?Foraging for gin botanticals on’t telly?
I had a great morning showing these guys around a Yorkshire beauty spot foraging for botanicals to put in their very own gin creations back @cannonhallfarm later on (links further down)?
If you’ve been watching ‘This Week on the Farm’ during lockdown you’ll know Rob & Dave and their competitive brotherly antics well… so this ‘gin-off’ was no exception!?
With a united base of vodka, juniper berries, hogweed seed & angelica root, Rob ended up with an impressive 28 different botanticals in his ruby-coloured wild raspberry gin (including herb robert which he was tickled pink about!) whilst Dave went down a fruity route with orange zest amongst the wild botanticals, pineapppeweed & citrusy evergreens?
It was an absolute pleasure showing you guys some new flavours & even some tasty edibles you’d previously only known as weeds around the farm, fab! Thanks for having me along :)♡
If you’d like to see the show, do go to episode 8 of series on My5 (channel 5’s on demand site) and I’m on in the last quarter of the prog ?
OR: here’s just the bit I was in ??
Happy foraging & wild gin-making folks! Xx
