The Old Rosie and Westons Vintage CIDAH that Mr A and I were partaking of on Friday in The Tyburn on Edgware Road were of a similar alcoholic nature and were also from a bag that was happily constrained within a box.

By a process of extrapolation:
Wine Flavoured Liquid in a Box - generally not bad
CIDAH Flavoured Liquid in a Box - pretty damn good

So for all values of Booze + 1, goodness = goodness(booze)+1
This implies:

Perry Flavoured Liquid in a Box - really quite lovely indeed, old chap.

Where Perry = CIDAH + n, where n>=1

QED.

Exeunt, pursued by a bear.

For such a comment I christen thee "Girly Man".
Real men use their bare hands and oversized knives.
Hence the skill bit.

Machines? PAH!

About the same strength as the Weston's Bill and I were drinking from a BiB only last Friday afternoon. Splendid summer drink, I say.

Seconded!
Especially when it's non-wine in a box.
Yummo!

any kind of booze in a body bag sucks.

I find that the silver foil bags are preferable to those used by the local coroner. Whilst both watertight, I would suggest the former probably does less to taint the flavour.

Bag-in-box booze generally keeps better than other resealed containers due to taking in little air until almost empty. If the quality of the booze you stick in it starts of rought as sandblaster to the anus then the method of presentation can do little to rectify this.

a fresh body bag might not be so bad. but you certainly wouldnt want to use a recycled one for your booze containment.

Hmm, cider with eau de corpse...

Well, I can't see it tasting any worse than some of the ciders you get at the GBBF?!

Bag in a box - a good thing. Unlike the 2 litre bottles, the cider/perry doesn't oxidise readily and so keeps longer and tastes better.

Mmmmm!

Perry good.

My brother has a disturbing habit of breaking the bags out of boxes of booze in order to squeeze out those last few drops.
