Perhaps, you can order direct from the Producer.

There is an Organic Boutique Gin called: Maverick and it is produced in Southern Alicante.

I am sure the owner, would ship you a few bottles or 1 case.

It is truly amazing. The blue is absolutely delightingly exquisite. He also manufactures a Red Gin produced with Organic Monsatrell Grapes. Very sublime too ..

Have a wonderful day ..

In summer - definitely Negroni - gin, campari, sweet red vermouth, a slice of lemon and plenty of ice - can't go wrong with that!

Hi, A-Walker! Welcome to DC.

I love Campari. Not a fan of gin, though. Since I do love Bourbon, I tried a Boulevardier. Meh. Give me my Bourbon, neat. And my Campari with one ice cube and a wedge of lime. Why ruin a good thing, I say? And Campari and a nice sipping Bourbon are both very good things.

Saul,

A dear Sommelier friend had recommended some Riesling Mono Varietals to me, and so I shall share his list .. ( I am not a grand fan of still White wines, however, my Mom and Mom in law were quite impressed .. I am a red wine or sparkling wine enthusiast and particulary wines from Ribera del Duero, Toro, Zamora, Rioja Alavesa, Rioja Alta and Priorat, which are my favorite .. I also am veered toward French Côte du Rhone & some Bordeaux .. I prefer oak aged reds ..

Priorat: Check Alvaro Palacios (Cataluna) .. Amazing reds and just received 100 Points in Wine Spectator Magazine & the Robert Parker Magazine ..

Here they are:

Riseling - Germany ..

Qualitätswein Mosel Zeitinger Himmelreich ..

Mosel Hofberg ..

Selbach Oster ..

Crown Royal on the rocks. Tanqueray and tonic with a lime. A good Bloody Mary.

Its been 20 years since I have had a mixed drink.. The last I recall was a White Russian.. Used to love those..

I was always a beer guy.. Haven't enjoyed one in a couple of years.. Supposed to go to a beer and burger place with friends tomorrow.. Maybe I'll have a beer then..
