As a spin-off from "Why do so many people hate Gin?", I'd love to know what gins people love . . . and for what type of drink?
While I am not wedded to any single gin myself, when it comes to the "BIG brands," I prefer Tanqueray and Bombay over Bombay Sapphire for a G&T; Plymouth, Boodle's or Beefeater in a martini.
But if smaller, "artisinal" gin is available, I prefer No. 209 for a martini, and St. George Botanivore in a G&T.
