Gilbey's Gin is a classic London Dry Gin and has a great subtle flavour. It mixes quite well, and in cocktails, its harsher side is quelled and restrained. As far as mixed drinks go, it suits the gin and tonic, gin and juice, gin and lemonade or gin and grapefruit soda. It is an affordable gin and you are very right in it being excellent for making loads at a party (saving a pretty penny without marginalizing quality). Recommend it for your next house party.
