    We're on holiday for 3 weeks shortly, so I'll leave it until we're back for the official opening and sipping.

    Further to this, I decanted the gin into bottles today and sampled my wares.
    Drunk neat, it's too sweet for me, but with some tonic added it's extremely palatable, plus it's about half the price of the shop bought version. The recipe states that 80cl of gin plus the rhubarb and sugar will make approx 2litres of rhubarb gin. That's tosh, my original 1litre made approx 1.5 litres, but it was so easy to do, it's worthwhile.
    My wife is going to have a go at making a rhubarb pie or crumble with the residual rhubarb - that could prove interesting .

    Larkins traditional, from an excellent local brewery.
    Gun Parabellum. Milk stout
    Greenjack Baltic Trader. 10.5% Export stout.

    I tend to go for darker beers, the Gun Parabellum is fantastic on cask. For a pale beer Oakham Citra is a good thirst quencher.

    T'other evening I was quite happy just having a couple of local ales... At the end of the evening I spotted a barrel of Greene King Old 5x ... landlord poured me a third of a pint.... as that's all he sells at one time.

    Wow... stunning sipping beer.. well it's a complex barley wine really... at 12.5% .. molasses, twigglets and a porter wine taste and texture...warming... absolutely stunning .

    Just discovered Suilven ale from the An Teallach brewery in the Highlands. Superb stuff, exceedingly drinkable, especially just after driving past the mountain...

    I am very flexible on my favourite tipple, and when I am out and about the choice will always be whatever ale is on from the local brewery. The hip flask has a nice port in it.

    Certainly no 'big brand' cooking lagers like Carling and Heineken etc
