No matter what day of the year it is, there is always a compelling reason to enjoy a discerning drink. Responsibly of course.

This hilarious, eclectic and erudite elbow-bending adventure through the calendar reveals what you should be drinking this week – and a fascinating and compelling reason to drink it.

Hosts Ben McFarland & Tom Sandham, aka The Thinking Drinkers, have deftly decanted 40 years of unwavering dedication to awesome alcohol into a podcast that will broaden your booze horizons and make you seem even more interesting than you already are.

Steeped in eccentric events, fascinating facts and with all the cocktail recipes and recommendations a thirsty gastronome requires, this pod arms people with essential, some would say useless, anecdotal ammunition with which to impress your mates over a drink…or two.
