The heart of the site is the forum area, including:
So which brand should I offer guests and which should I drink (when no-one is watching)?
Bombay Sapphire offered......Gordons drank.
Bombay Saphire for me!
Thirded for Bombay
Bombay Sapphire, as bought in duty free. 48% proof. Delicious and lethal!
Bombay offered - Hendricks drank, with cucumber of course.
Funnily enough, I brought a bottle of BS back from Cyprus and simply cannot taste the difference between that and an 'own brand' label
Gordons for guests and potcheen and coke for when they've left.
Plymouth Gin - for both
Bombay or Gordons for either purpose - interchangeable depending upon your stock levels.
Also use a slice of lime from time to time, instead of lemon, for a change.
Bombay Sapphire for the guests
And a nice Tanqueray No 10 secretly stowed away for yourself..... The Cloggies are pretty good at mind-relaxing substances, after all!!!!!!!
Hendricks for guests who can tell the difference. Hemdricks for the first one yourself with Gordons to follow on with.
Lime is what a lot of trendy bars use - it's just not the same at all in my book.
I find Tanqueray's a little harsh to be honest.
Bombay for me and Tesco's finest for the guests, with lime - it disguises a multitude of sins.
A former CO of 7RHA used to have 'gin and tonic' which was made from tonic and a slice of lemon. He found it put his guests at ease that he appeared to be drinking and his officers on their toes because they knew he wasn't.
