Happy New Year! I know I'm a little late but I've been very busy.
It's been a beautiful summer so far. Apart from lot's of work and looking after a puppy, I've been busy in the veggie patch, had guests stay from London, worked with some amazing creatives and I've enjoyed my birthday!
To kick off this very exciting year (can't wait to share with you!) I'm starting off with one of my favourites - the G+T.
Not just any gin & tonic, the guys at Four Pillars Gin make the best gin I've had the pleasure of enjoying so far. And it's local! They have a distillery experience coming up for my Melbourne friends and if your in Sydney you can enjoy their wonderful gin masterclass. You get to see where all the magic happens, meet Wilma the magnificent copper pot still, enjoy tastings and go home with a goodie bag.
I hope you enjoy and I wish everyone a beautiful, happy and healthy New Year - cheers!
