    Moving to london in 5 days for uni and I want to bring some spirits so I don't have to pay London prices, I pretty much exclusively drink gin and tonic, but I figure some variety is alright.

    Currently have

    Couple bottles of Gordons gin
    Grey Goose
    Few bottles of Bicardi gold
    a few different bottles of smirnoff like whipcream and marshmallow flavour
    2 bottles of evan williams
    dekuyper triple sec

    Figure I should get some jaeger and some Liqueurs too. I pay untaxed american prices so price isn't too prohibitive.

    And how are you going to transport all that stuff?? And you do know that you may have to pay tax on all that stuff...

    Um.. when you order online, do you pay some kind of London tax?

    And re: topic, unless you have more specific ideas, there are a few home bar threads floating around.

    Don't order it online, I can buy it from the american military base where I don't have UK taxes. Ideally spirits which women like to drink (hense the smirnoff).

    Aah..thought you were flying in from outside the EU and had updated your location on your avatar already...

    I prefer Stoli as a benchmark vodka.
    And I don't really do the flavored vodka...outside of Stoli vanilla..on occasion..with 7up or sprite

    At first I thought this was a request for booze suggestions to pair with sea urchin roe

    I've never developed much of a taste for uni. Maybe partly because it looks so fecal.

    Nah ill fill it with $6 for 1.75l svedka, save a bit more money. I can get it, I buy it from the american military base not duty free. Bottles cool, but I don't like whiskey much.

    Decided I need tequila, jaeger and maybe malibu or kalua. Bought another bottle of triple sec, 1l of beef eater, 1.75l of gordons and 1l of smirnoff marshmallow.
