Went on a gin distillery tour on Saturday. Surprising how easy it is to make.

It seems 'Scruff' is a more reasonable price than the stuff we saw...

Needless to say, at 60 quid didn't buy a bottle

I was looking for the "shocked face" smiley, but it seems we haven't got one!

Anyone know where I can buy some ethanol?
Buy cheap vodka and search for bathtub gin recipes.

as well as those official smilies, you can use any emoji your device can generate.

eg 😲 🤯 (they will appear different on different devices)

What device are you typing on? If it's Windows, what version (eg 7, 8 etc)

I am on a PC at the moment, sometimes I am using an Android tablet. I can't remember what Windows I use, 8 maybe.

On Android, it should be easy. Look at your keyboard and there should be a little smiley face. Click that,and you will have a world of emojis at your fingertips. Just tap on them.

PC - as long as it's 8 or above, try this. If it's 7 or older, then don't bother.

Sorry to drag the thread back on track, but...

(Imagine a photo of a pint of Old Speckled Hen and some dry roasted peanuts which is too large for uploading)

Train delay beer while I decide whether to try and get home tonight in the face of another points failure or just stay in London.

In this situation the correct thing to do is to down the beer and abandon the dry-roast peanuts. In fact, dry-roast peanuts should be abandoned whatever the situation.

It answers lots of questions under "Find Out More" except how much it costs (unless I have missed something).
