The verbal or anal variety?
In some people's cases, these are not necessarily two different options.

I was sorely tempted by their £5 off Tanqueray, but thought I rather test a few before large bottle buying again.

Thanks for the useful link.. btw, do not try the Fever Tree Clementine tonic, it's horrid.

I have never heard of tonic syrup. If you do make it, let us know.. would be interesting to know what it's like.

re Tanqueray - If you ever pass through Luxembourg most of the larger petrol stations like ARAL sell it for around EUR10. We filled up our car with cheap fuel - price was EUR1 a litre until recently and picked up 3 bottles of gin at the same time

Thanks for the tip re Clementine tonic. Will avoid it and will report back on the tonic syrup in a couple of months.

Fever Tree have a Pairing Wheel to suggest which of their tonics complements each gin best.
On the topic of mixing recommendations - there is a neat app called Ginventory, which I recommend.
It has quite a rich library of gins, little stories about them, and how are they best paired with tonics and garnishes.
You can fill up wishlists and favorites.

Re: The Gin Thread

Spotted this Fever Tree gin pairings menu on an Easyjet flight from Fuerteventura - Basel the other day. Now if they only did the same with vodka...

Would you like me To send you a bottle? Squeezy or glass? Probably don't put it in your gin though.

Think we're mixing up GB again here - Deep fried mars bar is a (largely mythical) Scottish delicacy, whilst Salad Cream I presume is English / British - it certainly has no strong connotations with Scotland.

The gin I posted the link to is produced in Scotland (and yes, the local chippy does fried mars bars)

Re: The Gin Thread

I think deep fried mars bars are like pickled eggs in East London... largely for show, mostly purchased on a dare, often chucked up.


So... gin... i found a pink grapefruit and elderflower gin liqueur which is great with a prosecco top.

There's a huge jar of pickled eggs permanently available in one of my local hometown pubs, and the trend this Easter was for deep fried Cadbury's Cream Eggs.

I'll bet it's been the same jar for years. And nooo!!!

Actually, wouldn't the yolk stuff go all funny?

Re: The Gin Thread

Adnams Copper House gin is our current favourite, I buy a couple of bottles whenever I am in Suffolk visiting family. Last week we were in the Netherlands and bought a bottle of Sluis gin, not opened it yet, here’s hoping it is good.

Adnams make gin? I've only ever had their beer. Is it fairly widely available do you know?
