    I'd agree with this. Tried it a few days ago
    Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, vodka in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming, "WOO HOO what a ride!"

    I got a bottle of brockmans as part of my leaving gift from work, very nice. Heading to the south west soon and there is a gin distillery in Newton Stewart that uses seaweed as part of the botanicals, sounds interesting.

    Scotland can be a beacon, within these islands and beyond, for a socially just and sustainable society. Whilst there are many priorities which will require independence, there is also much that can and must be done now by the Scottish Parliament and the Scottish Government.

    Brockmans is nice. My folks were over in Gibraltar and brought me a bottle back as it was dirt cheap.

    Iíve heard good things about that one from Newton Stewart, Hills & Harbour Gin.

    My 3 top gins currently, in no particular order, are:

    Kinrara https://www.theginkin.com/2018/03/15...ish-highlands/

    Verdant https://www.verdantspirits.co.uk/pages/home

    Le Tribute https://www.urban-drinks.co.uk/le-tr...-set.html?av=1



    Love them all served neat, but if they have to be mixed then just with a touch of either Fever Tree Med Tonic or East Imperial Burma Tonic.

    As some have said already, the delight is in the gin and there's no real need to dilute with a load of tonic.

    I was over in Finland last year with work and was introduced to Napue Gin whilst over there. It has won a host of awards worldwide and I have to say it is one of the best gins I've come across. I enjoyed it equally neat or with a small splash of tonic with a rosemary sprig.

    Leith Gin is nice!

    I think anyone who drinks gin and tonic is kidding themselves on that the the new subtle flavoured gins are worth spending money on. Tonic is too strong a mixer to really appreciate the difference.
    Straight or with soda yes, then the flavours can be appreciated.

    Think that's fair comment.

    The botanicals and the like in gins get drowned out by a tonic, whether it's Fever Tree or a standard Schweppes.

    That's not to say there is anything wrong with a G+T, an absolute classic of a drink and superbly refreshing on a hot day. But probably worth noting that it's more sensible to spend on the tonic rather than the gin.

    I tend to drink gin most in a martini, as an aperitif, when out for dinner. Not sure what gin works best with the vermouth so am happy to get recommendations. My default is Tanqueray No.10 or Edinburgh, if stocked.
    There's only one thing better than a Hibs calendar and that's two Hibs calendars

    Picked up some of this on Harris when buying their gin. It's very good, as is the gin! (Mixed or separately.)

    A classic drink indeed. I'm perfectly happy with Gordons and Schweppes but Tanqueray is a favourite too. Now I'm living in Thailand been messing around with gin cocktails, lovely!

    No I don't agree with that all, been on several gin classes and tasting sessions and proved beyond doubt that tonics like Schweppes and britvic are harsh and spoil the flavoured gins whilst others don't.

    I'll keep an eye out for that, though it looks like it may need to be an online purchase.

    I like tonic as a standalone. with a few dashes of Angostura bitters. Always keen to find the best tonic to go with the bitters.
