I am mostly a bourbon guy but enjoy a gin and tonic in the summer on the patio before dinner, especially with family and frienda. The first time I tried this was on a trip to London, several years ago. Across the street from where we stayed was a bar "The Oliver Conquest". Cozy little place that specialized in gin. Over 300 labels. I was overwhelmed! Struck up a conversation with the barkeep and learned how little I knew about gin. He asked my likes and dislikes and he suggested a g&t with a label unavailable in the states. From his perspective, garnish is very important and this one was garnished with crushed juniper berries and served in a red wine glass. For my second, he said I should try Tanqueray Rangpur garnished with the tradional lime wedge. The name Rangpur comes from the rangpur limes in the botanical list. It seems that tonic water makes a big difference and introduced me to FeverTree Elderflower tonic. OMG what a drink. There's a lot going on with the lime at the forefront but the traditional juniper is there and now elderflower. I'm sold. Had another that evening and been back to try a couple more. We refer to the place as gin school. We surely got schooled and to this day I think of OC when I have a gin and tonic. And, oh yeah Tanqueray Rangpur is my preferred version.
