I really do like the concept of receiving a drinks kit; all you ever wanted delivered in a box straight to your door.
Flavourly was started in 2012 by local lad Scottish entrepreneur Ryan O’Rorke who in 2015 was offered full investment from four of the Dragons Den investors, turned them all down and sought to crowdfund instead.
They work with small independent producers of gin like Kokoro Gin, Daffys Gin, Arbikie, Pickerings and Eden Mill; and craft beer from Stewart Brewing, Edinburgh Beer Factory, Beavertown and the Wild Beer Co.
Flavourly have developed their Discovery Club where you can discover new drink profiles every month and they are building the UK’s one-stop online retail shop across craft beer, gin, spirits and gifts. There are two Discovery Clubs you can join.
The Gin Club you receive 3 x 200ml bottles, mixers and snacks for £34.99 per month with free delivery. It comes in a very handy well packed box and is an utter delight.
The Craft Beer Club, you receive 10 x craft beers personalised to your taste and monthly magazine for £25.00 per month with free delivery.
They have a wide selection of Spirits including rum, brandy, whisky, vodka etc as well as the very quirky LetterBoxGift sets which are available this Valentines Day. You basically post gin and not bills! You receive two pouches of pink Honey and Raspberry Gin Liqueur and a personalised message in a box that fits through your letterbox for under a tenner!
I was sent a lovely Gin Gift Box to try out and it genuinely is such a lovely gift to receive, either to yourself or from someone.
I received a bottle of Verdant Gin, Dingle Gin and Daffy’s Gin; as well as two bottles of Lamb & Watt Tonic Water, two packets of Fairfield Farm Crisps and a lovely magazine to read once I’d kicked off my shoes, poured me a drink and relaxed.
Verdant Gin is from Dundee and won the Scottish Gin of the Year 2017. It is distilled in small batches from the highest quality ingredients in a 500 litre pot still “Little Eddie”. It is aromatically juniper-led with fresh notes of citrus on the nose and palate with warm, earthy undertones of spice. You’ll taste juniper, coriander seed, lemon peel, bitter orange, cassia bark, orris root, green cardamom, angelica, liquorice and grains of paradise (think pepper and ginger).
Dingle Gin is from County Kerry in Ireland and is described as a classic London Dry Gin. Dingle uses hand-crafted copper pot stills and a small swan neck pot still. The distillery opened in 2012 in the old sawmills on the outskirts of Dingle town. Amongst other botanicals they also use rowan berry from the mountain ash trees, fuchsia, bog myrtle, hawthorn and heather for a taste of the Kerry landscape.
Daffy’s Gin made here in Scotland. It’s fresh, woody, floral and toffee; fruity and full of life. On the palate it’s a smooth and vibrant spice with an oaky mouthfeel, leading to lively citrus and Lebanese mint then to red fruit followed by juniper. They use the finest pure wheat grain spirit from northern France, distill it in the same manner as malt whisky on an ancient single batch copper pot still. The botanicals are a combination of the traditional – juniper, coriander seeds, cassia bark and the new – Lebanese mint and rare variety lemons.
Flavourly is all about a new way of drinking #drinkdifferently. I do like the fact they encourage you to use social media and love their twitter feed, filled with funny snaps of what you (and some cats) get up to at home once your parcel arrives!
To give you the opportunity to snap your own pics with Flavourly, we’re giving away a Gin Box similar to the one featured.
