Saw this the other day & thought it sounded interesting.

I haven't tried it yet, I tried the lavender instead...
I hope the cucumber is better than the lavender, cuz the lavender SUCKED; tasted like soap to me, guess I'm just not a fan of the taste of lavender. Smells good though.
Regards, GF.

I like the smell of lavender not so much the taste it belongs in a soap or smell goods for ladies. Cucumber gin sounds good I might have to try it.

Lavender, like a lot of flowers has to be used with a very light hand or it'll become handsoap on you every time. I have a caramelized lavender peach batch going right now that I only used about half what was recommended to me and kept it in the carboy only long enough for the aroma to become obvious but not let it impart much of the flavor.
