Chateau Mouton Rothschild 1945. The best wine I've ever tasted.

Not that I can afford it!

Beer: Has to be real and interesting, and also I like regional variety wherever I travel. Favourites up here in Yorkshire are the inevitable Theakstons and Black Sheep, but even better are some of the beers from Cropton Brewery (e.g. 2 pints) and Hambleton (especially the Nightmare). I used to be addicted to Gales when in Hampshire, but it's not the same since Fullers took it over. For a bottled beer it's hard to beat Hop Back Summer Lightning.

Lager: Only drink it in a country that doesn't have beer (But Chimay can be OK)

Wine: Depends on the food - mA good Sancerre with trout, Rioja with wild boar and a Burgundy with much game. Wine as an alternative to beer is great in countries where the wine is better. I've had many an enjoyable evening in the Pyranees drinking the local Cotes du Roussillon, and Blanquette de Limoux is better than all but the best champagnes (and half the price).

Spirits: Single Malt every time and again lots of variety. A rare treat is a bottle from a now defunct distillery (e.g. Bladnoch). For the readily available I tend to go for Islay (Laphroaig, Bowmore etc)

Soft drinks: Can't stand them - too much sugar and fizz. I'd rather have a pint of tea (good strong Assam)

Like Barry I had 21 years sightseeing around the world using the grey funnel lines (warships) to take my body (sorry could have put the correct part but would have been modded!!) from port to port drinking anything and everything.

I started drinking lager then found that Bitter was cheaper so switched to that, John Smiths Smooth was the nicest pint I touched. Havent had a drink now for nearly a year. Last time I was drunk my caravan must have been upwind from the bar as I tacked all the way home.

Diet coke for me now, but every once in a while I may be tempted to a pint of Smooth

In another life long ago on Tankers we used to have a beer called
Tuberg ,may be the wrong spelling,but a green and white can,
and a strange stuff called Tiger Beer.
Help needed here.

Hi Barry and Olive
Sorry but I wouldn't drink John Smiths if they were giving it away! (bit light on the hops and flavour) Tinhat Got to agree with Robin's choices and would add Roosters, York Terrier, Fernandes, plus of course anything from WOODFORDES Wherry, Nog, Great Eastern, Nelsons Revenge.........getting thirsty already.....

Cheers

Howard

And Tiger Beer is superb too.....from Singapore.

Found in a lot of Indian/Thai restaurants.

well we have done the theakstons brewery tour up in yorkshire, and tried the lot!
it was very intresting, the mash cans were reclaimed from the old mansfield brewery in nottingham, and are made of slate, they accidentally cracked one in removal, and it was unusable, which was a shame, as they were over 200yrs old, and unreplaceable.
their 'riggwelter' beer gets its name from the yorkshire term for a sheep that has fallen onto its back and cannot get up, said to be 'rigwelted'.
a couple of pints of that stuff and humans tend to do the same thing!   Evil Grin  Cheers

our favourite whiskey is 'solera reserve' from the glenffidich distillery, or if we are touring up that way, we sometimes collect a bottle of cask strength, which is hard to come by in local shops south of the boarder, and something to be sipped neat and savoured, along with some fresh caught speyside salmon, or game from the lovelly deli and butchers shop at Blair Athol, their smoked venison is superb . Cool Indifference
