Whitley Neill Rhubarb and Ginger gin, plus 3-4 drops of Angostura bitters, plus ginger ale, ice and a slice of lime.

It’s what they drink in heaven.

I quite liked that when I had some a couple of years ago but my wife didn’t. I got some Edinburgh gin rhubarb and ginger for Christmas and that seems a bit more delicate in flavour. Very nice

I have been trying to find Whitley neill gooseberry gin for months (not making special trips or anything) but cannot find it anywhere in stock. Booths used to carry Edinburgh gin gooseberry and elderflower which was nice but not as good as the Whitley straight gooseberry one

I love the flavour of violets (I’m a Parma Violets addict) but violet gin can be tricky - sometimes the taste of violets can be completely overwhelming.

This Boë violet gin is really subtle though, meaning you can have more than one glass of it without feeling sick!

Well I didn’t know that. There is a gin manufacturer just around the corner-ish on the marshes. Not sure if they produce the spirit or just add local botanicals.

I wouldn’t swim in the bay despite claims of the water’s purity. Hopefully the alcohol will settle my fears. £36. A bottle. It will need to be good.

Manly Spirits Gin, Sydney Australia. 43% alcohol.
Flavoured with the usual suspects plus finger limes and sea lettuce. Very nice after a day painting the laundry

Lighthouse Gin locally produced at Martinborough over the hill from where I live. It’s made in the campus of Martinborough Vineyards. Very oily with navel orange zest and Yen Ben lemon notes.

One of the originals and best in my opinion, with that lovely moorish taste with the beautiful combination of juniper berries, coriander, angelica and liquorice.
Many have tried to emulate, or try and enhance by adding unnecessary spices or flavourings, but very few if any have succeeded in my opinion.

Not Gin or Whisky, but we don’t have a Vodka thread.

A lovely Japanese vodka from Nikka (who do a nice whisky too):


Nikka Coffey Vodka. Yum. Very.

It’s so good, Malfy Lemon Gin used to be my favourite.
