Three thousand Italian bottles
Witnessed some first-class rural tooth sucking on Friday when two pallets of bottles were delivered but the lorry they came on couldn't get through the gate into the yard - 'sorry mate but if you'd advised you were limited access I would have brought the seven and a half tonner'. Being identified as 'limited access' fits ok with my self-concept, but at the time was displeasing as he threatened to leave the bottles by the side of the road. In the end we dragged them on his pallet trolley into the farm shed but couldn't get them the extra twenty metres over the gravel into the winery. I need to find a friendly neighbour with a forklift in the next few weeks!
I cracked into this new haul to make some mock up bottles. I'm hoping to launch in the summer with a raspberry and blackcurrant liqueur.
