Ginspiration #002 - House of Elrick

"A Scottish gin crafted for an enlightened mind" - that's the strapline for a gin that's starting to come more & more to people's attention ... House Of Elrick Gin

Based in Newmachar, Aberdeen the gin is distilled using water from Loch Ness with a combination of juniper, coriander seeds, angelica root and citrus peel. To this is added heather, pink peppercorns, sweet fennel and rose petals.

As with so many gins these days, it is clear that a lot of effort has gone into designing a stand-out bottle that would grace any shelf:

I was hoping to try this gin personally at the Juniper Gin Festival weekend but unfortunately they were only able to attend the Edinburgh event the weekend before. However if & when I do get to try then I will be able to tell you personally how good it is!

Oh, and that bottle (once empty) will come in handy for what appears to be the must-have home accessory these days, a gin bottle lamp!

House Of Elrick gin is available to buy online at £38.50 for a 70cl bottle
