Do you love gin, fancy a monthly subscription and want to read reviews before you commit?
You’ve come to the right place, I am an active subscriber of Ilovegin.com and receive a gin box once a month.
I signed up because I wanted to try different gins but without buying full size bottles. I love the idea of a little surprise each month.
What do you get?
You get a G&T box once a month which contains two miniature craft gins (50ml each), which amounts to four single drinks or two doubles, and two mixers or tonics (200ml each). I usually have it as two doubles with a bottle of mixer or tonic in each, well its already measured out and saves another trip to kitchen 🙂 You also get a booklet or leaflet containing info on the drinks, perfect serves and garnish suggestions.
Members also receive offers for money off full size bottles of gin and can enter competitions to win free gin.
How much does it cost?
It costs £14 a month including delivery. You will be charged on the 15th of each month. You can also buy 3 months for £42.00, 6 months for £77.00 or 12 months for £154.00.
When do you get your box?
As soon as you sign up, they send out a delivery of one of their previous boxes (or the one that members received that month), you are then charged again on the 15th of the month for your next box. If you sign up close to the 15th you might get two deliveries one after the other but you can choose if you only want to receive one.
Anything else to know?
You can cancel or pause your subscription anytime if you buy the monthly box. If you choose to pause, skip or cancel the current month and the box has already been dispatched they would need the item sent back to them in order to refund that month’s payment.
Unfortunately the 3, 6 or 12 month memberships are none refundable.
Deliveries are UK only.
Any other questions you may have, are answered here.
What did I think to it?
I’ve really enjoyed the gins and tonics I have received so far, they aren’t the type id usually go for so its nice to have a change every month. I love seeing the little shapes and types of bottles and different designs. Delivery has been on time, you get reminders to keep a look out for it and it all comes packaged safely.
Here’s what I thought to May and Junes boxes:
- AD|Slingsby Gooseberry Gin with Fever Tree light indian tonic water and a slice of green apple– This gin is infused with Yorkshire gooseberries and crafted using aquifer water from Harrogate. Named after William Slingsby, founder of the Tewit Well, and created by fusing both the waters he founded and locally grown Yorkshire gooseberries. It has a lovely tangy summery smell to it, with a fruity flavour it went with the light tonic very well. I really enjoyed this one. Rating 9/10
- Colonsay Gin with Bumblezest CBD tonic water and a slice of orange– This gin is from Scotland and has a lovely cute bottle design. The sweet flavour of the gin went with the gingery tonic perfectly. I slept very well after drinking the CBD tonic so i’d save this one for last, its also quite strong ginger flavoured so you couldn’t drink more than a couple. You can serve this with a slice of orange or a fresh green chilli if you are feeling brave! This one was my favourite. Rating 10/10
- Rock Rose Original with Poachers Citrus tonic water and a slice of orange– This gin is from Scotland and has an ingredient called Rhodiola Rosea which means rock rose. It had a lovely smooth texture and lovely botanical flavours such as lemon, sea buckthorn and watermint. The poachers citrus tonic is from Ireland and has an orange and rosemary flavour. A good combination of flavours in drinks made from two lovely countries. Rating 8/10
- Rock Rose Grapefruit with Poachers Wild tonic water and a slice of pink grapefruit– This gin is crafted at Dunnet Bay Distillers – in the spectacular bay of Dunnet in the far North of Scotland using an old family tradition that involves the use of a copper pot that they lovingly named Elizabeth. The gin has a floral smell with a smooth vanilla taste and tangy grapefruit and lemon sherbet finish. The Irish made Poachers wild tonic water has hints of elderflower. Both the rock rose gin bottles were cute, I love the design on these, I’ll have to try their other gins! Rating 9/10
I will continue with my subscription and see what other lovely drinks and mixers I can try. If you have been wanting to try a gin subscription, I would recommend these boxes as they are good value for money.
