Relax with a Botanical Gin
We love nothing better than a chance to relax and have a drink with friends - what’s even better is if we have a pretty and tasty beverage in our hand too! Why not try a local multi award winning artisan gin when out in one of our local pubs or restaurants? Wicked Wolf Exmoor Gin is so flavourful you can have it on its own served over ice with a sprig of thyme.
