Talk of the Town | the place for bookish people to be (November 24th)

Welcome to Talk of the Town.  Good to see you back again this week – so pop the kettle on and share with us your lovely bookish news!

If you’ve not shared with the Talk of the Town linky before, I co-host with Shaz from Jera’s Jamboree  and you can check out all the details of the linky here. If you have any questions, please ask.

This will, however, be our final post for a while as we take a break. Thanks for all your support, shares and comments to date! x


We’re continuing to share Gin Galore by Sean Murphy – a Journey to the source of Scotland’s Gin!

The blurb

Scottish gin has never been more on trend. It’s currently undergoing a massive revival, fuelled in part by the boom in small craft distilleries which have reinvigorated and transformed the gin market. Gin can be relatively simply produced – which enables craft gin distilleries across Scotland to create a refreshing range of boutique products, many of which are making some seriously big waves both in this corner of the world and beyond. Did you know, for example, that a Scottish gin has recently been crowned the ‘World’s Strongest Gin’ – taking the title from a Swedish distillery?

World Gin Day and the Scottish Juniper Festival – plus the huge boom in spending on gin in the UK – mean there’s no better time to be a gin fan, to get to know Scottish gin and the intriguing stories behind it. This guide will make the perfect companion for gin lovers across Scotland and the UK, as well as gin-loving tourist visitors to Scotland…




  • 50 independent or bespoke Scottish gins
  • Cocktail recipes or perfect serve suggestions for each gin
  • Space for your own tasting notes and ratings, making your book a passport to the world of Scottish gins
  • An expert section on the distillation process

  • A lesson on garnishes, helping you to change things up when you serve
