Whittaker’s Summer Solstice Gin (Episode 193)

In this episode, we taste Whittaker’s Summer Solstice gin.

On the nose, the grapefruit comes through and on the tongue, the taste is quite forceful.

The alcohol may be hiding some of the taste when drunk neat and when tasted with tonic the grapefruit smell seemed to have morphed into tangerines.

We both prefered this gin with tonic, making it smoother and the tonic brought out the tangerines taste together with making the gin “juicier” made the drink.

This is a great summer G&T!

Ashdown Ros̩ Wine (Episode 192 РPart 3)

This wine is a great salmon colour, on the nose or if you like, it has a smell of strawberries and cream!
It tastes of strawberries, but John M felt the wine does not have much length or put another way the taste does not last for very long.

Agnus Arber Gin (Episode 191)

In this episode of Gin Fun, we taste a wine named after Angnus Arber who im1948 became the first woman to win the linden Society Gold Medal. Agnus died in 1960 having produced an extensive library of books on both botany and philosophy.



It is with this appreciation of Agnus’s work that the creators of this the Agnus Arber Gin created their gin.

The nine botanicals used to create this gin are: –


John felt that some of the flavours mixed together to form a mushroom type taste.

There are lots of different tastes going on in this gin and which makes it very interesting to taste neat.

With tonic added the taste seem to be flattened to just the Orange and Junipers flavours – so for us, this one should be enjoyed neat!

3 Choirs Red Wine in a Can (Episode 190 – Part 4)

In the last part of this episode, we taste Three Choir’s Red Wine in a Can.


The wine looks wonderful when it comes out of the tin and into a bottle.
For a wine that is in a can, it has a sophisticated and lovely nose!
Full of fruit and jammy on the taste.
We drank this wine at room temperature but felt if it was a hot summers day it might take a slight chill.

3 Choirs Dry White in a Can (Episode 190 – Part 2)

In the second part of this episode, we taste a can of their Dry White wine.

On the nose, the wine smells similar to Sauvignon blanc, with John M detecting pears and pear drops.

When drinking it had pineapple/tropical fruits flavours or notes as they would say in the wine world.

It was very smooth and round such great quality for wine in a can – the perfect drink when you are travelling.
