Help me pick a nice, high-end gin for me to get my brother-in-law for Christmas.

I'd like to get him something other than Tanqueray.

Dolomite,

Bombay Sapphire Gin is excellent.

Just got hooked on a small batch brand called Hendricks. Prefer it to Bombay.

I know you said no Tanqueray but the Tanqueray Ten is decent drinking gin.


Created under the watchful eye and uncompromising senses of our Master Distiller, No.TEN by Tanqueray is the only gin in the world distilled with handpicked, whole-fruit fresh botanicals. And Tanqueray No.TEN is produced exclusively in a special small batch still aptly dubbed "Tiny Ten," which is specifically designed to provide for the exquisite depth and character of the resulting spirit.
Upon opening the bold, strikingly handsome, rich green bottle of No.TEN by Tanqueray gin, your senses will be drawn to a fresh, bracing aroma. Pouring a cocktail unwraps the essence of such bright citrus flavors as grapefruit, orange and lime, mixed harmoniously with juniper and accented by the slightest tease of soothing chamomile. You'll be rewarded with its smooth, crisp finish.

another vote for Bombay Sapphire. My preffered gin.

Citadelle.

Tanqueray Malacca Gin is no longer made but can sometimes be found in the dusty corners of a country liquor store in ...say...Utah or Wyoming, maybe even Missouri. Can't find it on the net anymore or at any local places. Bought one for a friend in Hawaii ....$80...last Christmas.
