I'm a The Whisky Exchange : Online Whisky Shop - Buy Single Malt Scotch Whisky, Whiskies of the World, Rare Whisky man myself. Nice collection of bourbons, and do lots of the JD special editions.
I like a drink at home now and again (who doesn't?) but have noticed the prices steadily rising around my neck of the woods here in darkest Warwickshire, and a local off-licence that was pretty cheap has just been closed.
Apparently setting up your own still is still illegal in the UK - Mrs.Tech_Guy has hit that idea on the head (so it looks like I'm going to have to return all the stuff I've 'borrowed' from the science lab - d'oh....!).
I'm a Jack Daniels man so where is the cheapest place to buy it from?
Living in Kent - less than an hour from the Channel Tunnel; we cross the channel twice a year... we have a lovely day out!
It's timed to perfection: Arrive Auchan Calais 8.30am just as it opens, Do the shop, Have a coffee and a gateau in the coffee shop as the rest of the UK arrives, head into Calais old town to the market, lunch in a restaurant, afternoon on the beach if the weather's good (good for kites!) and then potter home
Mainly from Aldi. They do the little bottles of French beer that are just enough for me. Their wine is pretty good.
I need to get "on that". Only got some grouse (hmm), a drop (literally) of glenlivet and my 20yr old glenkinchie. Can't be hitting the top shelf stuff too often.
I have a bottle of whiskey that my dad when I was born, I have had it since I was 18. When he bought it, it was matured 18 years, so the stuff is like 42 years old now....I have had some of that and my god whiskey tastes fantastic the older it gets!
However I usually go to tesco as I get extra clubcard points with the vouchers....

Just go to the local super market. Don't have the time to shop arround for the sake of a few quid.
When we went to sainsburys in calais at the end of dec they had 6 x bottles of red wine not sure the make but really nice for £9 but they sell it in sainsburys here for £6.99 a bottle!!
shows how much goes to gordon!
Restaurant La Mer, brasserie, spécialité de poissons for fish especially the Bateau de Fruits de Mer
and Restaurant L'Histoire Ancienne for fab French Food
@nephilim: It doesn't work like that it's only as old as the time its been in the cask.
I had a visit to the english whisky co distilery the other week, must get my name down for a bottle.
I'm mainly a real ale man myself.
Kent must be an expensive place to live if you pay prices like that!
Talisker i can get for £28 - £30 at Asda also Glenmorangie original for much the same price as for 18 year old stuff around the same price give or take a couple of quid.
I don't drink, but if I want to treat myself it's usually a premium cordial from M&S
