July 2014 meeting: Gin Tasting with Sacred

July saw a classy meeting for The Alexandra WI with Sacred Gin teaching us all there is to know about gin, how to taste it and some of the botanicals used to flavour this tipple.

The session started with a lovely martini, followed a tasting of not only Sacred’s standard gin, but 6 other gins with heavy flavour accents of significant botanicals: juniper, grapefruit, orris root, cardamon, coriander and liquorice. We then got to try our hands at mixing our very own gins to enjoy as a gin and tonic or to take home!

It was a fantastic relaxed meeting, perfect for making friends and enjoying a long summer night. We might just have to arrange to have a welcome cocktail every month!
