Tanquery #10 is easily the best stand alone gin. It's fruitiness is amazing, but it's not sweet, and finishes dry. Plymouth is also fairly nice, and I've seen where they have a Navy Strength at something like 107 proof, but it's NA in the states, I'd love to get my hands on a bottle of that stuff. Their regular stuff is about 82 proof. Bombay Sapphire is a staple anywhere, but if you want a real surprise in a London Dry Gin try Brokers. it's a dry well balanced 94 proof gin at about 15 bucks a bottle. I hate vermouth in my gin, but the Noilly Pratt is the best.

Sorry, I realise a typo in my previous post.

I had cl for ml. 80cl is more than a bottle ....

It should have read
80ml Tanqueray
10ml Noilly Prat
5ml Absinthe Blanche

From "Robert"

Whip Cocktail
This cocktail is well known amongst the naval officers of the Mediterranean Squadron. The ingredients are:
1/8th gill of Absinthe
1/8th gill of French Vermouth
1/8th gill of Brandy
1/8th gill of Curacao
Shake until frozen.
In Egypt they call it "Kurbag", which is the Arabic word for whip.


With Noilly Prat and a good verte, this sounds interestnig.

In case 1930's terminology confuses you: 1/8th gill is approx 18ml or 1 floz; and "shake unitl forzen" means shake with ice in a cocktail shaker until condensation forms on the outside of the shaker, and then strain off into a cocktail glass.

Has anyone substituted Angostura for Peychaud's?


Don't do it, Angostura is not a substitute for Peychauds.

For anyone who was interested in this discussion, but who has not yet managed to locate Peychaud's, we're running a short term promotion of a bottle of Peychaud's free with a two bottle purchase of La Fee here
