ditto, its always around £5.99 a bottle!

There's a lot of this going around at the moment. Shows up well with wine offers. Oh look, Banrock Station is down from £8 to £4 or Jacob's Creek for £3-4 instead of £8-9. Yeah, right!! :x

can white people drink this?

"Negro "...i thought that word was extinct ?

It's the same price in tesco - however if you buy 6 bottles you get 25% off so better to get from tesco if you want 6 bottles or more!!

Apart from Spain where it is the Spanish word for black. I suppose political correctness has yet to reach Spain, when it does I've no doubt it will be changed to negra.

And Portugal and every other Spanish and Portugese speaking country in the world (including almost all of Central and South America, parts of Africa and Australasia etc) which makes up a sizable proportion of the world's population. That's about 600 million people who probably couldn't care less that a word from their language (and originally from Latin) is being used in a derogatory way in other languages. It's not up to them to change it and pretend racism doesn't exist - it's up to people who speak English to discourage racism.

So people, get your priorities right and get over the fact there is a drink called Cordon Negro (or Black Cord).

There's a difference though between that, and a fairly recent (2 or 3 years ago I think) product name change in Finland where there was a chocolate called 'Ni**er's Kiss' or 'Negro Kisses' (depending on how you translate it from Suomi). The company that makes it was forced to rename it simply 'Kisses'.
