I’ve never bought a home before and doubt I will be able to for a while and I never ever would have been able to relate purchasing a home with food and drink. But Bancon Homes have done just that and are making the ritual of moving into a new home a celebratory event by providing new home owners with a bottle of their bespoke limited edition Bancon Homes Gin.
The only catch, they only build homes in the North East of Scotland, so if you’re buying a home in and around Aberdeenshire, Moray and Angus, you’ll be a lucky recipient of one of these lovely bottles of gin.
I was very lucky to have received a sample of this gin and I have to say it was quite delicious.
So why give the gift of gin instead of a bouquet of flowers to new home owners?
Bancon Homes have been building houses for over 30 years and have gained a reputation for homes that boast exceptional design and quality. After sponsoring the Gin Tent at the Banchory Beer Festival in 2017, Bancon Homes thought that creating their own gin would be a more unique and befitting gift when taking the step of purchasing a home.
The gin is distilled and bottled at the Persie Distillery at Auchtenflower, Blairgowrie and is a classic London Dry Gin using a blend of botanicals including cassia, cinnamon, Macedonian juniper berries and cardamom. I can confirm it’s very fresh and light but with a lovely warming after taste.
If you are not lucky enough to be purchasing a home in the North East area of Scotland but still want to get your hands on this lovely bottle of gin, Bancon Homes have a competition running on their website. You can enter here – www.banconhomes.com/our-gin-story/
