For the Love of Gin



I’m Sue Telford, a Norfolk Uk based gin enthusiast and content creator, with a love of craft gin and all things juniper. For me, it’s all about the flavour. The kaleidoscope of possible flavours is what I think makes gin such a fascinating spirit. 


A fan of gin for more years than I can remember, back in the day, it was Gordons and Schweppes, ice and a slice. Then Bombay Sapphire opened a wedge in the door to flavour which Sipsmith blasted wide a few years later. The current craft gin revolution is heaven for a gin lover like me. I’m an avid craft cocktail fan too.


Inspired by the craft gin revolution, in 2017 I decided to turn my hand to creating my own gin. And, of course, what better place to do it than in my kitchen! Having turned my 9ft by 9ft kitchen into a gin distillery you can find me most weekends, foraging, macerating, steeping, distilling and tasting and generally having fun with botanicals.


Making gin is, I think, like cooking. Crafting a good gin with carefully selected botanicals is no different to baking a cake. You wouldn’t bake a cake with inferior ingredients as you wouldn’t distil with less than great botanicals. Get it right and the result is delicious. Get it wrong and unlike baking, you can always distil it again. 


So if like me you like love gin and want to know more then join me on my gin journey. I think you will like it.
