Buying gifts for Father’s Day can be a bit of a hassle. By definition, fathers can be super hard to buy for – by definition they always seem to have everything they could ever want or need. A few years back, I resolved only to buy gifts which are both a treat and are useful. Happily, O’ndina Gin ticks both those boxes.
A small-bath gin inspired by the spirit of the Italian Riviera, this couldn’t feel more perfect to enjoy during balmy summer evenings. Incredibly fresh, with notes of thyme, fresh basil leaf and black pepper, there is even a hint of lemon verbena in there – perfect for summer supping!
It’s a wonderful, quite sophisticated choice – so if your dad is a bit of a gin aficionado, this is a fabulous choice! It’s the perfect option for an update on the classic G&T – mixed with an Italian tonic water and garnished with basil, it’s an absolutely delicious (and easy!) cocktail for warm summer evenings. It’s incredible in an Italian Negroni too – just mix 25ml O’ndina, 25ml Campari and25ml Cinzano 1757 Vermouth Rosso in a tumbler glass over ice, stir until cold, then garnish with a basil leaf or some orange peel. We might not be able to visit the Italian riviera this summer – so I think O’ndina might just be the next best thing!
O’ndina Gin is priced at £34 and is available here (UK)
