Gin in Rome? Brits' comments welcome ;)

Jump to last reply

A TR from a Fodorite mentioned a bar (Pimm's, which looks fun) and it prompted me to post. I'll be heading back for a 5th trip to Rome in February 2016 for 7 nights and want to seek out some of the gins that are impossible to find in my neck of the woods (Midwest US). I've had about 40 over the last few years, so, not shabby, especially because most are not American gins which I don't enjoy as much as London Dry/international gins.

This trip includes my birthday and all my friends there love gin - in fact, my deep affection for g&t was rekindled on American Thanksgiving 2013 in Rome. The Gin Corner is a natural choice with its extensive and mouth-watering list - we'll be heading there without question.

Have any of you visited any of the following bars and recommend them for cocktails/interesting ingredients, even if the gin list isn't that long?

Caffe' Propaganda (only 5 gins that I haven't tried but atmosphere looks appealing)
Hotel Locarno
Etabli
Barnum Cafe

It won't be feasible to try all - I've looked up reviews of the above and feel contented in trying any of them, but value the first-hand experience of folks here. Perhaps some of the many Brits here ;)? *Annhig* I always enjoy your contributions to a conversation!

This may be a very narrow question, so please let me know if you have any other cocktail bar recommendations; I'm all ears! Grazie tutti.
