The Late Peter Yates Birthday coming up soon.
Wish Yates Wine Lodges still honoured his bequest: the Birthday Port, which was at a stunningly low price.
Have posted on here in the past about the stuff.
I think they no-longer do it.
Googling certainly did not find it, and the last mention I could find of it on line was some bottles on eBay, changing hands at collectors prices!

From daily mail 1996
A LANCASHIRE man is distilling whisky in Wigan and selling it to . . . the Scots.
Jeff Hampson, a qualified brewer, began making his Red Rose Lancashire Whisky ten years ago. Now, with three staff, it turns out 50 cases a week at around [pounds sterling]13 a bottle, some of which goes to bars and restaurants in Scotland.
If memory serves the Hampsons ran Potter's herbal remedies.

They did i-spy, though the whisky was brewed and distilled in Burnley. It is now a collectors item.

Didn't one of the Hampsons marry Jennifer Moss the Wigan actress who was coronation street's first problem teenager

Yes, Peter, was a bit of a wild black sheep apparently.
I doubt this whisky would be glugged.
