I think you're good using reputable brand London Dry gins for tiki drinks. Using New World gins would have a "softer" effect, and would not match the flavor profile and impact of the London Dry gins. Big assumption on my part is that only London Drys were used by Don, Vic, etc. so someone else could definitely provide better-researched information.

"Traditional" London Drys would be Tanqueray and Beefeater among others.

"New Worlds" would be Uncle Val's and St. Augustine among others.

Thank you AceExplorer!

Can anyone recommend a type of gin for tiki drinks? I have enjoyed gin in drinks (mixed-no martinis), and that is the extent of my experience with gin:( But I figure I should start learning. I want to try Ray's mistake some day. Any suggestions/guidance would be much appreciated:)

I have a huge bottle of Kirkland Brand Gin. Works perfect.

BTW, I do the Bali Hai (New Orleans) Version Fogg Cutter
2 oz orange juice
1 oz fresh lime juice
1 oz sugar syrup
1 oz light
1 oz dark
1 oz brandy
1 oz gin
4ml almond extract (I think this is more than 1/2tsp)

Here in ATL at TV, it's pretty good though the sherry they use definitely makes itself known.

This is a real long shot, but does anyone have a guess at how Tiki Ti makes their Fog Cutter? It might just be my favorite drink out of everything I've tried there, and definitely the reason I haven't managed to make it through my checklist yet.
