As a young man (21-25 years old), I'd often take my fiancé out to dinner and order a Tom Collins. So at a young age, I had a taste for gin. Then in my 30s, my boss talked about gin & dew (Mountain Dew).  I tried it and enjoyed it but do not recommend it. 

 

Years later, I met a fellow with whom I became very good friends. He talked about his affinity towards gin & tonic.  When we got together, we would typically enjoy a gin & tonic garnished with a wedge of lime.  The effects led to letting our guards down enough to enjoy amazing conversations which probably wouldn't happened had we not been half crocked. 

 

What was my friend's favorite gin?  Sapphire.  It is still my favorite and maybe there are higher shelved, and higher recommended gins but Sapphire brings about the best memories.
