VAT 19 was £7.99 a bottle in Stewarts in 1983...



Just look at them wines... Blue Nun, Mateus Rose, Goldener Oktober... probably almost the entire selection back then lol.

What!! No Buckfast or Mundies  :D

My late father in law used to enjoy an occasional dark rum with peppermint cordial of all things , I like dark rum but with peppermint it just tastes like cough syrup.

I asked him why such a strange mix and he told me that when he was in the Army in Hamburg in 1945 they had plenty of dark rum to drink but it was too strong to drink on its own and the only thing they had to mix it with was the local pfefferminze cordial as every other non essential food products were non existent and he just got usd to the taste.
