O U R N E X T C H A P T E R ▪️ My Insta presence has been pretty non-existent over the last few weeks, all because we’ve been preparing to move house 🏡🤗 We’ve finally moved into our brand new abode, and I am SO HAPPY! We spent 5 and a half years in our flat and we are both just so ready for our own front door, our own wee garden and just a bit more space ▪️ And to mark the occasion (😂) I got these little key rings from @andotherstories - I think they’re v cute. Not sure what Craig thinks 😂

H O T E L B R E A K K I E ▪️ hotel breakfast is the best breakfast 👌🏽 can’t beat some fresh fruit, natural yoghurt and a thimble of fresh juice 😂 (why are buffet drinks glasses so little!?) • We’re at the Craigellachie (@thecraigellachie) in beautiful Speyside, getting ready to celebrate the McKenna wedding 😍 what are you upto this weekend? (disclaimer: as good as the fruit & yoghurt was, I still couldn’t resist a wee Scottish breakfast 🙊) Roll on the celebrations 🥂👰🏼🤵🏻🎉

S U N D A Y B R U N C H I N G ▪️ Massive congratulations to @the_teasmith on their @sundaybrunchc4 debut today 🙌🏼 absolutely amazing to see a local gin featured on a national TV program - so well deserved ⭐️ and well done to the Sunday Brunch team for choosing a great product like Teasmith to support - great to see them support local and all that 👏🏼😊 Congrats @nick_smalley and @emmajaynesmalley - all the hard work is paying off! 😁 #teasmith #sundaybrunch #supportlocal #theteasmith #scottishgin #localgin #perfectserve #sunday #sundayfunday

A T H I N G O F B E A U T Y ▪️ I have posted a photo of this beautiful gin before, but I just had to share this one too 😍 I finally bought a bottle of @isleofharrisdistillers for my gin collection and haven’t brought myself to opening it yet! Which is ridiculous because it’s there to be enjoyed... 😂 but just look at how beautiful it is ☺️ I don’t want it to end... what gin are you enjoying on this fine Friday!? ⭐️ #gin #harrisgin #isleofharris #scottishgin #ginblog #ginlover #ginandtonic #perfectserve #aberdeen #aberdeenbeach

T W O Y E A R S ▪️ today marks two years since the happiest day of our lives 😍 and this photo mostly summarises the shenanigans 😂 #wedding #shotshotsshots

E E N I E M E E N I E . . . ▪️ Which one will I have!? 🤔 Ok, all of them 😉 @laura_aplin and I went to the @ryeandsoda / @10dollarshake gin tasting on Wednesday and it was GREAT • Any excuse for a midweek gin, right?! I think the only one of the five we got to try which I’d had before was the @kinraradistillery gin (thanks to @aberdeenginfest last month) - so it was great to be able to try the others! 🌿 I REALLY liked the sweet flavours of the @lostlochdistillery Eenoo gin and @theginbothy and @biggargin were great as well (all served with regular @fevertreemixers tonic and citrus garnishes) 🍋 I think the Thompson Bros gin from Dornoch was of very good quality, but potentially a bit on the punchy side for me (I could probably only drink one - it wouldn’t be a repeat tipple on a night out for me! 🙈) • Rye & Soda (10 Dollar Shake) are running these events on the first Wednesday of each month, with five different gins or gin liqueurs at £20 per person - quite a bargain if you ask me 💃🏼 Thanks to the team for introducing us to all of these gins! • Have you tried any of these ones before? I’ve still got my eye on the Kinrara special edition bottle... 😍 #gintasting #gin #scottishgin #craftgin #newgin #ginblog #ginlover #perfectserve #ginandtonic

S U N D O W N E R S▪️ I picked up this little guy at Bergen Airport at the end of a work trip this week and have been waiting until today to be able to try it 🌿 Check out that bottle - utterly lush! Love a bit of Scandic design ✨ Having just poured a (generous 😉) measure, topped with some light tonic and plenty of ice, I can confirm that this is a very good gin 🖤 it’s full of flavour (akvavit botanicals), yet is soft and leaves a silky (almost vanilla-y!?) taste 😍 being able to enjoy it out in the garden with family makes it all the better 🌤 what’s your tipple of choice on this mild Friday eve!? Happy Friyay 😘 #nordicspiritslab #nordicgin #gin #friyay #ginlover #ginandtonic #sundown #sundowner #ginblog

F Y V I E C A S T L E ▪️ throwback to last weekend’s visit to @fyviecastle, one of our many local @nationaltrustforscotland sites 🏰 so fascinating to hear all about the history and to see all the furniture, paintings and features ✨ what’s your favourite National Trust location? #fyviecastle #fyvie #nts #nationaltrust #aberdeenshire #visitabdn #visitscotland @visitabdn @visitscotland

L E T ‘ S G E T S M A S H E D ▪️ the avo kind 😉 how scrumptious does this look though?! Smashed avocado and feta on sourdough toast 🥑 THAT is how to do brunch on the last day of your London trip ☺️

# G I N W E D D I N G S ▪️ We absolutely love a wedding, especially when it’s our nearest and dearest! 💕 it’s definitely wedding season and the two most recent we were honoured to attend were both absolutely beautiful, with scorching weather and loads of fun ☀️ Unsurprisingly, (😂) I do love a gin incorporation 😜 My buddy @latkins0n had a rustic “pimp your gin” bar serving up @lonewolfspirits and @lauraburndred used empty gin bottles as part of her decor and displays at @elsickhouse - lush! 🌿 Look at that backdrop at the Barn at @barracastle - unbelievably beautiful 🌾☀️😍 #wedding #weddingseason #gin #ginbar #ginandtonic #pimpyourgin

G I N O N T H E G R E E N ▪️ After a loverrrrrly pamper session at @jomalonelondon, we took a wander down to the @aberdeeninspirednights event on The Green! 🌿 So many great local food vendors serving up some pretty epic looking (and smelling 🤤) food! We chose @smokeandsoulfood brisket wrap 😋🌯 And not to mention a yummy @portersgin served with @bonaccorddrinks tonic, fresh rosemary & lime by @thepittmarket 🙌🏼 have you been yet? It’s such a great addition to the Aberdeen summer calendar! ☀️🎷🍻 (p.s. how gorge is my mama!? 😍 swipe 👉🏽)

J U N I P E R L E S S G I N ? ! ▪️ We all know that a gin ain’t gin without a strong juniper base! ✨ But @sweetdram, a new discovery at @aberdeenginfest, have created what they call a “juniper free botanical spirit”, so effectively a gin... without any of the juniper but all of the flavour of spicy and citrusy botanicals 🌱 I was sceptical... after all, I was at a gin festival! 😂 But this was probably the star surprise at the gin fest ⭐️ clearly not my favourite (because it’s not gin 😉), but a really tasty spirit and one I’ll probably be picking up on my next bottle shop stop!
