All of my friends know that if there's alcohol involved for an occasion, then mine's a Gin and Tonic, please. I've road tested a few in my time and I like em fruity and dry. Which is odd, because I loathe dry wines and most other 'dry' drinks.....cranberry juice, the real Brut champagnes....odd, huh.
My current gin of choice is Bombay Sapphire, and they have recently opened a distillery and visitor experience not far from here.
Friend Mary Anne's family had a day out at this distillery and returned with a bottle of Bombay East, which is another flavour to stand next to the Sapphire. Knowing my 'thing' for Gin, she kindly decanted some into this cute miniature bottle and saved it for me. It's fab. Mr Dunnit and I have shared it with no-one else, and it didn't take long! We did compare it to the Sapphire and I can't decide if it's a new favourite or a gin for another 'mood'. I can't tell you what's in it that's different. We tried it neat (on the rocks) first so that we could get all connoisseur and pretend we knew what we were doing. I could only tell that there might be some Aniseed involved. Mr Dunnit said it might be pepper (by which I'm going to presume peppercorns). It was dry. And lovely. And the second sip, with tonic, was just as lovely. I know this is looking like some sort of alcohol promotion post, but it's not, really - just a report on an unusual Monday evening...thanks to Mary Anne!
Joining with Elizabeth and Bleubeard this morning, for T Tuesday.
