    I switch between Gordon's and Tanqueray with Beefeater tossed in the mix.
    Gordon's also makes a mighty tasty lemon Gin, mixed with pink lemonade it can be trouble.
    I don't buy infused Gins, if I'm drinking a G&T I don't want to taste hints of horse hair and gear lube, I want Gin only.

      I know right? All this name dropping of craft gins. It's freaking grain alcohol people with a little wisp of flavoring. I've got a bathtub up stairs I'm thinking about making my own in. Maybe I'll post a naming poll for Troutman's Gin !!!!

    I mean anything derived from grain can be compared to grain alcohol in its origin. Gin is actually derived from jenever/genever which is made in Amsterdam/Belgium. All of the stuff it that comes after is just flavor profile.

      Kirkland gin is excellent and probably probably Gordon's or Tanqueray.

      Huge fan of Plymouth. Especially in martinis. As a mixer, I often reach for Beefeater.

        I tend to keep Plymouth and Tanqueray around. I never really made a distinction between my favorite for martinis, mixes or with tonics. It all works for me.

        I do like Tanqueray Rangpur in the summertime when I usually drink more tonics and Tom Collins.

          Edinburgh Gin - https://www.edinburghgin.com. Had it when we visited Scotland a few years back. Looked for it all over the place and couldn't find it. My son was a member of a "booze by mail" club and was able to order some. One day on my way home from Colorado, I stopped in a liquor store in Cheyenne, WY and there it was. I now stop there every time I go through Cheyenne! I love the Christmas blend!

            Rieger's out of KC is pretty tasty. Tom Nichol of Tanqueray fame had a hand in developing this gin.

              Our usual go-to is Bombay Sapphire. But our favorite comes from a local distillery called Oakhurst Spirits in Oakhurst, CA, just south of Yosemite. Among the botanicals they use are wild juniper berries from Yosemite National Park. Apparently you're allowed to take a small quantity out of the park, and it doesn't take much for a batch of gin. The gin is excellent, as are all their spirits.

                I generally pick up whatever is in my eye line when picking up “essentials.”
                Vermouth OTOH…Noilly Prat hands down. Even if they are owned by Martini & Rossi.
