Cask No. 85.45 Young & spritely

The lemon rocket ship

sold out

The countdown had begun as we seated ourselves on board the giant lemon rocket ship with marshmallow seats and dials made of yellow wine gums. A car air freshener hung from the rear view mirror and our destination was plotted in marker pen on a large whiteboard. The rocket had been fuelled with bitter lemon and quality tonic water with cooling menthol and spearmint to prevent overheating. Holding the honeycomb and chocolate steering controls the countdown reached zero and then blast off! With a chili kick the giant lemon soared into the stratosphere, destination… the twin planets of rhubarb and custard.
