Mother's Day Gift Ideas

Perfect for gin lovers, the award-winning Shakespeare's Distillery have launched a new Dry Gin entitled ‘Mother’s Ruin’, just in time for Mother's Day.  The name is a humorous nod to London’s disreputable history of gin drinking depicted in William Hogarth’s famous print ‘Gin Lane’. However, unlike the poor-quality 18th Century spirit, this delicious new Distillery Special is sure to delight with flavours reminiscent of a summer garden with Butterfly Pea Flowers, Hibiscus, Lemon Verbena and Thyme plus traditional Gin botanicals of Juniper, Coriander Seed, Orris Root, Lemon Peel and Cubeb.

Mother’s Ruin is available in three bottle options and retails at £35 for a 50cl bottle, £18 for a 20cl bottle and £6.50 for 5cl bottle. These can be purchased online, at the distillery shop or from the shop at No 1 High Street, Stratford-upon-Avon. For more information, please visit

Your Mum deserves a pamper, so why note treat her to a Spa Day Gift?
