Excerpts from an interview with Jared Brown, the Sipsmith Master Distiller titled "If You can only Stand Gin in a G&T, You Simply Haven’t Tasted a Gin You Like"
There are many people who can only stand gin in a Gin
& Tonic. When you come across such a person, how do you
convince them they should change their mind (for they definitely
This is easy. Anyone who can only stand gin in a G&T simply hasn't tasted a gin they like. Imagine going through life only tasting one or two different wines. If you don't like them, you're stuck. Same with Gin except there are exponentially more choices in wine.
The other reason people feel this way about Gin is because they tried a martini cocktail with old, rotten vermouth in it. Vermouth is a wine (anyone who's ever heard me speak is not rolling their eyes and saying, "Here he goes again."). Once opened, vermouth breathes, rots and dies. Then it sits on the back bar or in the liquor cabinet for six more months. Then someone pours it into a mixing glass with perfectly good Gin, strains it into a cocktail glass and serves it. And the person drinking it quickly goes back to chardonnay (which would taste equally repugnant if it was left out for six months after being opened).
What is the second best Gin in your opinion?
I love the classics. In blind taste tests, I always give high marks to Beefeater, Plymouth, Tanqueray. I am impressed with the new Bombay Star of India. Hendricks also surprises me in blind tests. Martin Miller… It's very hard to choose among them. Essentially, I love gin.
