I think it's quite easy to tell which style(s) you prefer, very much in the same way as wine.  For instance, if you tasted Bombay Sapphire, Hendrick's and Gordon's back to back you would definitely think they occupied different areas on the taste spectrum and would almost certainly have a clear preference.

From there, I would move onto other gins that had similar or more intriguing ingredients to the one of the above that you prefer.  I prefer Gordon's of the three above, and (for me) Tanqueray is similar flavourwise, but cleaner and fresher.


Have you tried Cotswold Gin? Distilled within walking distance of here and proof that all gins are not the same.

I haven't, James.  I'll keep a lookout for it.  I've tried Sibling Gin, which is distilled within walking distance of my place.  Distinctive, but not my most favoured style.  They mention blueberries and vanilla and I would agree.  I prefer the clean, crisp styles that work better with a lime garnish.  Elegant bottle, though...

Bought some chocolate I'd never heard of before the other day. It was made by Doisy & Dam and they make unusual flavours with superfood ingredients. Very nice, if a little expensive.

That's not chocolate.

Oh hang on, is that a euphemism?

If you're referring to certain leisure activities popular at dinner parties within the M25 area in the late 90s I have no idea what you're talking about. We're more simple folk up here.

A friend served us Opihr gin the other day when we went around for drinks. That was absolutely delicious - it's sort of delicately spiced and makes a truly tasty gin & tonic (not normally a drink I particularly care for).

Our MD went here for his birthday

http://nelsonsgin.co.uk/

Said it was a really good day out and the whole process of changing what is basically vodka into gin was explained and they got to mix their own gin. He came back with 500ml of 49% proof, infused with vanilla, lemon, as well as the young juniper.

With whom, presumably, he ran off with a few days later, never to be seen again.....

Quite partial to a Daffy's with crushed mint and a thick wedge of lime myself.

Beef shin in port, slow cooked with shallots and a little basil.  Best source I found in Staffordshire is the Packington moor farm shop, http://www.packingtonmoor-farmshop.co.uk/.

I limit chocloate and caffeine these days but for quality and price the Tesco own brand 70% and 85% bars are pretty much unbeatable.  Not oversweetened like many and lower in soy product used as an emmolient in the majority of products on sale these days.

Birthday cake flavour protein shake. Unless you really love the taste of icing, just don't!
