    Depends whether I feel like cucumber or citrus.

    Have you tried their Orbium? Trying to decide whether to pick up a bottle or not.

    I rarely drink gin on its own. I like it in Martinis and obviously in Gin and Tonics. So, I tend toward London Dry's. My favorites are:
    1. Boodles (so sad they changed the bottle design, though)
    2. Beefeater
    3. Hayman's
    4. Lord Astor (the house brand at Astor Liquor store in NYC)
    And yes
    5. Seagram's. Look: it is dirt cheap, but it is clean and makes a nice, crisp, no-nonsense American Martini. Try it!
    I also like Plymouth, occassionally, but I find it makes for a thicker, warmer Martini somehow.

    I once drank a good part of a bottle of gin mixed with orange soda pop. It was really very good. :)

    New Amsterdam is the go-to. Boodles is second most used around here. Other than those I tend to get something local or experimental when I can. Barrel aged gins are great. My most recent favorite is CAORUNN.

    London Dry Gin for me: Tanqueray, Bombay, Gordons, and if I want to spend a bit extra.....Plymouth. Finding out good tonic makes a better drink. About 1/4 wedge of lime. On a hot day very good.

    Finally a topic I can weigh in on. Hendricks on the rocks with a lime is my “I’m wearing a tie in a fancy restaurant drink”. Beefeater for gin and tonics. Bombay Original or New Amerstdam for when I want a drink on the rocks at home.
    And of course a shot of well gin at the bar when you want to make your friends gag and think you’re psychotic.

    Also for cocktails my two favorites are a Southside and Corpse Reviver #2 (if I really want to get complicated with my drink order.)

    I'm not all that picky as long as it is Dry and not too flowery.
