For Sioux, who, at Sunday dinner out, assigned each attendee the writing of a poem about the event, and to whom I then said yeah, right, maybe a haiku: August 13, 2009

know her gins but Tim sniffed out
the Hendricks quickly

My sister can detect hendricks at 20 paces.

B: I think I like her.

Mmmmmm Hendricks. Killed a bottle during our vacation in Wisconsin.

Cedar: I’ve noticed via Facebook that you have a friend—perhaps an aunt?—named Ginny Hendricks. This has long intrigued me.

5. Eulalia (Lali) Benejam Cobb - August 14, 2009

Cedar, bats and frogs and Hendricks–sounds like quite a vacation!

Indigo, and what did you have to eat?

6. indigo bunting - August 14, 2009

A shiitake and goat cheese tart and bouillabaisse.

I mean chanterelle.

8. helen - August 15, 2009

Did someone pick the chanterelles? Someone you trust completely?

Helen: Turns out they weren’t angels of death.

Junipero, Portsmouth or Hendricks. Or some other. Advice please?

11. indigo bunting - August 20, 2009

Sadly, can’t give advice, as I don’t believe I’ve ever had Junipero or Portsmouth. Depends on what you’re going to do with it. Hendricks is a bit cucumbery, and I would never mix it with tonic because I think it’s too good for that. But that’s me.

If you find one you like, let me know.

Late replying — yes, Ginny Hendricks is my mother’s younger sister. I first bought the gin-of-the-same-name because of the name, but now buy it because of the taste. Only sometimes though — it is pricey.

Plymouth (why on Earth did I say Portsmouth) is wonderful. Far too good to drink with anything at all but perhaps a bit of peel inside the glass. I learned about it from NPR when they profiled the company as one of the oldest extant distilleries in the world.

Junipero is by the folks that bring us Anchor Steam. I am told it is better but have not found it. When I do, I will buy a bottle.

I suggest Plymouth. If you try it and have an opinion, I would happily listen.

I have had Plymouth, maybe once, maybe twice, when a friend made a martini for me with it. My faded memory is that I liked it. I know that it’s highly traditional. I shall have to try it again before too long.
