Three Cocktails For February | Caorunn Gin


I know that weekdays can be a bit bitter and somber so I thought today I would suggest three cocktails that would be amazing within February. All three contain Caorunn Gin so if you love Gin then keep reading!

Caorunn is a small batch, quadruple-distilled Scottish Gin personally crafted by one man called Simon Buley. Using only the finest pure grain spirit, natural Scottish Water and 11 botanical gin ingredients, he personally crafts each and every bottle of Caorunn.that is sold to the public. It can be found in many stockists but is served in places such as The Botanist in Leeds.

A tall long glass with a red coloured liquid within wuth slices of apples placed on the rim of the glass on a blurred out background.
