    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.

    Yes actually, but there are only four seasons for G&Ts.

    I do enjoy a Beefeater martini.

    wu7y Reminds me of a poem, usually attributed to Dorothy Parker…though it seems unlikely that she said it, and also never wrote it down. Still, it’s humourous.

    “I like to have a martini,
    Two at the very most,
    After three I’m under the table,
    After four I’m under the host.”

    I tried Dry Fly gin once. They are a hometown brand about 4 miles from me. Didn't particularly care for it but still have it in my cupboard. Might need to give it another shot.

    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.

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

    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!

    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.

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

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

    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.

    Agree SmokinFool - so many bottles in across the board. Bourbon/whiskey, vodka, gin. Even beer - everyone is in the game.

    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 !!!!
