    Junipero if you can get it. It is hard find outside of SF though.
    Plymouth Navy Strength is good but strong.
    Sacred if you are in the UK.

    I'd just find a local micro-distiller in your area and go with that really. Gins are very individual in a lot of ways.


    +1 great gin [​IMG]
    only one store in New Orleans carry it.

    I consider that as a go-to women's gin. [​IMG]

    Gordon's Gin?
    Is it a gin worthy to give as a gift?

    The friend is a gin aficionado, so he probably already owns a lot of juniper-heavy gins. Plus, he likes Hendricks. I think one of the modern gins might be a good addition to his liquor cabinet. I love Aviation (particularly in the cocktail for which it is named), but it is definitely on the softer side.

    How do we know he is a gin aficionado? It doesn't sound like it based on the fact that he never had Hendricks, which is one of the most common gins out there and he is drinking gin and tonics.

    definitely not. He usually just drinks whatever the bar has.

    I'd recommend these guys http://www.sipsmith.com/

    Came in hear to recommend this. Not expensive, but excellent, although it might be a little difficult to get hold of outside the UK.

    You probably want something soon, but in a few months you should be able to buy gin from the New York Distilling Company which should be pretty good stuff, and they should be selling some pretty unusual styles.
