I'm glad you enjoyed the AnCnoc class, Bruce. I really wish that I had, but I went away with nothing positive from it
The sad thing is, I used to like AnCnoc.
The brand manager seemed to be trying to promote AnCnoc as hip and cool and down with da kids. She reminded me of Ben Elton in the Young Ones sketch of Nozin' Around, the alternative to "yoof tv", who missed the mark just by trying so hard. We had willingly paid to be at the class - there was no need to reiterate that AnCnoc is trying to attract different customers to the ones sat in the room!
And about half the places set with filled glasses didn't have placemats, so I had a fairly drunk bloke leaning over me, moving my glasses so he could see what each sample was.
Yes, Bruce - we should have each had a sample of the cocktail. They said the syrup was expensive and not easy to get (unlikely we're going to replicate the drink then) so perhaps that's why they were so frugal with it. They passed one drink around, but much as I like whisky drinkers, I'm not going to share spit with them.
But it's good to hear another point of view about it
Did Gerry do his usual food combination trick during the class?
Leither, overall it was even better than I expected, and I had quite high expectations before I got there
He didn't do the food combo, so you can tell us now without spoiling the surprise - what was it last year?!
