STRETTON’S & Barker & Quin collaborate to reinvent G&T

STRETTON’S & Barker & Quin collaborate to reinvent G&T

Stretton’s Gin have come to the rescue of all gin-lovers with a collaboration that’s bound to be the talk of the town. The award-winning Gin brand partnered with tonic experts Barker and Quin to perfect a timeless classic – Gin and Tonic.

When these two masters of their craft joined forces – the result could only be the perfect serve. Barker & Quin crafted a special limited edition tonic water to perfectly accompany Stretton’s Double Cut Gin. This means you can expect a G&T that is perfectly balanced and tickles the nose with fresh citrus and juniper notes. This is no run-of-the-mill, off-the-peg tonic, this is G&T Reinvented! And because this collaboration is too good not to share, the beautiful packaging makes for the perfect gift.

While there is nothing better than a good, old fashioned G&T, you can break free and experiment a little, Stretton’s is all about doing Gin your way.  Create a splash with something extra special for that amazing, Instagrammable bachelorette by trying a Stretton’s Doubly Bubbly- You will need 50ml Stretton’s Double Cut Gin, 50ml Grapefruit juice, 25ml sugar syrup, top with sparkling wine and garnish with sage.

For those who are looking for something a little more classic after a long day on the beach, try the Stretton’s Gin perfect serve, 50ml Stretton’s Double Cut, top with Tonic Water and Garnish with cinnamon and sage. No matter your mood there is an original mixture to suit any occasion.

In-store promo: This summer you can pop into a participating liquor store and with every purchase of a 750ml Stretton’s Double Cut Gin, you’ll also receive two limited edition Barker & Quin tonics from R159.99. While stocks last.

50 Shades of Pink

When it comes to wine, especially rosé, there are loads of guys who won’t touch it. Maybe it’s because they prefer a beer or a more refined spirit; maybe it’s because it comes in a stemmed glass, who knows?. What we can say though, based on the confessions of our local wine fundi, Jan-Nico Coetzee, is that even the tough guys have a palate for rose, and thanks to the bottled beauties listed below, we now know just why.
