Hi, I’m Sandra, aka Juniper Chick, mainly on Instagram (TheRealJuniperchick) and Twitter (Juniperchick). As my handle suggests, I’m into my gin and my first love was Bombay Sapphire.
Born in Malaysia, I have lived in New Zealand, Singapore and now in the United Kingdom, where I have called London home for the past 18 years. Coming from Asia, I am a massive foodie and enjoy a good glass of wine as well.
Julian (my other half) and I are massive supporters of the gin community and are passionate about our cocktails too. We play an active part in the Negroni Club UK (with Sara Jane Davis) and are managing the Martini Club UK along with Anthony Brimacombe (BrimandTonic).
I’ve seen the industry booming faster than ever with so many interesting gins coming from Scotland. Having a solid history in distilling whisky, I believe that Scottish gins have a lot to offer to the consumers and am proud to be a supporter of the Scottish gin industry.
“I was first introduced to Scottish gin 11 years ago and since then I’ve seen the boom of passion and innovation in Scottish gins first hand with so many excellent choices available. So as a small cog in the gin community, I love doing my bit to help others discover and get to know more of what Scottish gins can offer.”
Sandra Lim, Juniper Chick
