Hot Rum Cow Issue 4 (The Sherry Issue) is available now on loremnotipsum.com. Join us for Hot Rum Cow Issue 4 as we romp through 3,000 years of sherry history like some jolly, portly Tudor king. We’ll chart sherry’s progress from globetrotting, all-conquering Spanish icon to doddery laughing stock, and back. Obviously, we had to hit Jerez in search of sherry. But our quest for world domination didn’t end there.
We also pounded Poland to find the truth about bland vodka, bashed Belgium until it gave up the secrets of its mysterious Lambic beer, decked Denmark for being home to the world’s most prolific beer tasters and lamped Lebanon for making world-beating wine against all the odds. Closer to home we drew some surprising conclusions from our own twisted taste test, let Iron Chef Martin Blunos loose on the Buckfast Tonic Wine and chatted with Irish comedian Ed Byrne about getting ‘altered’ – Fiji-style.
Hot Rum Cow magazine is an independent publication for people who are fascinated by great beers, wines & spirits – and the extraordinary stories behind them. The Hot Rum Cow magazine is named after a warm cocktail made from rum, milk, brown sugar and nutmeg. Some people love it, others don’t get it – and that’s exactly the sort of magazine we are publishing. Hot Rum Cow magazine was published four times per year by White Light Media (Edinburgh).
