    I can recommend the elderflower press as a subsitute, although it's fizzy rather than a cordial/juice.

    I get through a few bottles of wine a week and a Majestic Wine is on the way to work if I ever fall short.
    Majestic Wine - Homepage
    [ Can get only get two bottles in my box on my 650 ] - I tend to buy by the case load normally when I am in the car so it's not unusual for me to get 24 at a time.......
    On first name terms with them and they are always prepared to cork a bottle if something takes my fancy......
    Other than that it's Carlsberg from Sainsburys [ large cases ]

    Do I have an alcohol problem? Is a litre bottle of JD a week excessive? Do I really care? No.

    I tend not to think of it............I have heard that the liver can re-generate right ?
    And hell if Steve Jobs can get a new one, I should be able to get one myself or at least an App for it.

    I like the new Grouse Black, as a cheap every day Peaty whisky.
    Tesco et al sell it for 16, but I was in the Whisky shop in Gretna Green on Sunday and they were selling it (obviously to tourists) for 23!

    The Aldi High Juice is quite nice.

    Asda and Sainsburys do Bourbon Whiskey. Tastes just the same after the 2nd glass. Around 11 for 70cl

    Mostly from the pub, but some times the local supermarket. My nearest off licence only stocks white lightening and fizzy lager.

    Yeah, have 3/4 of a bottle of that on the shelf. It's ok... bit rough around the edges but drinkable with a dash of water.
