So as I was perusing the shelves of my local tipple store, my eyes are immediately drawn to a beautifully packaged bottle named Bathtub Gin. It sounds like a challenge in a bottle. While I am not an advocate of sipping spirits around water, I am captivated by the stunning typography on the label, and the hand-wrapped paper casing which is accompanied with a wax seal is screaming out to be held…

On the nose, you’ll get the typical tropical flavours of cinnamon and pineapple with a healthy dose of buttered vanilla with a warm, toasty waft coming through at the end. The vanilla comes through on the palate too, with almonds, wood and just a few notes of dark chocolate leaving a sweet and somewhat piquant finish…
