Wow, we are just recovering from all of the second birthday madness that's been going on of late. We want to say a huge thank you to everyone who entered the second birthday hamper draw, you certainly are a creative and talented bunch!
Without further ado we would like to announce the winners of the five Second Birthday Hampers!
THE #CUCUMBERCARVERY COMPETITION
We had a small but perfectly formed pool of creatively carved cucumbers that entered our Instagram competition. The race was very close between two in particular, so much so that we had to put it to a public vote. We asked, you responded and the winner is....
Congratulations to @nzdollynurse! An incredible effort in fashioning not only a gin bottle but also a cup with garnish for her entry! A hamper laden with treats that pair perfectly with gin and back issues of Glory Days are on their way to your picnic blanket!
THE FACEBOOK TAG A FRIEND COMPETITION
Gosh you are a generous lot! Firstly, to be so kind on our Facebook page by wishing us birthday cheer and offering your congratulations on our milestone. We had a wee tear in our eye when we read through all the comments, and want to thank you for all your support.

Congratulations Anne! I hope you enjoy sharing your hamper with "Love TheEarth! We love it too!

And while we had many favourites there was one that was our MOST favourite (or favouritest? Hang on, is that even a word?!). Here is our winning entry, decided on by a panel of expert judges AKA the Glory Days team.
Well done Gilly, you could have won on volume of entries even if you didn't come up with our favourite new gin related word! Would you consider changing your name to Ginny by any chance?

To win a hamper through this competition all you had to do was sign up to our virtual pamphlet easy as that!
