    No but Google has. Must confess to sticking to the various Absoluts from duty free ;)

    Appears that it comes from Luxembourg.

    Must be a common name across Europe then. My wife's Icelandic cousins have provided us with a few bottles of "svarta daudi". Pity I can't stand vodka. I prefer "uisce beatha".

    yeah - I've had some of that before. I don't recall it being startlingly great though.

    I think it's fairly common in the UK - though maybe not that popular. I'd have bought it from the local supermarket when I was at uni - we had a penchant for buying odd named/labelled stuff (to make evil punch I might add :D)

    I agree with you about Absolut being the best tasting vodka (hence my moniker), but I still prefer Glenfiddich any day. There's something about a good single malt scotch that the others just don't have IMHO.

    I once had some bourbon named "Knob Creek", got the bottle too as we finished it and it was £4 a shot!
    It was pretty strong stuff.

    Yeah I've had it - it's OK but not brilliant. Anyone in London should head to Gerry's on Old Compton St and buy a Polish vodka called Bitter Stomach. It's an evil brown colour but tastes wonderful - one of my Polish mates brings me some every time he goes home :D
