A salute to our female superheroes

She’s the one who brought you into this world. Who nursed you, watched over you and witnessed your first steps with a smile on her face. You two have a bond that goes beyond blood, past the merely physical. She’s unique and deserves to know it.

“The only love that I really believe in, is a mother’s love for her children”, said Karl Lagerfeld. But isn’t the opposite – the unconditional love of a child for its mother – equally important and desirable? Let’s face it, we are lost without her. In the words of Kate Winslet: “It doesn’t matter how old you are, or what you do in your life, you never stop needing your mom.”

Mother’s Day is one of many days to honour that most special woman. Or any mother, for that matter. Not only because motherhood is one of the most demanding jobs in the world (not to mention immensely underpaid), but also because the survival of humanity kind of depends on the existence of present and future mothers. It’s as easy as that.

I’m all for unconditional love – my gin wouldn’t exist without it. So pass on this sweet, vanilla-infused surprise to your favourite female. Put your personal heroine on a pedestal, let her know you have her back. It may be a small gesture, but believe me, one that means the world to her.

Fly to my shop to get your bottle(s) of vanilla infused Sir Edmond Gin.
