UK Peroni is actually what here in Italy is sold as Nastro Azzuro, no double branding, which is a bit better overall than regular Peroni.

I like the black and gold Peroni; think it’s over 6%

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.

There anything different about it Carl? I remember the Turkish fantas that came in a bottle were much better when I used to live near the shops that had them

Way less gas/fizzy and not as addictive as the UK version.

They do Fanta in there as well.

Love that stuff Jacko, so easy to drink, no wonder the bottles are a litre.

Festejar was hands down the best low intervention wine I’ve ever had, loved it.

Just had a pallet of budget rosé delivered. The Les potes has absolutely nothing added

Yeah tis lovely! Thought I had a bottle of Festejar on my order, turns out I haven't, will have to give it a go next time.

I have a bottle of Susucaru which I haven't opened yet, from all accounts all of his wines are spot on!

Another new arrival from L’Ausseil, 100% Carignan but fresh


And this, absolutely not for me, there is some ripe fruit sweetness but overall tastes like an Elastoplast
