Quite like this tonic, has a flavour of grapefruit
Interesting. Unfortunately, it's virtually impossible to find decent Tonic Water (including Fever Tree and Fentimans) since all of the manufacturers decided to cut right down on the quinine (cinchona bark) and use artificial bittering agents instead. I might try this but I'm pretty much resigned to only getting a decent G&T in India these days.
Agreed. Thought it was me, but opened a bottle and was very disappointed, an acrid taste compared to what I'd tried before (older opened bottle). Ignored it at the back of the cupboard, then decided to try it again and so much better!
You lucky so and so! Thanks for the tip. So often I see whisky reviewers crack open the bottle, pour out a dram, and base their opinion on that first taste. Will make sure to hang on to this one for a while, now.
You see that CCC drop back in 2014 to £26.88...I managed to get 4 bottles then thanks to this site :D Great scotch this benefits from being open for 3 or so months in my opinion. good price.
As someone who is new to whisky I hope you will realise that the reference to panda cola is highly original and absolute comedic genius, it never fails to make people roll on the floor laughing in hysterics.
Something I spotted on a few £100+ bottles recently. It makes it very tempting indeed
Ginger wine, ice and a slice is the way to go for the good stuff. ;)
One of those facts where I say "I actually knew that already but forgot" (lol)
You should read the book “Belching Out the Devil” by Mark Thomas, it’s an interesting read. Also fun fact (that Coca Cola won’t tell you) - Fanta was invented during WW2 by Coca Cola in Germany as they couldn’t get the syrup for Coke
If you looked into all big food and drink companies, you'd never eat and drink again
I've had a scan through and though it doesn't make for pleasant reading, I didn't see much I wasn't already vaguely aware of. However, most of the issues mentioned in reference to coca-cola are typical of all very large global organisations which have a long history. The only difference between Coca-cola and the alternatives you talk about is that they haven't existed long enough to commit the atrocities that Coca-cola did in the past and they probably do commit the atrocities which Coca-cola does currently, albeit on a smaller scale.
Even though we are only supposed to make mundane comments I'm going to risk posting this https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Criticism_of_Coca-Cola I absolutely love Fanta...it was my go to treat drink but I can't overlook a lot of this criticism when there are so many alternatives.
After hearing about cockroaches in ground coffee. No thanks! (lol)
If you think this is going to be anything like a decent cappuccino, you’re wrong
£2 with free delivery, can't be making any money on that. But I'm guessing people usually buy more than one. Prefer the unsweetened version myself (even though they have 3.9g sugar per mug/ sachet so I don't know how they get away with calling them that).
I really like this. Coming to the end of my 1kg tub bought from these guys so just ordered 3 of these ones (y)
It's better than that Maxwell house crap. Kenco cappuccino is my favourite.
Technically, White Lightning was under Bulmers ownership. Bulmers was bought out by S&N, and subsequently Heineken since White Lightning. So yes, there are distant links, but not quite the same company. For reference, I work at the old Bulmers plant in Hereford, owned by Heineken.
I'll admit I don't normally drink cider, I quite liked flat tyre and savanna. I just found this too sharp.
Which cider do you normally drink?
I bought some of this, it is rank, I regret my purchase.
This Cider has been developed by Heineken over the last 3ish years. They brought the Inch's brand and launched Inch's Rolling Apple in pubs in the West Country. They have tweaked the flavour, rebranded it and launched it nationally. They are trying to take on the Thatcher's stronghold. I am not a Cider drinker but my customers seem to like the Inch's flavour. Apparently it tastes slightly more appley than Thatcher's Gold. It won't win over everybody but if Heineken support it I think it will take a chunk out of Thatcher's Gold. Heineken also own Strongbow. The Strongbow brand is pretty bad around the West Country. However, Strongbow Cloudy goes head to head against Thatcher's Haze and comes out on top. I replaced Strongbow Cloudy with Haze on both my bars and had a lot of complaints. The customers said Haze was too sweet and could only drink 1 or 2 before they felt "full", they say Cloudy is not sickly and they can drink more. Obviously I moved back to Cloudy. Strongbow Dark Fruit does OK too and Thatcher's are stubborn about making a fruit cider. I have a meeting with my Thatcher's rep tomorrow and she is bringing "a company director" because I am brutally honest (lol)
