All good things come to an end and this week, we are coming to the close of our Christmas collaboration with Ludlow Gin. But our mutual passion for the Ludlow lifestyle endures and in celebration of our little love-in, Shaun has gifted us a bottle of his amazing new Betelgeuse gin liqueur for you, dear reader, to win.
All you have to do is head over to our Facebook page, find the competition post and tell us where in Ludlow did Shaun work prior to starting Ludlow Gin? BIG CLUE: it’s a pretty big Ludlow landmark!
Shaun created this limited edition winter gin liqueur with mulberries from his own garden and damsons from the National Trust Brockhampton Estate in Herefordshire, as well as from our gardens in Shropshire. Late autumn fruits have been carefully blended with his classic Ludlow Dry gin together with delicate and aromatic winter spices: orange, clove, nutmeg, ginger and cassia bark.
Betelgeuse is a wonderful winter warmer and with it’s gorgeous winter tones, a beautiful festive gift. Shaun says, “We’ve all created a winter tipple, whether for the hip flask or a cheeky totty on a cold night; this is something quite special though. Taking it’s name from the red supergiant winter star, part of a constellation of Orion, this little beauty is sure to light up your dark nights.’
Shaun has also gifted to us this unique Christmas cocktail recipe. So tuck yourself up in front of the fire, flick on those sparkly fairy lights, stir gently and let’s raise a glass to old friends, new beginnings and better times ahead.
