January 2010 Meeting - Vodka!

January 2010 Meeting - Vodka!

We took a broad view of the meaning of wine at a most convivial January meeting. Tricia and John presented tastings of vodka. We tried vodkas from Scotland, Ukraine, England (or, more precisely, Hertfordshire) and Russia.  Learnt interesting facts about the origins of this formidable spirit and tasted some really delicious morsels prepared by Tricia. The pickled mushrooms went down particularly well!
