"The problem with some people is when they aren't drunk they're sober."
- William Butler Yeats
Gin is a sophisticated botanically-distilled alcohol. That's what someone in a smoking jacket and cravat would say while holding a martini glass in one hand and a pipe in another.
We don't own a pipe, smoking jacket, cravat or even the creamy leather chair that has to go with that scenario. We just know we like the herbaceousness (we may have made up that word) of most of the brands we've tried.

Current favorite! Mid-line price. It's not terrifically juniper forward, so it works perfectly for gin drinks that get mixed with other herbs or floral liqueurs.
