Which drinks professionals have inspired you & how?
Do you have a favourite Gin Botanical? (Yes. Really.)
Wattleseed as it brings an amazing creamy texture and mouthfeel. makes gin drinkable to the biggest haters and naysayers. And lemons. Where would we be without lemons?

If you were a gin or a gin cocktail which would you be and why?
Clover Club. Fruit, punchy and somewhat seasonal. And raspberries.
