Gin of the Month
The October Gin of the Month for our Scottish Gin Club members is the award-winning Old Tom Gin from Mackintosh Gin.
With the nights drawing in and the shorter days upon us, we feel that the super refreshing gin which is distilled with grapefruit and pineapple is the perfect pick-me-up while remembering the warmer days of summer.
This is the first time we've included an Old Tom gin in our subscription boxes so we've included a brief overview of this gin style.

The September Gin of the Month is Yuzu Gin which is part of the new Colours Range from Linlithgow Distillery.
Aside from being a deliciously refreshing gin, we also wanted to showcase this Yuzu Gin to highlight how different botanical combinations impact the flavour of the gin.
Those of you who also received our gin in August will know, one of the key botanicals in Purist Gin is also yuzu. However, this Yuzu Gin is very different in flavour to Purist Gin as the other botanicals used differ in flavour profile and quantity. You can read about the botanical mix in Purist Gin.
