    My current bar selections:

    Gin: Hendrick's, Beefeater, Martin Miller Westbourne Strength, G'Vine Floraison
    Vodka: Tito's Handmade, Ketel One
    Tequila: Don Julio Blanco, Espolon Reposado
    Whiskey: Jameson
    Misc: Chambord, Pimm's No. 1

    As can be seen be the sheer number of bottles, gin is my drink of choice. Hendrick's is my go-to gin while the rest fill different roles. I'm also planning to pick up The Botanist gin fairly soon.

    Does anyone have recommendations on a good brand of bitters?

    Do we talk about beer here? I know jack shit about non-beer alcohol, but I had all three Rocheforts (6, 8, 10) this past weekend at brunch and it was a great day.

    Some other wines i've had in the past year

    This was really good, the aging effect was quite tasty, and smoothed out the wine big time.

    Another good value purchase (like $22 a bottle)

    Sierra Nevada - always puts out good beers:

    I had a whole summer where my go-to drink was a Ketel one and soda with a couple drops of Angostura bitters in it for flavor. I also remember drinking more nights than not.

    Both of these are decent winter beers - not amazing, but wouldn't say no to drink them.

    I fully support this thread and hope to be an active participant.

    I know about a good deal of teh craft beers, as well as italian and french wines. I can seriously help anyone with real budget italian wines like $10 - to find some good stuff...

    it's usually lionshead or pbr for (always available) beer or my stash of yamazaki 12 year or balvenie 12 year. i should probably expand my tastes beyond beer and whisky
