The world of gin is a fast-paced one and there are few places where that is more evident than at Junipalooza. Last year, I attended as a lucky competition winner and it was that experience that spurred me on to start this blog. This year, I was fortunate enough to be invited back as a “gin-sider”, so to speak. And I’m not the only one: last year Finlay and Eileen Geekie attended as members of the public; this year they were behind the stall of their very own, highly acclaimed, Colonsay Gin.
With new craft distilleries opening every month, and existing distilleries increasing their portfolios, the number of gins on the market is growing exponentially. But how does one keep up with so many new products? How do you decide which one is good enough to invest in and which one isn’t worth your hard-earned pennies? Sometimes when you’re spoilt for choice and short on time it’s just easier to let someone else do the hard work for you. That’s where the Craft Gin Club comes in.
