Hendrick's Gin with St. Germaine Tonic


Sounds awesome. What's St. Germaine Tonic? Do you combine the two or is it an off-the-shelf product?

St Germain is a elderflower liquor by itself that retails under 40usd. For the lack of better description, it has a honey-lychee flavor that puts Soho to shame, but more sweet, more floral, and more complex. It is well known for versatility with cognac, rum, Hendrick's gin etc etc.., but I usually drink it just on the rocks.

I missed the announcement of the sale for Dry Fly Bourbon this week. Frown There were only 124 bottles available for sale at one state liquor store, and people were lined up the night before.
This is the first batch of the first bourbon made in WA state since Prohibition. If anyone has tried it, I'd like to know what your impression was.

Managed to find a bottle at last, halfway across the country. I have some friends getting together in a couple weeks and will pop it then. Will let you know. I guess it will be 3 years until the next batch is sold. Smile

Sounds great. How was that Ardbeg Alligator?


I always love Port Ellen. This bottle is certainly very good but not as good as the annual Diaego bottles. the last one I had was the 9th release and that was something pretty special. 11th is a bit more expensive still (they skipped the 10th release in the US).

As for the Alligator, this must be my fav Ardbeg now. 10 YO is my go to drink but this is about double the cost and well worth it unfortunately. Very well made and well judged.

Thanks. I agree on the 10y, it's one of my favourite basic single-malts. Silly me passed the Alligator when i saw this at a local shop. I think that Ardbeg's special bottlings are well worth the price at some 60-80€, compared to other distilleries releases >150€.
