    Finally got to try Q tonic. Saw it in the store and gave it a try, and it was definitely worth it. Still haven't seen Fever Tree or Fentimans anywhere, but will definitely be sticking with Q until I can.

    I prefer Fever Tree's light Indian tonic, add lime, lemon zest and a few dried juniper berries. There are a ton a great gins out there now but I almost always end up with the old standby, Tanqueray.

    Fentiman's was definitely a step up from Q. Made for the best gin and tonic I've ever had. Glad to finally have found it in stores.

    For me, Hendricks with a slice of cucumber Fentiman's or Fever Tree tonic.

    After hearing so much about Hendricks, I found it to be a bit of a letdown. I enjoyed it, but not as much as Bombay Sapphire or Tanqueray Rangpur.

    It is all relative, both to drink and location.
    for G&T, i usually go Millers, but use westwinds tonic syrup mixed with soda water (for a stronger quinine that schweppes, but not as sweet)
    drinking straight i always go melbourne gin co, on ice with a lime wedge.
    martin depends. millers if going for a citrus twist. half tanq half tanq10 if going to a classic martini. and i go for westwinds sabre if going dirty
    and tanq or melbourne gin co for negroni (depending on vermouth)

    never bombay, far too spicy

    and hendricks isn't my thing unless doing very specific cocktails

    from scratch cocktails, not standards.
    anything where i feel the botanicals suit.
    i had cucumber salt once, so that was used to rim a glass, and i felt hendricks was the spirit of choice for that.
    a few vermouths lend themselves well to hendricks over other gins too.

    Old Raj and Fever Tree. Once in a while, Tanqueray and Fever Tree.
