When Gerard, my husband of thirty eight years, questioned my excessive use of Barrettine's Methylated Spirit, I told him that It's the most effective way to rid one's calligraphy brush of stubborn Indian Ink. However, if truth be known, the consumption of Barrettine is the ONLY effective relief I have found from this utterly nightmarish sham of a marriage. If only I could leave my husband and marry a 6ft bottle of Barrettine.

From the moment you remove the cap you realise you're in for a treat. Fresh, bright, smoky, with a mineral edge and rounded, fruity nose. Midweight and bold, possessing some edge and no little bite, yet remaining smooth, balanced and satisfying. This is a drink to enjoy with friends in a park. Highly recommended.

I can't recommend this product highly enough. If, like me and my social circle, you spend a great deal of time "alfresco" but are plagued by the regular appearance of the local constabulary who insist on pouring our previous beverage of choice "Old Wurzel's Lightning Strikes Cut Price Cider" down the nearest drain then be cheered by the harmless appearance of Barrettine's Methylated Spirit. No longer are we harassed while conducting our outdoor Philosophy Seminars (occasionally taking a break to offer to Punch the Lights Out of random passers by) but instead, we merrily assure the Boys in Blue that we are, of course, merely using this Purple Elixir of Life to aid the Boiling of our Billycans. Admittedly, the loss of eyesight and cognitive reasoning that accompanies our consumption of this excellent product could be seen as a slight downside. But we prefer to view (admittedly with great difficulty) the world from a "Glass Half Full" perspective.

I thought I had mastered responsible drinking, until that is, I woke up in hospital 2 weeks after hosting my first (and last) Barrettine Methylated Spirit shots party. I don't know if it was the number of forfeits that broke me or if it was the sixteen pints of Barrettine shandy, but when I eventually collapsed face-first onto a tealight it took three buckets of sand and the garden hose to put me out. My firey breath actually melted my dentures. My mate Ronnie came off even worse and is still in Urology Intensive Care. It's one thing to light your farts after a couple of pints of Guinness, but those Barrettine Methylated Spirits bottles should really carry a warning about that sort of thing. Poor Ronnie, he was lit up like an oil rig gas flare and we still can't find his trousers. As nights go though, it was certainly a memorable one - so much so that the boys from Red Watch are planning on using the footage taken in the house in one of their fire safety training films. Accordingly, I'm giving it 5 stars, but only on the understanding that nobody should try this at home.

I just thought I should pop on here to give my seal of approval for Barrettine.

A couple of years ago I was on edge, stressed by my promotion at work, paying for a mortgage on my 5 bedroom detached, keeping my wife happy. I had no way to release myself. Then one day whilst walking my corgi's through my local park, a young man gave me a bottle of the juicy blue liquid. He told me this beverage would relieve me from all my woes. On that recommendation I guzzled it down like a school boy getting pop, and since that beautiful day I've never looked back.

Life has become bearable again. Don't ask me how because my memory doesn't exist any more. All I know is no more house, no more whiny wife, no more ungrateful kids!! I'm like a maverick living under a bridge, work my own hours relieving old men for my next bottle of the captivating, aromatic, beauty juice which is Barrettine. Most days I just squat in the park, keeled over waiting for a nobody to look at me the wrong way so I can squeeze out a cigar into my cupped hand and launch it towards their path like a Roman warrior. What's better is I walked past a shop the other day and saw the reflection. I finally had a smile on my face. Kind of one of those sideways ones which looks like you may have had a stroke the day before, but still a smile.

Thanks Barrettine for making life worth living again.

Based on the strong recommendations of a number of reviewers on the Amazon site, I recently took a bottle of 2011 Barrettine to a dinner party to which I and my wife had been invited. Handing the bottle proudly to our hostess with the obligatory box of Neuhaus chocolates, I was disappointed to see her somewhat frosty reaction. Assuming this was a judgment on the small size of the bottle, I assured her that Barrettine's had not yet acceded to the popular demands for a full 75cl bottle and that the smaller volume of the bottle should be in no way be seen as detracting from its overall quality. When I later heard the sound of her crying behind the kitchen door, I assumed that this was the result of some disappointment at the over-cooking of the salmon, but in a later email from my hosts I have since been informed that a bottle of Barrettine's is not universally appreciated at such occasions.

I mention this story simply to help other readers avoid such a social 'faux pas' themselves, and in future I will certainly test out my hosts' attitudes with some indirect questions about Barrettine's at the point of invitation. Still, in the context of a wider milieu of cultural mediocrity, I say 'hats off' to Barrettine's for a product that can still excite such strong passions and debate.
