Re: What liquor and wine do you stock on Board
Well the Wombet and I are rather partial to a Vodka Tonic in the late afternoon so we always have a supply of Stolychniya on board. I'm sure there are better Vodkas but if you are bunging tonic into it then why bother.
I'm the beer drinker. Pilsener style is my preference, current fav is Trumer Pils from Austria but I can live with Becks or Peroni.
Wine with dinner, that is non negotiable. The Wombet pretty much only drinks white, mainly Pinot Grigio, Chardonnay or Chablis but usually whites from Italy or France. I like the odd red, primarily Pinot Noir but happy with most of the Spanish reds from Rioja of course but most Spanish wine regions do good reds. Some pretty good stuff coming out of Austria as well.
Hardest thing for me is that I absolutely adore Portuguese. Either red or white but it is almost impossible to find in Australia. In the middle of a summer's day, with a great big load of oysters, prawns, clams and the like nothing much beats a bottle of Portuguese Vinho Verde , green or young white wine. Just fabulous. Emphasis on young.
After dinner ..... pretty happy with a Jamieson or a Justinian & Brooks on the rocks. I am not a whisky conoisseur, happy to admit it, but I like what I know.
For breakfast Bloody Mary without the Worcester but plenty of Tabasco.
Anyone up for a cheese thread ?
