In a previous post, I spoke about our Aviation Disaster, we ran out of Aviation Gin. My friend, Heather, had brought us some from the big city but it wasn’t available in our local liquor store. The search was on! Fortunately, the local BC Liquor Store manager ordered a case of Aviation gin so we could get some and now the store has it in stock. We were rescued. We had to come up with a cocktail to celebrate. Welcome to the Aviation Search and Rescue. Continue reading Aviation Search and Rescue

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.

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