Gin appreciation thread

What's your favourite gin and how do you like to drink it?

Pic is of a gin I got a gin festival that I brought over to drink with my family last weekend. Amazing either neat or with ginger ale - unsure how it would be with tonic.

I really enjoyed it - it was mostly small batch gins at the festival anyway.

What gins would you recommend instead user?

I really liked beefeaters gin
Tanqueray Rangpur is really not good stay away from that. Nice thing is good gin is cheap relative to other liquor
What was that gin infused with?

Ive been thinking about infusing some nice rum lately to make it delicious to sip
What would you guys do for this desu

I've not had beefeaters in years - I should probably try it again. Is that your default gin? I think my default is maybe a hendricks with cucumber. Although Aldi does some really nice gins in collaboration with Eden Mill that are super cheap.

I've never seen that type of Tanqueray gin but I will avoid. I really dislike Makar gin (even though its made in my hometown).

The gunshot gin is infused with a bunch of different spices - mainly cinnamon and cloves I think?

Infused rum would be tasty. I don't know why but I think mango or pineapple might be good?

Harris Gin is the king of gins.

Its so hard to find though when you're out and about at pubs/restaurants . I found it once in a bar and spent way way way too much money that night.

Also the bottles are so pretty I save them and use them to serve tap-water in at dinner parties. People get really impressed.

Yeah beefeaters is my go to! Tried a taste test between that, tanqueray, and bombay and it was by far the best. The tanqueray rangpur had rangpur limes in it and bombay the lemon. The lemon and limes infused took away from the flavor amd only added a harsh acidity though i have never tried hendricks
And yeah im definitely thinking something fruity. Sipping on a rum thats like a caramel apple would be top.
Might try mixing a bit with a piece of candy honestly lol

Hendricks is lovely - it's very 'cooling' if that makes sense? It needs to be served with cucumber though!

That's interesting about the infusions. I love lime in gin and tonic so maybe I would like the tanqueray? Not a fan of bombay saphhire desu.

Some toffee would be nice to infuse rum with if you were looking at candy/sweets

This looks really cool. I've never tried anything with spruce but I'd imagine it'd be quire refreshing?

I'm slowly getting into drinking gins neat - some of them are a bit harsh!

CMV there's no point spending money on super premium gins.

In the UK, that generally means ones above £30

I got into spruce with some pine-y beers--definitely refreshing, good for clearing out the sinuses. The same distillery does a cedar gin as well, smells great but tastes awful imo

Methnerd

The spruce stuff sounds great - really unusual!

I've not came across anything like that here (Scotland). Most gins are wild plant/ sea plant infused - not that that's bad - just there's a gap in the market.

TurtleCat

You can get lovely gins for under £30 in the UK.

There's a couple of gins out there that are worth going over £30 (I think someone posted Harris Gin earlier) - but I'd always recommend going somewhere and trying those gins before spending.

Never tried it. Looks like something I would take to a house party if I wanted to get wasted but not drink something disgusting.

So sounds good!

Crisp. Refreshing. Hint of citrus on the finish. Great with tonic and lime or neat.

I always think bombay is just kinda a step above Gordon's - there's much better stuff out there.

I've had pic related. It was nice and interesting to try it for historical value but it's on the sweet side and I prefer dry.

In Merica there is a prairie organic gin I quite fancy. Not too botanical but interesting on the palate. Also Few makes something called breakfast gin which is dank. Other than that I usually opt for good ol tanquarey when making cocktails, and by cocktails I mean negronis and dry martinis

I buy Fords when I can find it, a lot of places near my stopped carrying recently so I'm back to Bombay Sapphire or Gordons depending on how much I feel like spending

So many recommendations for bombay saphire/gordons/beef eater in this thread.

I guess Veeky Forums generally doesn't have a good taste in gin?

My biggest problem with gin is that the cheap £10 Aldi stuff tastes as good as if not better than the expensive £25+ stuff so why bother with anything else? Except maybe Ophir, it is massively different but even it is only about £18

You might want to try some Jenever. For me it's the original recipe of Gin which was only produced when the english couldn't access the Jenever market anymore due to war.

beef eater is the best for your dollar without sacrificing taste but if you are that much of a poorfag then its better to just drink vodka since gin only really gets going in 30$+ category

If you want candy type of rum, go with vanilla. There are baker's emulsions that you could cook into a simple sugar and just mix it in as a flavored syrup. They're the best lazy flavoring stuff out there, and some of the flavors are very difficult to achieve through infusion. I like this brand, but I have only used some of the nut and fruit emulsions.

A mix of vanilla butter and caramel would probably end up like a butterscotch if done right. A little goes a long way.

You can get good cheap gin - it's just that stuff like bombay saphire/gordon's/beefeater isn't all that great.

If you're setting the bar at under $50 (so about £35 quid) I can get really nice gins for that price.
