Chin Chin! 4 of the best local gins
In times of need - yep, like right now - we turn to gin. These delicious local tipples should take the edge off your night in and can all be delivered to your door.
Well, if there was ever a time to drink this is it! Weak? Certainly not, sometimes I don’t even bother with tonic water. (OK that’s a joke before anyone starts dialing social services). G&T is definitely our favourite tipple at Muddy and lucky us that some of the best gins in the land happen to be local to Norfolk. Order a couple of these bad boys for delivery or click here and win the ruddy lot!
Norfolk Gin was in at the very beginning of the Gin revolution and paved the way for the hundreds of local producers in Norfolk. Using the bathtub method, Norfolk Gin features a unique combination of fragrant botanicals prepared by hand – fresh juniper aromas and herbal scents, balanced with a touch of spice, hints of sweetness and fragrant citrus which are slowly steeped in the ‘bathtub’. This gentle method gives Norfolk Gin its irresistible flavour and its subtle straw-like colour.
£42 for 70cl – see various stockists for delivery
What a Hoot Gin
Bursting with Norfolk flavours, fruity accompaniments and winner of a Muddy Award 2019 – WhatAHoot Gin is certainly shaking up the artisan gin market! Mixing up a delicious blend of botanicals including the flavours of sea samphire and lavender, it’s very much a unique taste of Norfolk.
Their latest gin – ‘Tawny Orange’ is a natural fruity little number and perfect for the summer.
£40 for 70cl plus they have mixer packs (and hand sanitizer!)
Boadicea Gin Rosa
A fruity little summer tipple – this pink gin is infused with subtle notes of peach and cherry. Perfect served straight up over ice, or for a longer drink serve with Champagne or prosecco. Wild Knight Distillery also produces vodka and I strongly suggest you try their Nelson’s Gold, vodka and caramel – it’s a cheeky little number! Fancy a cocktail night? (why not?) – their Wild Knight Espresso Martini will blow your mind. Or simply order one of their collection packs and make the most of the delivery!
£31.97 for 50cl
Bullards is a name that’s synonymous with the history of Norwich. Well known for supplying beers, wines and spirits, Bullards spans six generations and continues to the present day with their award-winning handcrafted gins – Strawberry & Black Pepper, London Dry and Old Tom. There’s something for all tastes and here at Muddy we’re quite partial to an Old Tom with its aromas of honey, pink pepper, vanilla and mango.
When we are allowed back out to play, check out their Gin Experience at the Ten Bells in Norwich – a masterclass that promises to broaden your gin knowledge, educate your palette and provide you with unique insights into the magic of the Bullards gin distilling process.
£40 for 70cl (plus they have a rather eco friendly refill pouch)
