Last Days of Summer

September 13, 2019

It was the Georgians who came up with the concept of an English country garden and nurtured its popularity in the 18th century.

It is an integral part of the Broken Clock Vodka ethos and story ...the idea of lingering deliberately to enjoy pleasure and breathing in the smell and flavours of dewy grass, rose petal and slow ripening orchard trees.

And it seems particularly appropriate that we have spent a few days exploring the expansive, Georgian, landscaped gardens at Chiswick House this week just as Summer seems to be persisting and hanging on for a few final sunny days before the inevitable turning of the seasons. The flowerbeds have turned and the leaves are beginning to fall along the abundant tree lined promenades... but the last roses of the year are still flourishing and basking in the September sunshine.
