Long the booze of choice for Glaswegian and scouse young teenagers, but is it any good in trifle?

Apparently you get a free ASBO with every bottle.

Isnt it great, In Scotland, the home of Wisky, the people prefer a Devon based brew. No doubt they take it for its medicinal benefits.

Apparently it tastes odd but is 14 proof so the effect is everything.These monks know a thing or two about money making.

Back in the news today.

Do any people other than chav vandals with little alternative drink the stuff? Does it have any merit as a tonic?There are other ways of absorbing shots of caffein.Would the Abbey have to close without the income?

Quoted from this message



Positively weak compared to whisky. I suspect that it is much cheaper than whisky and that the problem in Scotland is that the whisky producers are trying to eliminate competion for their overpriced products.
