Twelve Keys Gin is so named from the 16th-century alchemical text The Twelve Keys of Basil Valentine. Each of the mysterious keys was a step in the process of alchemy, the process of turning base metal into the elixir of life, aka. the philosopher’s stone. And before this all gets very Harry Potter lets get back to what this is really about: gin.
Junipalooza London 2019 was on Saturday 8th and Sunday 9th June this year and was Gin Foundry’s 6th year and my 2nd. For those of you who don’t know what all the fuss is about Junipalooza London is probably the biggest (and best) expo for gin – in the world. An annual celebration of gin and a must for gin fans.
