SW4 gin glass

Just the tonic…

We are very excited to announce that we have gone very local, not even a mile away from Glut HQ with the addition of a new supplier SW4 London Dry Gin.

Many of you will know that here at Glut HQ we take the sourcing of the accompanying edibles and drinkables to our plants that go into our gifts very seriously. We have always championed small independent suppliers which is why we are delighted to announce a new partnership with SW4 London Dry Gin which is made in small batches just under a mile away from our offices in Clapham.

This not only local but delicious award winning gin uses 12 botanicals to achieve its fantastic taste. It has made our Gin Drinkers Gift even more fantastic and unique.  

This wonderful gift is perfect for any gin lover who is partial to a delicious gin and tonic, but would also like to have a go at growing their own junipers bushes.

Taken from their website we wanted to showcase a fantastic recipe that will show off this delicious gin.
