It’s no secret that gin is having a moment. There are pop up bars dedicated to the spirit, you can spend an afternoon tasting your way through different botanicals or tour a gin distillery to find out how it’s made. You can even pick up gin-flavoured popsicles, teabags & sweets on your weekly shop. It’s definitely the nation’s favourite tipple, and with the rise in popularity of the home bar it’s easier than ever to bring your favourite cocktail into the comfort of your own home. Let the good times be-gin with the LSA International Gin collection…
When is a drinks trolley not just a drinks trolley? When it’s filled with the LSA gin collection. Featuring specific shapes to enhance the aroma of gin’s delicate botanicals, this must-have range of glassware is just the thing for creating your own Pinterest-worthy drinks trolley.
Subtly flared stems, tapering forms and thick bases add distinctive detail to the handmade glasses, all of which are designed to enhance the taste, aroma and overall experience of your favourite gin cocktail.
