It has come to my attention through a very recent acquaintance that there exists a product called "Bombardier British Military Dry Gin." I have found very little evidence of this product's existence beyond this website, which refuses to ship the product to Indiana.


I don't know if this gin is any good, nor do I know if "British military gin" is any different than ordinary dry gin. What I do know is that I must find out. If anyone in the Sphere of Influence has seen this product for retail sale and/or knows anything about it, please let us know in the comments. You have the full faith and credit of Ginandtacos, Inc. behind you if you are willing to purchase and ship this product to us – monetary repayment will be swift, but your real reward will be in heaven.


  • i just e-mailed the guy who orders the booze at the bar i work at. he'll tell me if i can get it. if i can get it, i will mail it to you, and you will owe me.

  • i just emailed the guy who orders at the bar i work at. if he can get it ill mail it to you. then you will owe me.

  • I hope it gets shipped to Illinois and then transported across state lines to Bloomington. I'm sure we'd violate some arcane law in doing so, and it would make a hell of a court case.

  • I don't think there's a state law in Illinois regarding alcohol shipments from other states. In fact, I'd just ship it to Illinois and then brought to Indiana. I can't find anything regarding Internet shipments to Illinois.

    In better news, there seems to be a court case in Indiana challenging the law which states that alcohol can't be shipped here:

    In Bridenbaugh v. O'Bannon, plaintiffs challenged the constitutionality of Indiana Statute which made it unlawful for persons in another state to ship an alcoholic beverage directly to an Indiana residence. The U.S. District Court held that the Indiana direct shipment regulation was unconstitutional under the Commerce Clause, and granted the plaintiffs' summary judgment motion (at 78 F. Supp.2d 828 (N.D. Ind. 1999)). This case is currently on appeal to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 7th Circuit.

  • If you talk to the folks at one of the many Big Red Liquors in Bloomington, they might be able to order some for you.

    They once told me if their distributor carries it, they can special order you pretty much whatever you want.
