Default Gin

Any gin drinkers? For the better part of my adult life I've been a bourbon guy, but over the last couple years I've veered off toward gin. To me the difference between rot-gut and top shelf gin is more noticable than with bourbon. Not sure why. Rum, Scotch, Vodka, Tequilla (in that order) rarely get much use at our house, although we stock them all.

Anyway, got a favorite brand?

I'm a novice gin drinker, but it is starting to grow on me. When I go out and drink liquor it is either bourbon + coke, gin + tonic, or vodka + tonic/sprite.

Used to enjoy Gin and Tonics a good bit. Something about it just tasted good. But don't really drink liquor anymore. Mostly stick to beer these days.

I used to be a Bombay sapphire fan, but now if I am having a gin and tonic I prefer Hendrick's with a slice of cucumber as opposed to lime. If you have not tried it this way, give it a shot..it is really good, especially on a super hot day

Tanqueray is a good one for the mid-low price range. Definitely get it whenever I'm out. But spend a few more $$ and it's all about some Hendrick's.

This stuff is great with either gin or vodka. Garnish with said cuke stick.

Hendrix is my go to.

I rarely drink it but one of my buddy's wife likes gun and tonic.

If I do drink gin it is in a gin basil smash during the spring.

I'm a big time gin fan.

Cardinal gin from North Carolina is delicious and my favorite gin overall. The Botanist (made in Islay, known for Scotch) is also quite good as is Bluecoat from Pennsylvania.

Nolet's is an amazing, but pricey gin. I've not mixed it with anything. I don't think I would either except for maybe vermouth to make a martini. It's very floral and I like it just fine neat.

While in Nashville for the Vandy game I visited Corsair distillery and picked up a bottle of their barrel aged gin. The barrels they use previously held their spiced rum. That stuff was amazing, but I'm not sure if they still make it.

Seagram's Extra Dry is the most preferred at all the liquor stores I've ever worked at, and they've recently come out with a peach-flavored which is selling very well. New Amsterdam is starting to pick up speed as well.

Other brands that gin drinkers get without hesitation are Beefeater and Tanqueray. I am not a big gin fan, but we had a tasting of the Bombay Sapphire and I was pleasantly surprised. If you're in SC, look for a store than has mini bottles and try them that way. Otherwise, you may be stuck with a bigger bottle of something you don't like.
