Re: The Gin Thread

Has Skull Gin been mentioned? Locally made near us. Just brought a bottle of White Skull Gin over to my dad, a big gin lover, and he approves. Iím not an expert myself but thought the link was worth a share.

Re: The Gin Thread

Have seen the regular line of tonics in most of the supermarkets here; quite expensive! Will look for the Refreshingly Light line.

I tend to agree and do my weekend carbs with regular tonic, but felt that since the Schweppe's Zero was pretty ok, maybe there was something better out there.

Thnx for the tip.

Sugar free stuff almost always disappoints me, I was in 9 months of keto and I'd rather have a real drink that goes below my 30g-Carbs mark than sugar free or / Ersatzsugar(they all have strange bitter or cooling after taste) items.

Have you tried the Fevertree Refreshingly light line of products? Only 5g of sugar per 100ml instead of 9g. If I stick with just a drink of two won't kick me out of keto.

I can recommend Studer gin, particularly the version with alpine herbs.

Apologies if it has been mentioned previously in this thread.

Re: The Gin Thread

Favourite gin is from these great people

https://wearelochness.com/shop/

Lorien also makes excellent absinthe - which is of course, my speciality.

Isn't that the stuff that was banned for causing blindness due to it having too high an alcohol content?



Didsbury Raspberry and Elderflower gin. Scrummy.
