What's your favorite Gin?

Post by bbattle » June 11th 2023, 12:37pm

I'm a big fan of gin. I have some favorites that I drink neat; as opposed to being in a martini glass with an olive.

Nolet's is excellent stuff. I also like New Amsterdam. Boodles is pretty good but higher proof so more alcohol taste.

When it gets really hot around here, a cold gin and tonic is mighty nice.

Not much of a gin drinker but Tanqueray when I do. Best cheap gin I used to drink is Seagams extra dry.

I don't have any particular favorite. Had a bottle of slightly chili-flavored one, that was very good - from a very small manufacturer in Northern Denmark. Of the larger brands, I can recommend to try out Plymouth Gin.

Back in my gin days, it was Beefeaters ----- and the potent stuff, unlike the weak stuff sold in the UK or the newer watered down US variety.

If Beefeaters wasn't avail, I would would pass on gin and give my liver something else to be concerned about ie: tequila, vodka, sake, absinthe, rum, ouzo, etc.

I have alot of stories about Ouzo drinking with the flight/detachment crew in Chania, Souda Bay, Crete.
Theo's El Mundo joint to be precise.

Just did a search of the place online and not surprised the prominent COD plaque (arrowed in pic below) was hanging on the wall. And damn if I remember how many signed US bills I've hung in that place.

Oh, apparently it was a popular place for Einstein to frequent as well :)
