Aimee Talks Gin

Yay – so glad you’ve come on over for a little look!

Aimee Talks… is a new blog set up by me (Aimee, incase you hadn’t guessed that already) talking about all things gin, primarily.

I’m no gin expert, but I do absolutely love it and have thoroughly enjoyed the recent surge in craft gins entering the market. Living in Scotland, I’m spoilt for choice. There have been numerous new distilleries popping up in the North East (where I live), but also all over the country and even all the way out to the isles.

I hope you enjoy the posts to come – I have lots of exciting ideas for features and stories that I can start getting after! Look out for gins of the month, gift ideas, distillery tours, interviews, reviews and more. I hope to mix up use of text, photos and videos to keep it exciting, so watch this space…

I’d love to hear your thoughts, opinions and ideas, so please get in touch! It would be great to hear from you.

Until next time,
