ILoveGin Winter Wonderland Subscription Box

ILoveGin Box containing Peaky Blinders and AberFalls Gin

Gin seems to be the go-to drink in this day and age; and I absolutely can’t complain, I love gin and lemonade. When I was offered the opportunity to trial the ILoveGin subscription box for three months, I knew I wouldn’t be declining the offer, and I looked forward to trying it. The box costs £14 monthly and contains two 5cl bottles of gin and two bottles of tonic. This is enough to make a total of four G&Ts, which isn’t bad value for money at all.

Ilovegin Elixir Box, containing two gins and two tonics

The box arrived nearing the end of the month, it was very well packaged and super exciting to open (as you won’t know what gin you will get until it’s here!). This months edition was the Winter Wonderland box; containing:

  • Aber Falls & Peaky Blinder Gins
  • Regency Blue Tonic x2

The Peaky Blinder Gin is derived from the era of Peaky Blinders; who ruled the streets of Birmingham during the first World War. In ode to this time, the gin is referred to as ‘punchy’ and tastes of orange, coffee bean, and cassia, ginger, black pepper and fresh citrus. Additionally, the Aber Falls marmalade gin is another orange flavoured gin; with juniper running throughout. I was super impressed to find out that the marmalade gin had also won a silver medal at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition.

I was also super impressed to find out that the Regency tonic is produced in Sussex, and is a premium level product. The sugar content is low and the ingredients are all natural, meaning that it’s a lot healthier than high sugar alternatives. I’m usually more of a lemonade person than I am tonic, although having tried the gin with both tonic and lemonade (separately, obviously), I can confirm that it is v tasty!

Overall, I’m really impressed with the quality of the products that ILoveGin offer, especially considering the affordable price point. I can’t wait to see what the next box has to offer!

    I’ve recently started drinking more gin but I absolutely hate tonic, I always have to have it with lemonade and I only like the sweet flavoured ones like rhubarb, parma violet etc. This box is a great idea though, I know so many people who’d love it, definitely will keep it in mind for gift ideas!

    This looks like a really good subscription box! I don’t really like gin unless it’s flavoured so I’m not sure if this is for me but my mum would love something like this! x

    I’ve actually never tried gin other than in cocktails. Everyone was vodka drinkers in my uni days but I keep being told gin is really nice so I really want to try it this year!!

      I’d 100% recommend – especially cause you can get so many flavoured gins now! Violet flavour, raspberry and rhubarb are my faves 😀

    It is pretty cool that there is a gin subscription box. Big plus that it is not expensive either. I know I’d want to try all of them out, hehe. The history behind the Peaky Blinder Gin is interesting. Glad you liked the gins! Thanks for sharing!

    I can’t handle gin lol. I get too messed up and the taste isn’t my favorite. But these look good. I’d try it. Just not much, to get sick. I’ve only had one REALLY bad hangover before in my life, and boy do it NOT want a repeat lol. Your review was very thorough, and I learned some things. Great job!
