Shockingly, this was the second of three bottles finished in one evening. But there was a multitude of excuses. We had just come back from our Russian-themed WYSO concert where Scheherazade went particularly well. Amy's bassoon twiddly bits were fantastic. So we had one thing to celebrate. Then we had Duncan, Rachel and a random Estonian called Gunnar(rrr) come over, so we had guests to entertain. And Gunnar(rrr) makes his own vodka, so I needed to show him a variety of flavours. (He was particularly impressed with this bottle of gooseberry, and rightly so.) There was also the small matter of Rachael's pregnancy.
NB - Note the different spellings of Rachel and Rachael. One is a friend, the other is my sister.
