With staying ‘in in’ the new going ‘out out’, and bars and restaurants shut for the foreseeable, many of us are in need of a little at home tonic to help us through this challenging time.
What’s more, with the spring sunshine making an appearance, many of us are raising a glass in the comfort of our gardens, so to give you a little helping hand, Bolesworth has teamed up with Cheshire gin manufacturer, Hunters Cheshire Gin, to bring you three inspiring at home gin recipes.
With its heart in leafy Cheshire, Hunters Gin is a high quality, export strength London Dry Gin, full of character. Subtle citrus overtones and a spicy fruit edge using apples from historic Norton Priory Garden’s ancient orchard, the single batch distillation is derived from a 300-year-old recipe.
All Hunters ingredients are natural, no artificial flavours, oils or essences are used.
