This is one is on the evening's menu (with Hendrick's of course):


It's expensive, so it better be good.

And was it worth it?

It was kind of amazing. It's got a nice floral, complex flavor, but it overwhelmed the Hendrick's. Fancy and very good, but definitely a treat and not for everyday GnTs.


I've got 2 other to try now, too:

Q and Fever Tree.
Those are about $1 per serving. The Fentiman's was $1.79 per little bottle.

interesting, though I'm not sure how I would like the floral hints. Keep us posted.

Herby/floral. Really nice.

I'm out drinking with clients tonight, otherwise I could be describing both of the other tonics right now. and

Fever Tree is fine, though you'd be hard-pressed to tell the difference between it and generic tonic. Skip it because of the price.


Q is interesting and I need to drink another to make up my mind.



Fentimans is the best and worth it for a snooty good GnT.


Also I love BevMo in California because they have the trees of little sample bottles of booze (lunchables) by the checkouts. I grabbed a few more Gins to try when we were in Anaheim for U2.

quick question for the gin connaisseurs hehe

does Bombay gin (the one in transparent bottles, not Bombay Sapphire) give you headaches?? i get really bad headaches from Gordon's but that's about all the stores here seem to stock (i'm out in the sticks), apart from really bad cheap generic gin, but they do sell Bombay... is it worth trying??

at the moment, i'm off the gin and Pimms is my drug of choice ha

^I don't know Bombay Gin versus Bombay Sapphire.

I tried a little Indigo tonight:

Good. Didn't have a full GnT, just a small swig.


And was impressed by Miller's Gin:

Nice different floral flavor. Quite good.

I also tried a sip of Cucumber soda with gin. Different and tasty. Of course it's hot here, so any booze with cool flavors and ice cubes taste good.

G&T's tonight, just Seagrams. I went all over town looking for nice tonic water after I passed some up earlier today. Of course I couldn't find any, so it's time for some Canada Dry.

I'm sorry I won't see you in Minneapolis. Please drown our sorrows in some gin.

Will do, sir. I'm going to be following that setlist party with much trepidation.

2 disappointing Hendrick's-n-Ts last night.
I know it's Happy Hour, but don't fuck me on the booze if I request top shelf.



(Okay, and my bad for ordering a second one.)

Big meh here. Stick Fentiman's if you want the really good stuff or Schweppes/Canada Dry if you don't.

Tried No. 209 last week. Nice gin!



It's got a little different flavor than juniper. The bartender said it was a bit of cardamom. It was at an Indian restaurant, so yum for G-n-Ts and Indian food!

Not enough love for Beefeater. That's the finest Gin there is.
