Aviation Disaster!

Aviation Gin at oldfatguy.ca

We tried a recipe from the Aviation Gin site in a prior post. Unfortunately, we could not find Aviation Gin in the local liquor store. A friend was coming up from the big city and surprised me with a bottle of Aviation Gin.

I really liked it. It has a crisper, fresher taste than the other gins I have tried. Over the next few days we tried several great cocktails which you will see in subsequent posts. It was good times, good drinks and good gin.

The disaster? I am almost out of Aviation Gin and I still can’t get it here!
