I was hoping after a couple of bottles even if the spirit was willing, the flesh would be incapable.

I thought that might get your attention. You get a small bottle of cocoa nibs to add to the glass.

Unfortunatrly I can't open it until my medication is done >:(

Answered my two questions:
  1. What's in the vial (cross reference to another thread, wondered if it was pepper corns
  2. Are you allowed to drink it
Enjoy your well earned reward. I won't express any envy, as I am trying not to sexually harass any member. But, purely hypothetically: yum! 😋

@Dunckel - just out of interest, which distillery is your gin from?

I'm thinking of a pay day present for me Mr R.

Joan isn't wrong.

It's Belgian. Just google "x gin" it is available quite easily. The quality wine merchant in the centre of Leicester usually stocks it, but they had none, which is why I decided to knock another nail into the coffin of small indrpendent businesses instead. Sorry.
