Just want to point out that for one hundred and forty bucks, a guy could buy about 10 bottles of Beefeaters and a good sized jar of olives.
You know, just say'n...
Orrrrr, skip the nasty-ass olives and put those savings towards upgrading to Hendricks, or The Botanist if you can find it locally.
Just sayin' 😉👍
The hell you say!
Certainly, I can find it locally--have a bottle of it sitting over there on the shelf--not a fan.
I'm okay with Beefeaters, don't mind regular Tanqueray (No. 10 is over-rated), and I would be fine and damn-dandy with Gordons (good enough for Ian Fleming) and even Fleischmann’s (America's first gin).
That said, a Martini without olives and cocktail onions (alternating two of each on the cocktail pick in this precise order: olive/onion/olive/onion), would be akin to simply guzzling gin straight from of the bottle, at room temperature, wrapped in a brown paper bag, out back, by the damn dumpster!
On the other hand, if you ever come across a bottle of St. George Dry Rye Gin, my free advise to you is run like hell in the other direction (it's paint-stripper ;- )
Huh. I have a hard time finding Botanist in a lot of the stores near me, but I'm a fan.
I just don't like olives in just about anything lol
It's a personal (dis)taste thing
Don't think I've ever had Gordon's, but always looking for new ones to try
Obligatory pic, not fancy like yours, just my gin shelf lol
So you're probably not interested in my famous Cream Cheese and Minced Olive Cracker Spread recipe? Oh well...more for me!
Actually, I like your Gin shelf --and the rest of your stock as well. Now that I see the bottle, I think I have not tried The Botanist! I see that Total Wine is carrying 750ml bottle for thirty-seven and change, so I shall add it to my list and report back after having a proper snort ;- )
No offense, but that spread sounds like a nightmare to me haha
I'm not a heavy drinker, but I do like to have decent stock on hand when I want a drink 😉
That sounds about like an average price for it. Good luck, hope you enjoy it!
(also would endorse the Drumshanbo Gunpowder gin pictured. But not the St Lawrence in the back, and haven't opened the Roku to try yet)
I'm not a heavy drinker either; only weigh about 200 lbs--pretty close to right for my height and age!
Try the Roku - it's a lovely gin! Full of character.
People often say that about my Cream Cheese and Minced Olive Cracker Spread!
Probably the next time I have a drink :)
It was a very recent purchase
Yeah, well, many people are often wrong about many things 😅
Yes, typically the wankers who keep commenting on my comments!
The Roku is a lovely gin - on my tastebuds, but then I also like The Botanist. I like a gin with a bit of bite. Gin Mare is also a nice one to try - Spanish. And I'm quite partial to our "local" gin...
What knife is that knife and how does it knife so good?
It's a Mcusta Tsuchi. It comes in two versions - large and small. This is the smaller version. It has a hammered effect laminated Damascus VG10 blade. One of my favourite EDC knives.
Just became one of mine as well. Looks so raw!
