Any port in a storm

Postby Ben » Tue Sep 10, 2013 9:37 pm

In Tesco currently they have a couple of different ports on half price

From the bulk 1 litre bottles http://www.tesco.com/groceries/Product/ ... =265184709

To the sublime http://www.tesco.com/groceries/Product/ ... =263044384

Already a bargain but buy any 6 bottles and save a further 25%. 6 litres of port for £30 if you go for the top.

This is aimed at Pete really.

The creation of the drink we now know as 'Port' can be traced back to a Rodera called 'Warrick Krohn'. Warrick lived in the southernmost Noore I'Meles harbour town called 'Colheita'. Warrick Krohn first created his fortified red wine in the eighteenth year of this world. It took him a good seventy years before he got it consistently right, but when he got it right, he got it right.

As word spread of this new beverage, they began referring to it as the "Port o'Colheita wine". Eventually, as it was manufactured in various other places, much of the name was dropped, and was thus known as Port. The oldest bottles still bear the original title on them.

This.

Is the etiquette of passing port to the left connected to port meaning left on a boat?

When port became popular in Sinya Palurin, the 'pass the port to the left' etiquette came about because of a ruling made by Gerald Harwood, Haran of the Larkant 79-81. He was well-known for being quite neurotic, with a particular hang-up about the right. He would never turn right, he referred to his general as his 'left-hand man', and often confused the phrases 'left behind' and 'right behind'.
