International G & T Day… one of the great days of the year. It’s like Christmas, your Birthday or Anniversary, it just needs to be celebrated. So how are you planning on marking this occasion, or what are you planning on celebrating the day with?

Well, here at Dads Stuff HQ we’re sampling a special drop from the remote Scottish Island of Islay. You may have seen it before (it is available in most Australian bottle shops) if not, you can read more about the amazing Botanist Gin right here.

The great thing about gin is that there’s so many ways to drink it, and each gin has a different suggestion of how to enjoy it. So, with that in mind, here’s two suggestions for your Botanist Gin.

The Botanist G&T 


  • 30ml The Botanist Gin
