Tanqueray - my 'go to' gin - bought in bulk (yes really - how sad!) when it's on offer.
Hendricks is lovely - slight hints of rose petal and cucumber but dearer.
Tanqueray No 10 is the nicest Tanqueray - but very pricey - (good b'day present though)
Latest find is Mason's Gin - Yorkshire Tea Edition - definite spice and orange undertones - very good indeed but pricier than the 2 above.
Norfolk gin is also good (clove spicing) and comes in a nice stone bottle - but it's the dearest of the lot.
The last 4 are all drunk neat as snifters like single malts. I only put tonic with the cheaper Tanqueray and (if I'm a bit skint) Gordon's (too weak really) and (if I'm really broke) Aldi's own label silver medal gin (which is actually quite nice!)
So now you know that I am old soak with a stash of gin in the cupboard - hope I can still be in your gang. I am sober for most of the day - honest.
