It’s so very easy to see.
It shows a 3 times distill,
Satisfaction to the fill;
Irish before Scotch for me!
More to the heart and quite a bit more truthful was the second one….
God; should I believe in Stelvin or Corks?
Tradition or the study of Quorks?
(think i’ll just drink the wine
if it smells and tastes fine)
Read the experts; I’m OK; they say it’s fine.
Hey, Black Bush. You're still my favourite.
See, this is what I'm talking about. I can still remember getting dumped by my college sweetheart and getting through a bottle of this stuff. I still felt good enough about it all that when I dropped into the distillery a short time later I remembered the whiskey and not the girl. OK I'm lying. But it's a good story.
I can visit, touch and feel Bushmills. I can't get near a vineyard. We don't have any in Ireland. (well, almost none: sorry to David Llewellyn and everyone in Lusk!)
The nasty face of nationalism is fascism. The wine trade does not like CRAV threatening to kill people and overturning vats and bombing railways in the South of France. It does like South of France wine makers defending their patch.
