It's been a long time since I did much writing. But I'm back!
I've been writing since I was 4, and drinking gin since I was 18. I figured after 48 years of writing and 34 years of drinking maybe the twain should meet.
In my family old fashioned gin was a drink of choice and I grew up with juniper scented kisses and the smell of traditional gin in my nose. Perhaps for that reason I always liked gin. From my earliest tase of it to today. I grew up drinking traditional gin, my favorites being in the Tanqueray family.
Now I'm not by any means a heavy drinker, in fact I disapprove of drinking to excess but those were lessons learned, as mistakes are the only thing you can truly call your own. That doesn't stop me from enjoying a drink or two every few days. But gin is something for days when I'm not driving. I would hope all my readers feel the same way.
That said I can walk home from my local pub should I decide to imbibe during a night playing at dart league. But that's ok my local doesn't have a great gin selection anyway. (or at least I could pre Covid)
and when I'm not drinking gin, or working, tend to spend my time fishing, reading and playing online Scrabble (BTW the new scrabble app sucks). I also love to cook, brew beer, and consider myself quite a bit of a foodie.
Happily I've done more than drink and write over those last years and I have developed a thriving business, not at all connected to alcohol. I live with my wife, daughter and 2 cats.
My tastes in other alcohols tend to lean towards whiskey, beer, and absinthe.
