If I have a nice single malt whisky in the cupboard, I don't drink it with a mixer, but I often have blended whisky, either with ginger ale or, particularly at Christmas, Stone's Green Ginger Wine - typically known as a Whisky Mac. I have also been known to sip a glass of this on its own as it has a nice warming feel to it. It isn't like other wines and you really can't slosh down glasses of the stuff. It is something of an acquired taste and is best sipped gently from a wine glass to properly appreciate the taste and flavour. It's a strong drink and if you have two or three, you'll know about it and you'll sleep well. The alcohol content ... Read the complete review

** Stone's Original Green Ginger Wine ** My mother got me into Stone's Original Green Ginger Wine. She always gets a bottle in every so often and serves a glass to us after meals occasionally. My girlfriend and I do like to get the odd bottle of Stone's in too. There is something just that little bit different about ginger wine. Just like Marmite it is a love it or hate it relationship for most people when they first try it. But before I get on to the taste I must tell you about the bottle. The bottle containing the ginger wine is a beautiful green shade of glass. It looks really old fashioned, warm and homely. Warm being the operative word once you ... Read the complete review

Mm, green ginger wine. I love this stuff, but I'd be the first to admit that it's a bit of an odd drink: basically, it's fortified wine made from a blend of fermented ground ginger and raisins. First produced in 1740 at the Finsbury Distilling Company in London, Green Ginger Wine was subsequently marketed as variously having protection against cholera and being a powerful aphrodisiac! (I must admit that I'm not too sure about the last bit... maybe I'll have to give it a try ;) Like everything else about this drink, the origins of its name are a bit unusual too. Once the ginger wine went into production, High Holborn grocer Joseph Stone was its best customer, ... Read the complete review

I've always had this weird love-hate relationship with ginger beer.......in as much as I don't actually "like" ginger but at the same time I fine myself compulsively drinking it when it's put in front of me..........as I do for Twiglets incidentally! I had never actually seen ginger wine before until I saw Stone's Original Ginger Wine in Asda and so I was keen to try it to see if whether I liked it any more or if I had another weird compulsion! A bottle contains 700mls of the wine and cost me £4.89 from Asda - which I don't think is a bad price really. This looks like one of those old-fashioned drinks because it comes in an old-fashioned looking ... Read the complete review
