Bring on the booze! hic

Here's an awful blurry pic of Jude (he says he looks like 'a piggy version of Tom Waits') bottling up Blackcurrant wine which he started fermenting in June. He's also got Blackberry & Elderberry and Red & Whitecurrant on the go...  but sadly we'll have to wait a year for both of them to be drinkable (yeah right). We're talking 70-100 bottles of each kind so there's a helluva shedful out there already, and more to make. The freezer is still full of gooseberries, plums, blackcurrants & blackberries and more elderberries so he'll have plenty to be getting on with over Winter (whilst he's glugging back the Blackcurrant). Chin chin.


  1. That's a lot of wine! 'Chin chin' always makes me think of Withnail and I, makes me smile every time.

  2. It is, isn't it? And yet, no doubt we'll have run out by this time next year.... we give a lot away of course (hic) :-) I haven't seen W & I for years, good film to watch this time of year when it's just starting to get a bit chilly & atmospheric outside.


I love reading your comments, thank you for taking the time to write ♥
