I've enjoyed my Graze boxes so I thought I'd ask Graze for their insights into starting out. Here Ben Jones, Co-Founder of Graze, gives you his freshly prepared wisdom. Thank you very much, Ben.
5 Bits of Wisdom – Ben Jones, Co-Founder of Graze
1. "Spiritual – good things happen to good people, in any start-up you always need a little bit of luck so be nice to everyone and boost your karma.
Last night I learnt how to distill gin. From Sam Galsworthy, the engaging co-founder of Sipsmith Gin in Hammersmith. Thank you, Sam.I was introduced to Prudence, their beautiful copper pot still. She is a curvaceous and lovely toy, with lots of levers and piers and portholes, through which we could peer to see the botanicals steeping - liquorice, orris root, juniper, cassia bark, Spanish lemon and orange peel...
I was also re-introduced to Sipsmith's excellent gin, sloe gin and barley vodka. I've been drinking the gin for a while now, and the sloe gin makes a superb gift for elderly fathers.
