“As someone who’s been involved in operations, logistics, pricing, costing, and general frontline service, it’s always difficult for me to enjoy anything beverage-related when I know how much it cost. For example, bourbon and wine follow the same pricing and quality costs. “Even if something is limited in quantity and prohibitively expensive, sometimes it can be difficult for me to justify spending $80 on a bottle of gin when I know I can get a 1.75-liter that’s 80% as good but for a quarter of the price.
As such, most of these Tokyo escorts gins are reasonably priced and can be used in pretty much any drink you wish.
“Tanqueray is a fantastic all-around gin that fits into whatever drinking habits you might have. Seagram’s on the other hand is just as good and even cheaper, but isn’t something I’d make a martini with. And while Plymouth is an absolute must-have for any Escorts in Tokyo bar and is delicious in whatever drink you put it into, And as someone who has tasted and been involved in gin for so long, there’s a reason why I always gravitate to the old trusted brands that have been doing it for 200 years or more: Not only are they affordable enough to be your daily driver, they’re good enough to be infinitely consistent from bottle to bottle.”
