Ironic there's a thread about this spirit considering it's one of the very few I can't stomach.|
Mind, gin's not nearly as popular over here in Belgium as it presumably is in Old Blighty so I reckon we mostly get the shitty sort in stores.
Used to be true of whiskey; I couldn't stand the stuff until about 10-15 years ago. I then discovered the types they used to sell were aimed at customers to whom price/alcohol ratio is the sole consideration.
The rise in popularity of proper single malts quite changed my view on whiskey.
So, any recommendations for a gin debutant? I suppose I should be able to purchase some decent sort online if all else fails.
