Great British Gin Scratch Off Poster
Some of us may already have tasted the majority of gins in the UK – all in the quest of perfection of course. But how many of us have kept a record of which gins we have and haven’t tried?
This genius poster allows you to scratch and change the colour of the brands you have tried, until you have collected them all. A bit like an adult Pokemon perhaps!
Even if you have tried some or most already, we recommend starting ‘from scratch’ (sorry) – it will be more fun that way!
