I wonder what 'handcrafted' means here? Did they cut a lump of solid gin from a tree, and using techniques passed down through generations of artisan craftsmen, bottle it? Or did some of the workers in the factory have hands, and used them to switch things on and carry things around?

Any idea how this compares to the EG liquor version? We found that one too sweet, although it was only 20% IIRC.

Quince gin they sell looks interesting.

Don't forget that Aldi have their winter gins in store now. Couple of award winners in there... all below £20 (in fact their straight up London Gin just won Gold at some awards - £10! )

Also, big recommendation for this tonic water. Works a treat with softer gins! Well tasty....

I can never see past Schweppes Slimline. I have tried the expensive ones but always come back to Schweppes Slimline for a sharp tonic

Hipsters have ruined beards, now they're ruining gin.

I can see your point re:beards. A little lost on the gin thing though. Do you wander around showing off your bottle of gin? And now everyone is waving a bottle of gin? Or do you like smelling of gin, but now everyone with a beard and a neat haircut smells like you?

Personally, I used to love a nice bit of omega rich fish but now every tom, dick & harry is bloody eating it - improving the availability, reducing prices, naming themselves after it on hot deals forums - I'm sick of it!

can't drink it any other way. Really dislike the taste of "full fat" tonic now. Think slimline shows off the flavour of the gin better too.

That is a liqueur (hence the sweetness, never tried it but a friend said the same as you, that it was sickly sweet) and this is, as far as I know an infused gin. Shouldn't be anything like the liqueurs from Edinburgh Gin but I've never tried these.

Expired now...

Rhubarb...

How does this compare to Edinburgh gin version of this flavour apart from the abv difference

Sometimes reading the list of ingredients, I don't know whether to eat, drink or shampoo my hair with this stuff.

If you really want a fantastic rhubarb gin try 'Slingsby's Rhubarb Gin' with Elderflower tonic.
Its not cheap but a really nice drink, reminds me of the old Rhubarb and custard boiled sweets

I'm entirely lost on the fish analogy, which is analogous to zero unless hipsters managed to cross breed fish and offer various uniquely pointless flavours of fish at higher prices. I was referring to the myriad of emerging flavours of gin which bastardise the original for the purpose of fashion and higher cost and to take advantage of what they assume is a naive user base with more money than brains.

But that's akin to asking why any variances of products exist that could possibly expand upon from an original style... Why should milk and white chocolate exist when plain dark chocolate is around? Was that an attempt to capture a naive audience or just introduce different appealing flavours? What about beer? Should any deviations have been made from the early medieval ales? Maybe there should only be one type of everything in case it comes across as someone trying to cynically capture a paying audience?

People have been infusing all sorts of products with different flavours to see how it comes out for millenia, sloe gin has existed for goodness knows how long and become a staple variation.

Surely if you just buy the gin you like and ignore the flavours you don't, I'm not sure what the problem is.

And I'm not defending 'hipsters', I dislike the stylised beards... But I'm not sure how product development in an open market has ruined gin...?!

So, does this gin taste horrible? I'll assume you've tried it before commenting?

I always thought (probably falsely!) that gin was just vodka with stuff in it? In which case why have gin at all, just buy vodka and stick juniper berries in it!
