When I first heard about the release of Gwyr, Gower gin at the end of 2017 I knew that I needed to try it. It’s no secret that I’m a big fan of Isle of Harris gin with it’s notes of sugar kelp, so I was sure that I’d love Gwyr gin with it’s hints of foraged fennel from the coastline of the beautiful Gower Peninsula.
WOW! What a few days it has been. After what has seemed like an endless house sale/ purchase process we finally got the keys to our new house 10 days ago. The search started in August and after receiving an offer on our flat in early October we were lucky enough to find our dream house within days.

When I told my Mum that we were heading east to explore Peckham her immediate thoughts were of high rise concrete blocks similar to those characterised in Only Fools and Horses; but much like the rest of South East London the area has changed vastly over the past few years. Photos of Peckham fill my Instagram feed daily and there seems to be a new bar, café or restaurant opening every week (far too many to try and review in an afternoon). The area is popular with young professionals, families and hipsters alike all trying to get a slice of the action.
