Bottle of the Month - Fireside Gin

Updated: Apr 8, 2020

With Christmas just around the corner and the cold nights getting longer, we’ve been getting stuck into our “Bottle of the Month”. This is the first batch of a new series where we share our favourite tipple of the month to bring you something new and delicious!

This December we’ve been blown away by a sublime winter gin called Fireside. Crafted by the guys at Poetic License up in Sunderland, it's ideal for those looking to push the gin boundaries that bit further.

Before we even tasted the gin we were taken aback by the gorgeous shape of the bottle and intricate design. When you uncork (yes, these have a nice big cork stopper!) the bottle for the first time the smell instantly reminds you of Christmas with dried fruits and spices. They are big, bold flavours that we struggle to find in other gins.

Here’s been our favourite way to enjoy Fireside this month:

The Classic Serve

We found the best way to enjoy this gin cold is with a bottle of ginger ale as it really brings out the spices. However if ginger is really not your thing then a nice premium tonic water will be fine. Garnish with a healthy sliver of orange peel, and make sure you twist to unlock all the oils and zest.
