    Talking Favorite Martini Gin

    I'll admit it... I'm a martini junkie. But I'm in a rut. I've played around with the standard crap... Bombay, Gordon's, Beefeater, Tanq, and the Vermouths they stock by the wine shelf in the grocery store for years now. I stuck on Sapphire for awhile, now I'm ready to move on... anyone know of any "must try," lesser-known Gin I can try?

    Plymouth for something different.

    Tanq Ten for something excellent but a little more mundane.

    This is what happens when you have too much gin.

    I always go back to Tanq or Beefeater. Gin has such a bold and distinctive flavor that I just find the brand with my particular flavor balance and stick with it. It's a Coke or Pepsi thing with me.

    Got sick on gin once - felt like I was throwing up a Christmas tree. Haven't had it since.

    Thanks for the suggestions! I forgot about Hendricks... one I haven't tried. May pick that one up when I finish off this bottle of Tanq.

    Perhaps Venture to the Darkside of Martinis ... VODKA ... A good Russian Vodka makes an excellent Martini ... Try Putinka if possible ... or the standard vodkas; Moskovskaya Osobaya, Stolichnaya and/or Imperia ...

    Svedka's my vote on vodka. Rated comparable to Grey Goose, but at half the price.
