IN GOOD SPIRITS!
Pie and mash; Strawberries and cream; Chips and gravy. All great pairings. All very British. None, however, quite compare to the legendary combination of a good old-fashioned Gin and Tonic.

260 years after sketching the infamous “Gin Lane”, little could Hogarth have imagined that “Mother’s Ruin” would turn…

THROUGH BOUNCING TO THE STARS
In 1931 the great crooner Noel Coward once sang “Mad dogs and Englishmen go out in the Midday sun.” Little could he have imagined that nearly 90 years later one particularly mad Englishman would not only go out in the midday sun, but would do…

THE REAL APPLE GENIUS

How it is already November is way past me. In the blink of an eye that sweltering summer has now been replaced with frosty mornings, giant scarves, and hot chocolate for breakfast (just me?) And what rhymes with November? Movember! Yes, it is that time of year to shed…

It all starts with me liking gin in general.
 

Meeting at a small railway arch in the backstreets of Bermondsey – close to Maltby Street Market – it would have been impossible to guess that the story of Jensen’s Gin actually begins in a…
