got that one in a subscription box the other day, haven't had it yet but it has to be said that it's a cringe fucking label.

Tillingham PN is great, need more of that

Laughing out loud

I assume there’s some type of irony going on with the label?

It’s actually called ‘I Wish I was A Ninja’ and the style is pet nat ie fermented in the bottle. Just to get it straight; I’m not excusing the naming or graphics (it’s from South Africa)

Whilst some have unearthed their passions for gardening and horticulture, peeling back secrets of their back yards, living out their French Chateau dreams in Riba-Prize winning bunkers, or nailing alcohol celebacy, I've rediscovered some old favorites..

First up is this Coca Cola. Not the original infused Cocaine version obviously, but Caffeine content is high, effervescence moderate. So good I've nearly finished the bottle. Diary reminder to purchase another.


Somewhat slightly disappointing version of Old Jamaica, but effervescence is high and goes well with grilled fish. Not bad for a Morrisons own brand.

What was the year on the Coca Cola? Looks fantastic

Eagle Rare ten year old bourbon.
Down to thirty quid on Amazon atm and it's a very good bourbon for the price.

Does anyone do decent mixed cases of low-intervention / natural wines? Want to get one delivered as a gift

Every retailer is pushing these now. I’d recommend starting with Noble Fine Liquor who have a few price tiers, but just check all the retailers I posted a couple of pages back as a steer

Good intro offer on Swedish Whiskey and gin here. Really rate this distillery and what they’re doing…

No pics but drinking my favourite cocktail tonight - ‘A Touch of Greyhound’

2 parts vodka (I prefer Titos)
1 part St Germain
1 part Aperol
4 parts fresh lime juice (Though I normally juice one lime and top up with M&S Lime and Lemongrass Presse)
Serve over ice

Perfect for (and lethal in) this weather.
