Dale,

Fat Guy asked the question I was going to, viz., what do you think I should keep at home to be able to provide mixed drinks? But I was curious that in your answer you specified in particular Beefeater or Tanqueray gin. I've been drinking Bombay Sapphire. Should I switch? And why?

Dear K.

Hi

Fat Guy asked the question I was going to, viz., what do you think I should keep at home to be able to provide mixed drinks? But I was curious that in your answer you specified in particular Beefeater or Tanqueray gin. I've been drinking Bombay Sapphire. Should I switch? And why?

I did not intend to specify brands in that reply I should have just generic zed the reply. Of course Bombay Sapphire is a good brand. at that level , the premium and super-premium it is hard to get a bad gin. It just becomes a stylistic choice. Are you looking for a heavily aromatic gin or a cleaner not so perfumed gin these are personal preferences.
