I Love Gin January box

*AD - GIFTED* My favourite time of the month is quickly becoming my I Love Gin delivery day. Opening up the box to see what surprise gin goodness is inside is such a treat.  My I Love Gin January box arrived last week and, like with previous months, I've loved trying everything inside.

Unboxing the I Love Gin January box

The theme for the I Love Gin January box is a dry GINuary and the contents are slightly different to previous months. Inside this months box, instead of the usual two different gins and two tonics there is
  • A 50ml bottle of strawberry Pin Gin
  • A 50ml bottle of Brecon Special Reserve Gin
  • A 250ml bottle of Gordon's ultra low alcohol gin and tonic with a hint of lime
  • A 250ml bottle of Gordon's ultra low alcohol gin and tonic with a hint of grapefruit

My I Love Gin January box review

I am really impressed with the I Love Gin January box. Both the December and December boxes had two gins and two tonics, which is great. But, having something different in the pre-mixed Gordons gin and tonics is a lovely change. I always have tonic at home (the gin always seems to run out much quicker!) so it's not something I miss in this months box. Having some ready to go drinks are handy for a quick lazy drink at home or for grabbing on the way to a party.

The Gordons gin and tonic with hints of fruit taste delicious. I prefer the lime flavour as the fruity taste is a little stronger than the grapefruit. Being ultra low alcohol (0.5%) is a good change for the box too. Perfect for anyone continuing dry January. Or, like me, perfect for drinking with Sunday dinner. No Monday hangover here.

Pin Gin is a gin brand I already know and love. However I have only tried the original one so I am really happy to have the strawberry flavour. The strawberry is nice and strong without tasting artificial and the original peppery taste of Pin Gin still comes through. This is definitely something I will be getting a full size bottle of.

Brecon Gin is a new to me brand, from the first gin distillery in Wales and uses water from the Brecon Beacons. It is a traditional gin but the botanicals added; citrus, liquorice, cinnamon, nutmeg, coriander, angelica, cassia and orris root; make it a perfect drink for this time of year. A spicy and warming gin just right for the cold dark evenings.

An I Love Gin subscription is a perfect treat for yourself and makes a great gift too. For just £15 a month you can get the gins, tonics and a £5 voucher to spend in the online store.

Which would be your favourite drink from the I Love Gin January box?
