Where have Lucas and Chris gone?

It has been a fair wee while since we last posted. So what’s going on? Have we given up on whisky and moved onto Pimms and lemonade?

Well… no. We were both on holiday in Poland. As usual, we were both so well organised that we had arranged for guest bloggers to write some work for us while we were away (delegation, nice). Unfortunately, it seems our friends are slow writers. We ended up not having anything new up for two weeks! But that’s it. We are back with energy and enthusiasm and the ideas are abundant.

It’s not all been fun fun fun in Poland, we have done some work as well. This is just a snapshot of what’s been going on:

  • A fair amount of piwo (beer) drinking
  • Vodka. All sorts of vodka. Cherry vodka, honey vodka, aged vodka and many more…
  • Mead, mulled wine and all sorts of warming alcohols for our epic mountain trek (we will be telling this story a little later and there is a video diary)
  • Lithuanian 90% ‘vermouth’ – we learned how to make this horrible drink and we will show you folks the video
  • Chris searching for bears
  • How to gain 5 stone in 2 weeks
  • Drinking whisky and playing golf (you can take the man out of Scotland)
  • Wearing the kilt and generally getting it pulled up by fascinated Polish women
  • General drunken times

Now that we are back there will be an avalanche of stuff going on:

  • Video diaries
  • More Edinburgh Whisky Blog tastings
  • A big secret charity event (we will tell you more soon, it’s going to be huge)
  • Whisky reviews from us and some of our guest bloggers
  • Cocktails, cigars and generally living the high life
  • Possibly another holiday to get over this one!

So yeah. Buckle up and get ready to be bombarded.
