Something for ...

Christmas !

Yes its on the way, my seasonal brew for the festive season ...

EDB - 'Estimated Date of Bottling' - 18/12/16
How about those of you who said you were going to try it ? How is yours going ? or not at all?
Must admit, bottle no1 of our first harvest, has 'sort of' evaporated via the fridge. Thankfully still another one chilled to perfection, on standby ...

This is going to be a six month 'fermentation' from six good sized Skiathos lemons, kindly supplied by Kay and Trevor. In addition we obtained around another 500 ml of lemon juice, via the 'Juicer' this was filtered and made into ice cubes for later use.

The spirit is Russian Standard Vodka, a 1 Litre @ 40% bottle, and the fancy bottle may be put away for future use in the process ...



Talking of festivities, On Monday it is Pentacost. It might be busier in restaurants and bars because it is a 3-day holiday weekend for many Greeks, who will be visiting Skiathos from the mainland.

Happy Pentecost holiday to them ...
