Do you buy Hendrick's online. I like it once in a while; but for purity I feel Tanqueray and Miller's have the edge, although Hendrick's is a pleasant taste.

Do you drink it with tonic?

I don't care much for regular Tanqueray. To me it has a distinctly soapy flavor.

No, I don't buy it online and I rarely drink it. If I am at a bar that has it, however, I will order it in a dry Martini or with tonic, but only if I can get a cucumber garnish. Limes and olives destroy the nose of the rose petal and cucumber infusion.

Most of the time, I drink Sapphire. T 10 is my other go-to gin.

Do you know of Fever Tree tonic, I find Schwepps runis it, but most of the time that's all that one can get in the UK, even at better places.

Fever Tree is new to me. I haven't seen it in the States. Canadian Club and Schwepps are the only two tonics I ever see.

One really notices the difference, it has a lot more quinine, is more carbonated, has has no artificial sweetners (rather cane sugar), and is less sweet than Schwepps. I've never had Canadian Club, is that any better?

Fever Tree sounds good. I wonder if I can get it on-line.

I am not sure I could tell the difference between Canadian Club and Schwepps in a blind taste test.

One reason you may have never heard of Canadian Club tonic is because I am screwing the name up.

I am thinking of Canada Dry tonic, not Canadian Club. The later is a whiskey.

In any case, Canada Dry is not much better than Schwepps, I suppose.

Fever Tree was the name of a '60s psychedelic band. I believe they were from Houston.

As far as I know Canada Dry only sell ginger ale in the UK.

Fever Tonic is availble here online http://www.thedrinkshop.com but I don't know whether they ship to the US.

Ginger Ale is probably their biggest seller in the US, as well.
