Breaking World Records

I now get to add to record breaker to my list of achievements...

Last Thursday I was invited to The Botanist to take part in a worlds largest gin tasting event. Our site, along with eight other sites took part in sampling three gins from three different companies: Caorunn Gin, Tanqueray 10 Gin and Whitley Neil Gin. 

We were given a strict time to show up for and were told once the event started that was it- no toilet breaks, no smoking and a shock for us bloggers, no social media!! If we were caught on our phones, we would be disqualified from the event. Cue the room lighting up with flash bulbs as we tried to get in our pictures as quickly as possible.

As gin is my favourite spirit, I really enjoyed the event. I loved trying gin neat for once and really understanding the history of gin and the notes you can find within certain types. My favourite out of all three was Tanqueray 10- there was something so nice and fully body about it and it is delicious with pink grapefruit. 

I am also happy to announce that we did it and broke the world record!! a whopping 700+ of us took part and not only made history, but also enjoyed ourselves. The night couldn't have gone any better.
