About Juliet, your blogger
It all started over 20 years ago, when I drank pints of lager and met Bruce who drank pints of real ale; and we got drunk together at a pub in Princetown on Dartmoor. Later on, this wonderful man became my husband, I moved in with him and we started a chaotic life together with three cats and two large dogs, no kids, rebuilt most of our tumbledown house, looked after beloved parents and then semi-retired, slowing down a little and finding time to enjoy a gin and tonic of a summer evening.
We still run our business as copywriters, mainly for the construction industry, which was how and where we really got into gin. For me, gin began with my first ever one-to one interview with the CEO of a window manufacturing business at the Ritz – I was scared to death, so the pr blokes who’d had invited me there for the interview decided to buy me a huge G&T instead of the coffee I’d ordered ….. three of these later, I could’ve interviewed the Queen! (Yes, she who apparently tweeted ‘gin o’clock’ ♯OnIt)!
