Broker's Gin

Hiatus over. I MUST share this wonderful gin with you all.

Three points of interest about Broker's gin:

- Delicious
- Spicy yet smooth
- $16.99

No, that's not a mistype. This gin, from a 200-year-old small batch distillery in London, is only 17 bucks (for 750 mL). And for what you get, it's an unbelievable price. Many gins in this price range tend to be either watery or so overly saturated with juniper that they burn all the way down. This one has a nice blend of botanicals that is predominantly junipery, but still delicate and smooth. And it's no slouch on the ABV either, checking in at 94 proof, the standard for high-quality gin.

I encourage you to pick up a bottle and sample it yourself, or visit their website at http://www.brokersgin.com. It's fantastic in dry martinis or other simple cocktails. You will not be disappointed.
