Winston doesn't like the Victory Gin. Upon drinking it, he feels like a hammer has hit his head. The gin can't be pleasurable or people will develop individual opinions about things: everything in Oceania must be about the party. Still, Winston drinks the acrid gin because it eventually numbs his pathetic meaningless existence.
