    What Did You Drink Last Night?

    Both Nolet's Gins are made for the US market, the Silver is about $50 a bottle, Nolet's Reserve is around $700. The Botanist is OK but not worth a hefty price tag.

    You Big Softy! - Your Favourite Soft Drinks

    It's the same stuff, just a reference to the fact it used to be associated with the Indian colonials. But why are almost all tonic water labels yellow?

    What is your favorite Scotch Whisky?

    After my wife reviewed it on top of a hill in Edinburgh (as shown here) I've become quite a fan of the Grant's Ale Cask - not an expensive whisky by any means but quite good.

    I like the sound of that, must try it sometime. This weekend I have been experimenting with Bathtub Gin by master of malt. For a compound Gin it was superb, for any gin was still pretty good.
