Snippets of sips and snips along the journey

Many emotions and what sometimes felt like hallucinations were experienced on the Darlington Magical Mystery Tour.

INSPIRATION in creating a gin looked like serious fun.

REALISATION was the fact that the market was like Muizenberg beach on a New Year’s Day. Is there ANY bit of open sand left for us to perch on?

EXASPERATION was finding that it is the smallest things on our journey that presented the biggest challenges.

GRATIFICATION was encountering some incredibly helpful people on our road, some of whom not only filled the pot-holes, but added tarmac, road markings and street lights.

EXHILARATION on hearing that a rather respected “gin person” from the UK, and without us being present, was quoted as saying, “an excellent gin indeed”.

ADMIRATION – a sense of mutual admiration in that in spite of our having different skills to contribute, and no shortage of independent thought, we always ended up taking the stand that was best for the brand.
