  • I love seeing Ceylon Arrack in cocktails. The lovely Simone made me a Maroon cocktail @bustermantis today.  Ceylon Arrack is made from the coconut palm - it’s the same strength as whisky and it tastes like a cross between whisky and rum. I grew up on this stuff in Sri Lanka.  By itself it’s an acquired taste. In cocktails the combination of sweetness and smoky edge makes it very mixable.

The maroon is made with Campari, Ceylon arrack, creme de violette, guava reduction and grapefruit bitters. .

  • Benz “Sociable” 1894. One of the world’s first automobiles available for sale. The single cylinder engine yielded 1.5 horsepower. This car predates Karl Benz’s association with Gottlieb Daimler who was manufacturing more powerful automobiles with Maybach. The British car industry was hamstrung until 1896 - when a law requiring a man carrying a red flag to walk in front of every motorised vehicle, was abolished.  What delightful stories and what a delight that this 125 year old car still runs! .
