I'm nearly out of gin I'd want to use up, just one G&T's worth left of the stuff we mixed last holiday  redface:

Are you sure it isn't soda water, have you checked the label...? whistle:
You know, I used to think it was awful that life was so unfair. Then I thought, wouldn't it be much worse if life were fair, and all the terrible things that happen to us come because we actually deserve them? So, now I take great comfort in the general hostility and unfairness of the universe

I double-triple checked and cleaned out the shop in the village square...  Thumbs:

They were delighted - not getting much trade at the moment... I bought a couple of bottles of wine, some local Olive Oil and some nibbles to help them...

Maybe I'm a Palestine as Nick would put it but I just can't see the big thing with craft gin.  On that holiday we blended 4 very different mini bottles of gin and yes as neat gin they did taste different but mix them with tonic and could I tell the difference?  No
 
And as neat spirit drinks go gin just doesn't cut it compared to vodka, tequila etc mho
