Just in case anyone is wondering, sláinte is ‘cheers’ in Irish.
A word often used at christenings, weddings – even Sunday lunches!
But while the Irish are wellknown for their whiskies and Guinness, less is known about their growing love of gin.
So, in the spirit of keeping you all informed (ahem), I visited the Irish Embassy in London to sample some new gins – each with an Irish accent.
Drumshanbo Gunpowder Irish Gin (see p19) was lifestyle editor Lara’s favourite, while mine was Dublin City Gin (see dublincitygin.com).
So sláinte to gin lovers everywhere. Enjoy a new taste from the Emerald Isle…
