Move Over G&T, It's Time For G&L (Gin & Lemonade)
My Northern Lass Gin has been specifically blended to mix perfectly with tonic or lemonade - the first gin ever to be made with lemonade drinkers in mind. The 38.5% abv gin is juniper forward with a light touch of berry and when paired with lemonade, the citrus really helps the botanicals and flavours shine through, to leave a very smooth and refreshing drink.
The gin was inspired by the strong, independent women in my family, from the North East of England, who always taught me to never follow the norm and push boundaries. As a family who love a good adventure, it seemed fitting to create a gin that reflected the beautiful and diverse nature the north has to offer.
Winter berries add a natural and subtle sweetness to the gin, complimenting the juniper without overpowering it. This is a very smooth drink and is easy to drink.
I have worked within the gin industry since 2016, running events and gin tastings for countless brands all over the UK. I love it, gin is my passion and I love sharing my knowledge and love for amazing gins with others.
One thing that is different about me is that I am not so keen on tonic, and having spent years engaging with like-minded gin lovers, I have discovered that I am not alone. In fact, I am part of a growing number of gin drinkers who are looking for new ways to drink their gins.
I enjoy mixing my gins with lemonade, but often find that the citrus in lemonade can overpower the flavours and drown out the gins. So, 2 years ago I set out on a mission to make a gin that was actually enhanced by the addition of a citrus-forward mixer, such as lemonade or orange juice.
It has taken a while to perfect the recipe and a lot of testing out on willing subjects, but I am now happy to release my product as the first gin designed specifically to be mixed with lemonade or used in citrus based cocktails.
If you're a tonic lover, please don't be put off by the gin, as when mixed with a premium tonic you will be pleasantly treated to a juniper and berry taste sensation.
Northern Lass Gin is presented in a tall 500ml bottle, with elegant floral designs - making this a very striking feature on any gin shelf. No northern Lass's home would be complete without one.
If you would like to support the launch of my Northern Lass Gin and be one of the first people to get your hands on a bottle from the first batch produced, please check out the rewards.
All the gins and rewards will be dispatched mid November, so will arrive in plenty of time before Christmas.
This campaign is an all or nothing campaign, so if we don't hit the target, you don't get charged a penny - meaning that choosing to support me and my gin launch is completely risk free.
The money raised through crowdfunding will go towards the production of the gin, as well as helping cover the pitch costs to attend festivals and fairs around the North of England so that more people can discover this unique gin and be converted to G&L!
