    Impressive collection there Grant. Personally am not a whiskey lover prefer Tequila which i have nice collection of at the moment. Will try get some pics together once we finished this batch of lambing and have the time. Also like a nice real ale prefer Blondes among my favourites are Blueberry by Coachhouse Brewery, Boxer Blonde by local brewery Bowland and like the Tequila Blonde by Saltaire Brewery.
    Also like to mess with flavouring my tequilas at mo i have a bottle of Sloe Tequila and one Pear drops

    Yes - especially with the shortage of hand sanitiser!

    Indeed. We've got about 3 litres here, which we use for cocktails. Hand sanitiser is only something we'll be using when we go out, which won't be often [soap and water every other time], so we won't be going through much

    It needs to be over60% by vol to have an effect so standard drinking alcohol is of little use alas.
    Isopropyl mixed with an alow Vera gel will be better. As long as the final vol is over 60. Pref nearer 70

    I have 5 litres of 90%+ stuff in the garage to make record cleaner. It won’t be going in hand sanitizer, as it is less effective than soap and hot water.
