Received this one as a gift. Haven't yet got around to trying it.

edit - i can't see the amazon links i've embedded, can anyone else?
Neither can I. Copy and paste an Amazon link and it gets embedded as a media link which doesn't show with some browsers. Try Control-K instead.

My partners birthday next week and looking at something “different” for a gin

we have a couple of dozen bottles already and have been to Liverpool and Manchester and made our own, but just wandered I’d anyone had any suggestions of a good gin and matching tonic that I could get for her

Our favourite “day to day” gin tends to be a Hendricks, but we have loads of others that we keep picking up, with these being the four we have “on the go” at moment

View attachment 1345656

Our favourite was always Hendricks now we absolutely love Gin Mare, similar in its clean palette botanicals are herb based and it’s simply stunning served with piles of ice fresh rosemary a squeeze of lime and we use fever tree light unflavoured tonic, it is in our opinion outstanding and a cut above Hendricks, would be interested to see how you think it compares, think I deserve one now.....

Best one we've had recently is the Kew Gardens Organic Gin. But they seem to have stopped making it (possibly COVID-19 related).

My go to is Star of Bombay or Plymouth, but my bargain gin buy is only available abroad or on British Airways (possibly other airlines) - Gordon's Yellow Label Gin

It's usually about £12 a litre.

Bought Mrs Flashy a bottle of Opihr and some Fever Tree tonic for her birthday. She's not keen – too peppery. Inclined to agree with her, although while it wouldn't be my first choice after tasting, I don't mind it.

End result is that I've got myself a bottle of gin for my wife's birthday.

Perfect time of year to crack open a 2019 bottling of homemade damson gin, no mixer needed. Warming and syrupy, a little bitter yet a layer of sweetness. It’s quite complex tbh

Now that sounds like an interesting flavour. When are you opening it? Just to advise us if it's any good.

No idea, it's "for Christmas" I'm told, no idea when that starts, will report back when it's opened

FYI 1l bottles of Bombay Sapphire is a bargain at £20.00 in Tesco
