alright mate i was only asking


#10

I know you’ve made your choice but this stuff is good.


#11

nono this is all good knowledge and looks v cool. the person i’m getting it for is the richest person i think i will ever meet on earth, and therefore i need to get him something not that he can’t buy, but that is niche enough for him not to know about it


#12

Very good! They’re a new distillery but are making good stuff. Irish gin is very much still a novelty too!


#13


#14

yesssss. it’s so ace that there’s so much of this kind of stuff hidden all over the british isles. no way he’ll know any of these (maybe the first one)


#15

Vouchers


#16

can’t bring myself to ever give vouchers


#17

That’s a lovely gin and a cool bottle, nice over ice with just a wee squeeze of fresh lime


#18

This is quite niche (cheaper off amazon though)-


#19

Also, Americans go nuts for Irish stuff. Was in the offie before practice last night and a group of Americans were in. One lad bought two bottles of that gin and then went back to buy a €120 bottle of whiskey after that. Spent at least €200 in three minutes.

I have no idea if, as well as looking like meths it also tastes like meths (so to speak) but doesn’t this look just super-

Basically you can’t go wrong with master of malt for some different ideas for stuff that rich yankies will lap up.
