Don’t Clean Your Diamonds in Gin…
Win it & Drink it!
As the old wives tale goes, the best way to clean your diamonds is in gin, but some swear that it’s better to drink it while cleaning your jewellery in soapy water instead –even better if the gin and diamonds are free!
This Autumn/Winter two locally loved independents with a combined 40 years in business, based in the beautiful South West city of Bath, are combining their teams to create an ‘event’ that brings together the locals love of their city, gin, and diamonds!
As locals to Bath know, the Bath and Bristol based jeweller, Nicholas Wylde, is best known for his patented diamond cut, a fact that is plastered across Bath Spa railway station on pastel pink signs which read “the home of the Wylde Flower Diamond®”. This botanical diamond, which features facets in the shape of a flower, is to be the prize of a reassuringly small competition (meaning good odds) which is the work of a collaboration between Wylde and the famous Bath Distillery.
The Bath Distillery are best known for their own ‘Bath Gin’ featuring a winking and cleverly dubbed Virginia ‘Gin’ Austen, who maintains a striking resemblance to the world-famous author Jane Austen, who of course lived and worked in Bath. Their fabulous gin is made on site at their own ‘Canary Gin Bar’ where numerous concoctions are conceived and developed including varied infusions of Bath Gin with cucumber, jasmine, damson, and their newest recipe of hopped rhubarb, a gin that has just been released from Bath’s first distillery in 250 years!
The distillery’s founder, Peter Meacock, struck a friendship with Nicholas Wylde as they bonded over their lifelong love of gin cocktails at his gin bar. Combining their botanical gin, along with Wylde’s botanical diamond, came only too naturally, and a collaborative competition would eventually result with the biggest prize they could muster, a £10,000 Wylde Flower Diamond® inside a 1L bottle of Bath Gin!
To enter the competition, and win the £10K diamond, buy any of the beautiful 70cl bottle of Bath Gin flavours between September 2019 and January 2020; Every promotional bottle’s neck label will instruct you to open the cap to find your lucky ticket inside and enter it’s code at nicholaswylde.com/gin to be in with a chance of winning one of twenty five mini-prizes as well as that very special diamond.
The winner and a guest will get to visit Bath following the announcement in February, visit both business premises for an exclusive tour, meet their founders and sample Wylde Flower cocktails at the popular Canary Gin Bar’s distillery.
These cocktails are also available for you to try right now! These limited-edition tipples feature edible glitter, a mock sugar diamond, and of course a flower to garnish. We think we’ll all pop over to try one this Friday night on a weekend away in Bath!
