I’m quite partial to gin which, in this day and age, isn’t such an unusual thing. I interested with varieties that go beyond the run of the mill but I do exercise a little caution. For example, earlier this year I was tempted by a ‘elderflower’ gin that was on offer; when I got it home, I reasoned that it was probably on offer because nobody in the right mind would want to return for another bottle!
Tonight’s chance turned out to be more successful – Flor de Sevilla from Tanqueray, which was on offer in Tesco. I’d previously enjoyed their Rangpur, made with additional lime, and this one is even more to my taste. It has a good balance of bitterness and sweetness. I think it would be sickly in large quantities although, given the alcoholic strength of gin, too much is going to make one sick anyhow!
