new. I am though, very much under the ginfluence, passionate about history, 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!
