What I Didn't Buy Wednesday

My friend, Diane from Nottingham brought me a new bottle of gin. 
Her husband, Gren introduced me to the Sipsmith lemon gin when I was over there a few years ago. Since we cannot get the lemon variety here, they have been keeping me supplied. When she came in June, Diane brought another brand of the lemon. She wanted me to let her know what I thought of it. 

Mindy and Justin came over for "happy hour". Mindy said I needed to do a blind taste test.
So that's what I did. Although I liked the new gin, I was able to pick out the Sipsmith right away. I am in no way a connoisseur of gin. But, as I told Diane, I think I have a sentimental attachment to the Sipsmith since Gren introduced it to me. 

Do you think it's bad to have a sentimental attachment to alcohol??

So that's what I didn't buy this week. But oh, I'm buying something big---soon! Really big! I'm at the beach this week and want to make sure that when I order it---it doesn't arrive before I'm home to receive it! Ahhh, but that's all I'm saying. That will be my "What I Buy Wednesday" story for next week. 


  1. I like Sipsmith too! It's funny how they all taste different isn't it? Have you tried Hendricks? I like that - a lot! I also love to use Merchants Heart Hibiscus tonic water as my mixer - it just adds a little extra something without being overpowering. Not to mention the fact it turns the drink a lovely pale pink!

  2. Sipsmith sounds fab, wish is was available here. I recently tried Hendricks which Deb mentioned in her comment. Our friends told us about it at dinner. It was quite tasty but I still prefer hubby's choice - Bombay Sapphire. Give it a try.
