    Beefeater is my go-to but I like New Amsterdam too for when you want less assertive juniper taste. Gin isn't expensive generally, you can get a good bottle for under $25 for a fifth. 750 mL or whatever it is now.
    I like to rock n' roll all night and *part* of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1-3.

    I don't know a lot but of the ones I've tried Hendricks is the best. I think it's a safe bet

    If you like cucumber more than juniper. Personally, I do. I think it's a good safe bet. You could go with Nolet's for a different but good non-traditional gin. It's smooth with more rose notes.


    Monkey 47 is good for particular tastes.

    Hendricks is pricey but it's very high quality and tasty. I've never had them, but I've heard good things about Plymouth and Aviation gins as well.

    Of the small amount I've tried I like Tanqueray and Bombay Sapphire.
