BOOKS: THE CURIOUS BARTENDER’S GIN PALACE

We were delighted to pick up a copy of Tristan Stephenson’s new book about gin – The Curious Bartender’s Gin Palace, and read his enthusiastic review of Hepple Gin. He describes Hepple as “probably the most important gin distillery to open this decade.”

Of the gin he says: 

“The finish is dry spice and oily, resinous, but clean feel. Benchmark stuff. Good for anything you throw at it.”

While we’re still new on the scene it’s rewarding to have such a positive review.
