    Okell's MacLir wheat beer.

    About this the brewery writes," Manannan Mac Lir. "Son of the Sea" and the mystic Celtic warrior god after whom the Isle of Man is named. It was only time then, before we at least honoured him with a decent beer. We think he would be proud. MacLir, clouds and clears on pouring much like the legendary cloak of mist, with which Manannan is said to have protected the Island from invasion…and sub-standard beer."

    Hmm,
    been drinking the same three beers for thirty years so can't see me changing for nautical fashion guys, favourite tipple is Bacardi 151, a love born when I lived in the States, though it's so expensive under British duty rules I haven't had a sniff in four years and apparently if you transport it by air in your luggage now, you're a terrorist....

    Just looked up how much I could get some for and it's been discontinued due to spontaneous ignition lawsuits - well it was the only booze I've ever seen with a flame arrestor across the mouth of the bottle... *sigh*

    One more example of an ale named after a ferry is Snaefell, which in turn is named after the mountain on the Isle of Mann. There is a spelling mistake on the label depicted.

    Anglo-American family and taking the boy to see the Mayflower exhibit in Plymouth this week, we took him to the Mayflower Steps last year - well we ran into it by accident looking for the Aquarium and he was underwhelmed to say the least...

    I don't think we'd set up the right expectations, given his first statement was "Umm they don't go anywhere?" well they do go downward and just stop

    Then we really went Jules Verne and he said, "was it a submarine?"

    I had a sudden vision of dozens of puritan couples lined up (well they did go into the Mayflower 2 by 2 didn't they?) with each of the ladies carrying the family belongings wrapped up in a black tablecloth
    Each couple walking down the steps and dropping stoically feetfirst into the water, before upending and plunging down to swim to the submerged, nautiluslike submarine's hatch.

    I really hope we find the new Mayflower exhibit has a diorama of exactly that, and I'd pay extra to see it

    A monkey's fist or monkey paw is a type of knot, so named because it looks somewhat like a small bunched fist/paw. It is tied at the end of a rope to serve as a weight, making it easier to throw, and also as an ornamental knot. This type of weighted rope can be used as a hand-to-hand weapon, called a slungshot by sailors.

    The Business of the commander-in-chief is first to bring an enemy fleet to battle on the most advantageous terms to himself, (I mean that of laying his ships close on board the enemy, as expeditiously as possible); and secondly to continue them there until the business is decided.

    Admiral Vernon's Old J Spiced Rum

    The manufacturers wrote,"

    It all started in 1740, when Admiral Edward Vernon enforced a reduction in the strength of the British Navy’s rum ration. When his men complained, Vernon suggested the addition of limes and sugar to make the drink more enjoyable.

    Old J has been created in honour of this unlikely mixologist who was known as Old Grog. However, Old J brings Vernonīs concept into the 21st Century by using the finest Caribbean Rum combined with our secret blend of spices, sugar, vanilla and Persian lime.

    It took over sixty trials before the perfect harmony of ingredients was found, and Old J’s smooth and spicy flavour profile was born.

    Old J is now available in five, unique varieties, with the same blended base spirit used throughout—except for in Old J Gold, which uses a British Virgin Isles rum from a pot still."

    There are several versions of Admiral Vernon's Old J rum. This one is flavoured with marasca cherry.

    HMS Grey Goose.


    With regard to our sailing navy the relevance of a grey goose came with the definition of dawn. When you can see a grey goose at a mile, it is time to send two lookouts aloft, one to the foremasthead and the other to the mainmast, and watch the horizon. ... the routine by which one of the King's ships greeted a new day at sea in wartime.

    The CO of HMS Grey Goose was the naturalist Sir Peter Scott who founded the Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust here in Gloucestershire (about 2 miles from where I am now).

    A third member of the Old J range is Old J Silver, a less spicy white rum.
