As they say, “It’s a tough job, but someone’s got to do it”. So I guess the responsibility falls on me, again. After all, that booze won’t make its self will it? And that picnic table conveniently placed on the banks of a beautiful Hampshire trout river, will look pretty sad if I don’t cover it with all manner of weird and wonderful alcoholic and psychotropic concoctions and sit at it with a good friend getting drunk and talking wild plants, wild booze and various other nonsense. Actually, if you are interested to know how to make your own Vermouth and numerous variations on the theme, we do cover all the basics in this little film. And I hope that if nothing else it demonstrates that things like this can be fun. So long as you have done your plant ID correctly in the first place the process of assembling drinks like these doesn’t require any of the fascistic specifics and controls that aficionados of home brewing are so fond of. Basically it’s playtime for grownups. I hope you enjoy watching this unrehearsed, unedited and unorganised film, any and all feedback, as usual, is very welcome.
