A friend of ours is a gin fancier (as are we) who tries every available gin that comes on the market. Australia has a lot of home grown gins, some exceptional and she recently mentioned this one from Tasmania on her Instagram feed.

A friend of mine refers to white wine as 'lady petrol' . It doesn't seem to upset the females he's serving it to. He's a Navy bloke.

Edit: Supplementary question. If the suppliers have already decided risque names were not economically wise why would CAMRA need to ban them? Mind you, I always thought CAMRA were a bunch of tweed-encrusted snobs more interested in sniffing the ale instead of actually drinking it in any sensible quantity, but that might just have been the local branch where I grew up.

And bitter beer is not supposed to be citrusy. I've given up on the progressively more inoffensive flavours of beer and resorted to Guinness. Courage Directors used to be so dry and bitter you needed a drink afterwards. Never been the same since they stopped brewing in London.

Oops, sorry, got on one of my hobbyhorses there.
Apart from Abbot, and Bishops finger, Tourettesbloodyshittybitter is one to look out for.:boozing:
