Everything you need in a ship’s bar…
It’s important to drink on board to stay hydrated, but to drink well is good for the morale of the crew;)… so here is my Top 10 list of the best sailor’s drinks…
10. Twinings Tea
Tea (with, or without the rum;) is a great boat drink, it goes well at any time of day and it’s perfect for keeping your hands warm during long and cold night watches…
9. Nescafe Cap Colombie
Coffee is a great way to wake up and it keeps you alert during night watches. Nescafe Cap Colombie is easy to make on the boat and it tastes great with 100% Arabica beans from the finest regions in South America and roast them lightly to achieve a medium bodied coffee taste with a wonderful honey finish…. and if you can install a machine on the galley, you can also enjoy a good Nespresso, like Emirates Team New Zealand:)
8. Red Wine
Nearly all scientific researches show the positive medical benefits of red wine consumption… and it is common knowledge that wine tastes better on the boat:)
7. Grey Goose
Grey Goose was named the best-tasting vodka in the world by the Beverage Testing Institute. As advertised, it goes great ‘on the rocks’ after sailing with oysters in the cockpit…
6. Johhnie Walker Blue Label
Johnnie Walker Blue Label is blended to recreate the character and taste of some of the earliest whisky blends created in the 19th century. If it’s good enough for Jude Law and Giancarlo Giannini on a Baglietto Sailing Yacht, it’s certainly good enough for me:)
Beer is great to drink to have while sailing, to celebrate a safe landfall, or when partying on shore and Heineken is the world’s most international premium beer that sponsors a popular St Maarten Heineken Regatta…
4. Chivas Regal
Chivas Regal is the flagship Scotch whisky brand with a perfect motto: ‘Live with Chivalry!’ which is encouraging us to live life with honor, loyalty and gallantry. It is stronger than simply an act. It is about staying true to your word and leading by example, standing up for what you believe in no matter what.
3. Captain Morgan
World-famous dark rum named after Captain Henry Morgan, the famous Welsh swashbuckler who became the governor of Jamaica with the best slogan: ‘To Life, Love and Loot’.
Beer is always a popular drink on board… and what better brand to have than the one that sponsors a greet tall ship Alexander von Humboldt with green sails!
Jameson – blended Irish whiskey doesn’t need ice, so it’s not only a perfect ingredient for Irish Coffee, but a great drink for celebrating that perfect moments on board;)
