PODCAST: Cock Rock & Swashbuckling Psychos

A bats**t crazy rum-drinking pirate and some whisky-sipping American adventurers inspire us to reach for some El Dorado 12 year-old sipping rum and some deer-digesting Jagermeister.

This week’s podcast features phallic-shaped outcrops and death-defying, rum guzzling, swashbuckling salty seamen.

Marvel as we expertly tip-toe around some sensitive issues of the past whilst simultaneously decanting drinks knowledge into you generous ears.

As promised, here’s the picture of Cock Rock (now known as Rooster Rock) and here’s where you can buy some Jagermeister – a much misunderstood digestif made with 56 different herbs, roots, fruits and spices.

Given Blackbeard became a pirate at the tender age of 12, we’re going for some El Dorado 12 year-old in a Rum Old Fashioned.
