Have you guys tried Broker's gin? Marginally more expensive than Beefeater and seemed very good so far in a Gin & Tonic and London Buck.

^ I love Broker's. Not always easy to find here in the States, though.

I'm a big fan. And the hats from old bottles seem to find their way onto other spirits.

Guess I have to grab a bottle of the regular 40%/80 proof Beefeater and reevaluate most gin cocktails. Nonetheless, I prefer the 94 proof Beefeater over 80 proof Tanqueray in most cocktails.

94 proof Beefeater IS regular Beefeater. Certainly the only version I've ever seen, I had no clue they made a watered down version in some markets. A lot of gin is 94 proof or thereabouts by default, just goes back to an old way of measuring proof- you'll see it in more than a few rums as well.

I figured as much, but Wikipedia says something weird.

It is a 47% alcohol product (94 proof) in the US and New Zealand, and a 40% alcohol product (80 proof) elsewhere in the world (including the UK).

Anyway, I'm happy with the 47%/94 proof Beefeater and Broker's, so no need to change.

Just had grabbed the following from Astor Wines and Spirits in New York.
Vieux Pontarlier absinthe (now I can make proper Sazeracs and Corpse Revivers)
Root (delicious amaro-like root tea)

I just polished off my last bottle of Goose Island Mild Winter last night. Good stuff.

Has anyone here had Wasmund's Single Malt Whisky? The info from the website-

Wasmund's™ Single Malt Whisky

Combines the best of the grand tradition of single malt whisky with creative and unique innovations for aging and flavoring that result in a special spirit that has no peer.

At Copper Fox Distillery, we are the only distillery in North America to hand malt our own barley, and the only distillery on the planet to use apple and cherry wood smoke to flavor the malted barley. Our single batch copper potstill produces one barrel at a time and the spirit is non-chill filtered to preserve the complete flavor and essence of the barley grain.


I'd like to try it but at $36/bottle I didn't want to take the plunge without hearing some opinions.

My treasures from Tokyo!! Nothing too expensive, but nothing I can buy in the States, either -- especially those wonderful Scotches; I love both Royal Lochnagar and the Mortlach Flora and Fauna edition.
