Win a bottle of Brummie Gin
And learn about a Brummie gin in the process
Langley's No.8 is a delicious gin but their refusal to put the word 'Birmingham' on the bottle (despite being distilled at Langley Green) has always bothered me. Take a bow, then, Birmingham Brewing Co who have launched a gin called The Brummie. Made from their Pale Brummie mash from the Stirchley-based brewery, then distilled in Northampton, it's got six botanicals: Oris root, orange peel, coriander, juniper, lemon peel and cassia. Nope, I've not heard of two of them either. Their perfect serve is yuzu tonic (Fentimans) and, get this, half a birdseye chilli. Available at the brewery click and collect style, Friday to Sunday between 2pm and 6.30pm (£38 for 70cl), or available from their webshop, they also have cans of their perfect yuzu serve at £5 a pop. Buy it and/or win a bottle over on Twitter.
