No no no, it's "tonic wine"... i.e. a thick, red, sweet bottle of filth. I've had two sips in my life - once to see what it was like, and another time two years later because I as thinking "surely it can't be as hideous as I remember?". It was. It's probably the most disgusting thing I've ever tasted. I have absolutely no idea how anyone can even drink a glass, let alone a whole bottle.

It's become part of Ned culture. The bottles are numbered, apparently from where in the 'barrel' they were poured from :rolleyes:, and Neds collect them. It's the weirdest thing ever. "A number 17! I haven't seen one of these since 1999!!". But, with more slurring.
It isn't red and it isnt thick. :confused: You sure you weren't drinking blood?

It is tonic wine famously drank by neds and chavs of the world.
Truly?

And there I thought it was just another euphemism for the chav work ethic :rolleyes:

'Buckfast'.

But I already observe that the irony has bypassed you by a cognitive distance of three to four miles. So, nevermind.
