Banish that inner voice telling you you’re not great with words. You don’t have to be Shakespeare or Stormzy to deliver a killer line. Here’s some of the best messages which have been imprinted on our spirits to inspire your creativity.
When your intentions are of the amorous kind
Our honey gin is the most popular when people want to profess their love, with ‘Will you…Bee Mine?’ and ‘Always Bee Mine’ chosen the most often as people’s personalised quotes. Whether it’s the play on words or the unmistakable love that bees have for their honey that makes it a romantic favourite, people are certainly buzzing to show their love on a bottle of our honey gin.

Just Google ‘Gin Quotes’ for inspiration and you’ll find loads of great ideas, such as GIN, It’s a YES from me, You’re the gin to my tonic and When life gives you lemons, add gin. The one we love the most, however, has to be this personalised message which has popped up a few times on our bottles and which is great for birthday gifts:

Our favourite has to be this one on a Christmas gift of our gin, which combines the recipient’s name with a fun instruction:
When you want to mark a significant date
A bespoke bottle of spirits with the date of the recipient’s special occasion is something that they can keep and enjoy in the years to come. Whether that is the date of their wedding, anniversary or to mark a retirement or milestone birthday. All you need is the date and a short message, such as:
