This World Gin Day (June 11th), why not try a new gin from different places in the world? From India's Jaisalmer Gin to Aviation American Gin - crafted in small batches in Oregon, to the English Cotswolds and Pinkster Gin - each gin offering a different experience.
Aviation American Gin, owned by Hollywood actor and producer Ryan Reynolds, has been voted the world's highest rated gin and has helped establish a new style of American gin - softer and smoother, with juniper in the background and citrus and floral notes in the front - resulting in a really well-balanced gin that is a great base for cocktails.
Jaisalmer Indian Craft Gin is triple-distilled, handcrafted in a traditional copper pot still in small batches at one of India's oldest distilleries, located in the foothills of the Himalayas. Jaisalmer Gin encapsulates the whole of India in one bottle as seven of the 11 botanicals are sourced from all four corners of India. Jaisalmer Gin is wonderful in cocktails and makes a classic G&T, mixed with Indian Tonic Water and a twist of orange.

Add some panache to your wedding day attire with a handcrafted bespoke suit from British tailoring brand, Henry Herbert.
Having mastered the art of bespoke, Henry Herbert is an expert in one-of-a-kind suits (and shirts) to help you make a sartorial statement on your big day. Be it a formal wedding, or relaxed beach nuptials, the London-based tailors offers a wide choice to ensure a sharp and sophisticated appearance whatever the setting.
"It is perhaps a blessing and a curse that there are now fewer rules on how to dress for a wedding," says Henry Herbert. "A blessing because rules can be dull, a curse because they can also help you to navigate a potentially volatile sartorial minefield. Happily, there is one universal truth that applies to all ages, shapes, and sizes whatever the occasion: while fine tailoring always flatters, fashion sometimes does not."

Buying a suit online is easy enough, but buying a suit that fits well and looks good is a little more complicated. Though tailoring is an art, it's also a science of sorts, with endless variables and numbers to input and weigh up. To help, the team at Mens Tweed Suits have compiled a comprehensive list of everything you need to know about buying a suit on the internet.
Know your measurements: Ordering a suit without measurements is like driving blindfolded. The simplest way of finding yours is to measure an existing suit that you like the fit of. Most retailers have instructions for how they measure their garments, but in any case these are the general rules.
Chest: Lay the jacket flat with all buttons closed and run a measuring tape from armpit to armpit. If you don't have a jacket that fits well, have someone measure around the broadest part of your chest (usually around nipple height), under your arms and level with the ground. Keep a finger between the tape and your body to allow for comfort.
