    not sure if it can be found in Ireland other than The Fat Duck in Bray

    I'm afraid that's Bray, Berkshire, not Wicklow. It's Heston Blumenthal's restaurant.

    Ah - sorry for my ignorance then :o. And thanks.

    - Subscription also seems to go to UK addresses - not sure if adresspal would do.

    I've heard really good things about it, but haven't tried it myself. I live in Copenhagen, and know of a few bartenders using it.

    I've had Herbie 'Gin' in Copenhagen, we stocked it at a hotel I used to work in. 0.5% abv, it tasted like lavender water and would have been nice in a tall glass of ice to the brim, not mixed with tonic and sold for €13.50 a drink like we did.

    That's the silliest thing I've ever heard.
    This is flavoured water.

    Richmond Marketing sent us in a couple of bottles of the Seedlip Garden 108 ages ago. Might be worth contacting them for stockists. I never tasted it however.

    Seedlip, the world's first non-alcoholic distilled spirit.
    He began experimenting with distilling after reading The Art of Distillation, a volume published in 1651, which contains a number of non-alcoholic herbal remedies

    Bought a bottle in Dunnes today, they only had #94 spice.

    Just tried it and I'm not really convinced. It tastes overwhelmingly of Cardamom. I really like Cardamom, but it's a bit like cold mulled wine. Weird!
    Will have to experiment a bit. They recommend a garnish of Pink Grapefruit, I only had lemon. A different tonic water might make a difference, too.
    The other problem I have with it, is that the bottle is somewhat hard to pour.
