Lots of tobacco offerings with alcohol infusions - runm, whisky, brandy. Has anyone experienced a gin infused tobacco? I wonder how the botanicals would come through.

I'm sure someone has tried it, so apparently it didn't work out. The juniper berry that is used to flavor gin may not translate well when burnt. It has a highly distinctive tang and may not work without the liquid and the ice.

If that’s the case I would love to hear about it. Juniper by itself could be kind of citrusy and maybe brighten up the right blend, especially with the other botanicals. How about a whole dry martini? Lots of interesting possibilities with botanicals there. Maybe I’ll write to GLP or C&D, though they probably monitor the forums.

I tried gin with some home grown leaf once, it certainly took on the flavours and was apparent in the smoke but to be honest it was just a little too much. I would not repeat it.
