Penzance Gin create cocktails, perfect for toasting to a loved one this Valentine’s Day
Whilst we continue to be separated from our near and dear, the gin aficionados at Penzance Gin have created three tantalising tipples, to raise a toast with for your loved ones, this Valentine’s Day. Whether you’ve got a sweet tooth, or prefer a sharper edge, there’s something for every gin buff.
Penzance Gin is the creation of three friends from the village of Gulval who one winter evening over drinks at their local pub quiz hatched a plan. All three are passionate about Cornwall, great food, adventures…and of course gin! They decided that they would like to try to create a wonderful Cornish blend and agreed to dedicate the winter months to coming up with the ultimate bath tub gin, experimenting with the plethora of locally grown botanicals such a gorse and juniper to create a smooth, uniquely flavoured drink with complex warmth and clarity and a rich golden colour.
Available in a range of bottle sizes, from 5cl to 70cl, as well as part of a hamper, treat your Valentine to a special toast, with an added slice of Cornwall!
