we have locally brewed budweiser and PBR licences now, hard to get the real anymore. The licences are some of the worst beers I've ever tasted. That Hamm's looks good Cool

I need to drink more lately to take my mind off the end of the world. Think I'll get a box of Great Northern, I can't afford to keep drinking Asahi with the chance of being layed off with no pay (casual/hourly wage worker here with no sick pay)

been drinking this beer from trader joes, boatswain double IPA. $5 for a sixer and 8.4% tastes pretty good too.

Sainos is low on booze, I wanted tanqueary but they delivered Bombay London dry. I don’t like Bombay sapphire, tastes too floral. Anyone know if this other Bombay is more regular or does it still have a kick ? I’ll back it or give it the dustman first Xmas otherwise.

Bombay is less floral than Sapphire, should have at least two botanicals less if i'm not wrong.

If you like Tanqueray, should be ok. Sapphire it's more similar, although much worse, to Tanqueray 10

I was thinking I’d move this whole shipment to one restaurant but unsurprisingly orders have been low this week so I’m going to have to drink a few myself unfortunately

Had this on Sunday and it was fantastic, ordered a few of the others from low intervention as I liked it so much.

Look for "navy" strength for a kick.
stay away from generics like Bombay and the Standard Tanqueray. Locally sourced is always a better choice.
I prefer the more citrus based gins - can't get on with floral/oriental flavours.
We did a Gin Tasting course on Holiday last year, All to do with matching the tonics.
We always have 5/6 bottles rotation (2 Kids!!) current favourite is Hadrians and Ki No Bi (had to be Smiling)
