    I'm thinking about getting some for the next couple of weekends. I have heard there is a big difference between good gin and bad gin, which is making me nervous about the purchase. So, I was wondering if anyone could suggest a certain brand that they have had a good experience with. Also, being a college student, if it's over $30 for a handle probably won't be getting it...

    Thanks in advance.

    Gin is too strong for you... Might consider getting some wine coolers.

    I roll with Gordon's cause it's cheap. Get Saphire (Bombay) or Tanqueray.

    It's similar in color. That's about it.

    Might try some gin ger ale. Cheep and buy it in a 24 pack. :smile:


    Seriously, I have been considering getting some good gin, as the OP said, what are some good brands.
