    ... in a locally run Whisky bar, myself enjoying local whisky to warm me through, whilst Nat enjoys local gin on the rocks, crazy! After a long chat with the owner and bartender about their vast selection of whiskeys that James would highly approve of, we pop out for dinner across the road from our place, having a tasty dinner that would fill up only a child, not enough for the cold ...
