2020 Gin Roundup

2020 Gin Roundup
Happy New Year’s Eve!
 
It’s been a year and a half but we got through it and even managed to achieve. Thank you to you all for your support and kindness. Both our physical and mental health took quite a beating but although we may have been down we didn’t give up and we’re going into 2021 with the business, and ourselves, pretty much in one piece.
How are we ending 2020? We’re looking forward to some ginny-fun via Zoom at our NYE Gin Tasting at The Shed!
If 2020 has taught us anything, it is to make the most of each other, each day and be grateful for every win, regardless how small it may seem.
Thank you, take care, stay safe and look after each other. See you in 2021! 🍸😀
