I’m not a huge Christmas fan – it’s expensive and more often than not a letdown – but I’m a big advocate of drinking and this product seems perfect for that particular endeavour.
Everyone but my mum and Odane from work loves orange chocolate and everyone but my mum – she prefers vodka recently – and Odane from work loves gin. So why not mash the two together (the consumables, not the people) and create a tipple for everyone – bar two – to enjoy?
Well that’s exactly what’s happened and you can enjoy the fruits of that combination for a reduced price.
Usually retailing at around £34, a 35% saving makes a 50cl bottle a modest £21.95 and if that’s not enough of an advert, I don’t know what is.
46% is strong. Jeez….
It’s worth saying that this categorically isn’t an advert, but if anyone wants to send some gin my way, I don’t want to say I’ll do anything, but… you know the guy from the Fyre Festival documentary? That.
You hear me, That Boutique-y Gin Company?! I’m willing to channel Andy King for some of that good liquor.
Ha! And my mum thinks I have a problem…
Anyway, available on Amazon, That Boutique-y Gin Company describe their chocolate orange gin, saying:
“It combines the richness of chocolate, the refreshing qualities of oranges and the deliciousness of gin to form something terrific – Chocolate Orange Gin!
Bitter orange peels and roast cacao nibs get all up in the mix during distillation, alongside some traditional gin botanicals, lending the spirit distinctive notes that’ll be familiar to lovers of the classic confectionery.”
Chocolate cake made with orange essence in the batter. Touches of peppery juniper cut through the sweetness. Fresh clementine and enjoyably bitter cacao intermingle at the core, while floral elements bring lightness to the mixture.“
Sounds like chocolate orange-flavoured gin, to be honest.
Listen, I think it sounds lovely and if you don’t trust me, just ask the reviews…
Speak for themselves…
Get some… or don’t. I’m not going to tell you what to do.
