  1. Gonzalez Byass Solera 1847, Oloroso Dulce

    Gonzalez Byass Solera 1847 Oloroso Dulce Sherry

    £13.75

    £13.75

    'I'm rich. Rich rich rich,' sung Karen O in The Yeah Yeah Yeah's track 'Rich', from their brilliant 2003 debut album, Fever to Tell. But was Karen sanguinely singing about her financial status, or had she penned lyrics from the perspective of the Solera 1847 Oloroso Dulce?

    We'll leave that question to you, but what we will say is she must have had a very enjoyable time writing the song, because the Solera 1847 is awash with flavours of raisins, vanilla and salty caramel. Let's just hope she had some good cheese, for Pete's sake.

  2. Noilly Prat Dry Vermouth

    Noilly Prat Dry Vermouth

    £14.50

    £14.50

    Right! Grow up! Stop sniggering like a schoolchild because you've seen the word prat. It isn't prat, because it's French. So it's praaaaah. See? Besides, titter as you might, this vermouth is very far from prattish in any sense of the word. A 'prat', the Oxford English Dictionary would have it, is 'an incompetent or stupid person; an idiot.'*

    So how could the word 'prat' be associated with an aromatised wine this good, based on Picpoul and Clairette grapes, and infused among other things with Roman Chamomile, Nutmeg from Indonesia and Bitter Orange from Tunisia? Yeah. And Gentian from France. Who's the prat now?

    *'Prat' also means 'a person's buttocks.' I bet you didn't know that.
