The G&T Club - Biggar Gin
Updated: May 16, 2019
The views in this review have not been influenced by anyone at G&T Club. They are all our own views and we have not been paid for this post.
Last week we were lucky enough to be sent the first ever gin box from the new gin subscription company “G&T Club”. We were already following them on Instagram so it was great to see the end product of what they had been working on over the past few months.
The idea for the G&T Club was conceived by Christian Azolan and Konrad Treter during a night out at somewhere we like to call London’s “Mecca of Gin”, the Holborn Dining Rooms. Not only do they make a fantastic beef wellington, they also stock over 500 different gins from all over the globe, as well as a wide variety of different tonics. If you’re a gin fan, or even a food fan, you MUST check this place out - you won’t regret it. It was during that visit that Christian and Konrad thought how incredible it would be to have access to a great selection of different gins and tonics in the comfort of your own home and this is something we can definitely relate to. When we started collecting gin, we would regularly try new gins from the supermarket, and we’re not saying the supermarkets sell bad gin (because they don’t - they’re actually now selling some really good gin) but to find an exciting gin that isn’t widely commercially available, you have to search further a field.
This month’s gin box is, for us, exactly what a G&T subscription is all about. Before this, we hadn’t tried Biggar Gin, but we knew of it and it was on our list. So when we opened the box, we were really happy to discover that bottle sitting there. Along with a full sized bottle of gin, we also received 2 x 200ml Mediterranean Fevertree, a little tin of botanicals (juniper berries) and then two sweet and savoury snacks from Love Cocoa and Walkers Crisps.
One other thing that stood out to us was a bottle of Lemonaid, this is something we hadn’t heard of before, but after a little research it made sense as to why it was in there. As part of their business, the G&T Club have committed to giving 5% of all their profits to the Lemonaid & ChariTea foundation. The Foundation is a non-profit organisation which aims to contribute to the sustainable improvement of social, economic and ecological structures in the Global South. Particularly in regions that have been negatively affected by the structures of the global economy. Click here to see some amazing gin cocktails you can make using their products.
If you buy at least one bottle of gin a month, it’s definitely worth checking the G&T Club out. You’re going to get a good quality bottle of gin, some great tonic and some really good extras on the side. We like the excitement and surprise of not knowing what you’re going to get. They have a few different subscription options which range from monthly, bi-monthly or quarterly and each option costs just £40 per month all in delivered to your door. As a great intro into the G&T Club, Konrad and Christian have given our followers a whopping 40% off their first order using the code NEW8 (try it here) - that means you’ll get your first order for only £24. You only have to look at how much a bottle of Biggar Gin costs to realise that makes sense.
We’re looking forward to seeing what their next box contains. If you’ve joined the G&T club, let us know what you think.
