For the Love of Gin

I’m Sue Telford, a British writer, gin blogger and cocktail photographer with a love of craft gin and creating cocktails using fresh flavours.

For the Love of Gin is the online expression of my enthusiasm which I hope you will find informative and enjoy reading.

I will be sharing gin reviews, some great recipes and cocktails that anyone can create no matter what your skill level, whether home bar beginner or masterful mixologist.



I’m the author of two books: The Secrets of Sloe Gin out now on Kindle and How to Drink Gin available in hard copy in all bookshops and online, by Red Door Press. I’m currently writing a third book.


What you will find in For the Love of Gin:
  • Gin reviews
  • Cocktail recipes
  • Tips on how to buy and drink gin
  • Gin distiller interviews
  • Infused gin recipes
  • Cocktail syrup recipes

Sometimes I am asked by distillers to review their gins. I will make this clear in the review. This website represents my honest, unbiased and independent personal views on gin regardless of whether it is given to me or I purchase it myself. I also sometimes post press releases for your information. This does not represent an endorsement of the product.
