    ‘Twas the eve of St Wigan’s Day and I had decided to bestow a visit to the most evil bitch I knew. Minutes after arriving and convinced I had just seen a ghost, I ran out of Penelope’s house screaming for my life. Boy was my face red when it turned out it was just our Poison Pen trying out her new face cream!

    This topic is making me want to BUILD UP a drinks cabinet of my own :D Despite almost entirely being a wine drinker, or beer if I'm in the mood to feel FLABBY the next day.

    I don't drink a lot of spirits, but a Campari Soda is probably my favourite ever drink :disco: I'm not into SWEET COCKTAILS at all, but I'm all over a well made negroni or martini if AVAILABLE.

    I wish Vermouth was easier to buy around where I live (CENTRAL HACKNEY!), both dry white and red varieties. You can't just plop it in the basket as none of the supermarkets round here SELL IT! :argh: Maybe this topic will inspire me to hang around more ARTISAN BOTTLE SHOPS!*


    *or more likely: WEBSITES, who can be FUCKED talking to people in real life!

    That's cos it's on Friday and they needed to post all the samples out! They arrived today and they're TINY. 25 or 30ml I guess but they're in pouches so it's hard to tell. I haven't done an event with this company before.

    I have nothing to add to spirit discussion, but @monsta's drinks cabinet is a thing of absolute beauty.

    I’m not gonna lie. I probably need to pimp mine up like @monsta ‘s.

    I don’t have space for all my whiskies either. :(

    Guys, following the events of this thread earlier in the week I can confirm I LOOKED A BIT HARDER when plopping around Morrisons, and am now the proud owner of a litre of both ROSSO VERMOUTH and extra dry BLANCO :disco:

    Let's hope I don't gobble it all tonight eh :eyes:

    Apart from a bit of mansplaining from the host early on, it was good. They had whiskies from Scotland, Wales, Sweden and NZ, so quite international :disco: The Swedish one tasted like being in a PINE FOREST. The Welsh was my favourite, a Penderyn Madeira cask, but I already have their Portwood so I knew I was going to like it.

    So these are female producers? What was the point in having a male host? :manson:
