I am going to start this post by saying that my relationship with gin is a little fickle. It is something I do drink but I am still experimenting with mixers to find the one that works for me.
Gin has become pretty popular over the last few years with small gin brands entering the market. One of those brands that has stood out for me is Smith’s Gin.
The SMITHS™ range of gins were created and developed by leveraging Rachel’s network of experts and suppliers. After a brief stint in consulting, Rachel decided to drive her vision of a bursary-funding and economy growing spirit company. The trend of gin and the Fevertree tonic pairing wheel were used to decide which flavours to develop for the range – Floral, Citrus and Spiced – ensuring all types of gin drinkers were catered for.
Vital for the SMITHS™ brand to be successful is that they are developed with quality and taste and confirmed objectively by experts. To prove this and be open to improvement feedback, they were entered into the South African Craft Gin competition where each variant won an award. Out of the 110 gins that were entered the Elderflower and Spice variants received Double Gold and Citrus received Gold. Production of the gins takes place in Johannesburg where all feedback from the competitions and panels was considered for the improvement of the gins in subsequent batches.
Obviously with lockdown, Smiths Gin has not been able to trade but the good news is that they now taking pre-orders for their awesome gin! So treat yourself to a bottle (or 3) of their gin to celebrate the fact that you have made it through lockdown this far. (Honestly I think we ALL deserve a little something for getting through the last 2 months.)
