They are missing
Amaretto
Vermouth
Campari
(Gin plus the above 2 makes a very easy Negroni)
Brandy - as noted
Spiced Rum


I think the 3 gins is either 1/sponsorship from Aviation or 2/Migration out of Tanq/Gordons for Aviation overtime

I’m also partial to Kümmel, Green Chartreuse and Grand Marnier, but suspect they won’t be seen anytime soon 😁

This was changed for environmental reasons. It’s the same products and the measures used are the same size, so no one should be missing out.

Ciroc is a pretty polarizing vodka -- a lot of people don't like it. They'd be better off with something unobtrusively mixable like Three Olives.

Very strange to stack up three gins but zero bourbon, Irish, or rum.

It's very popular with the Millennials and Gen Z crowd.

Anyway, I asked for a Bullleit, only to have the CSD come back and apologetically inform me that the Bulleit hadn't been loaded and only the JW Black was available.
AA crew seem hesitant to serve after drink #3.
And on my latest GRU-MIA they ran out of champagne (only 1 loaded for 20 ppl)
