Stones ginger wine

Since christmas will not be the same without Stones ginger wine, does anyone know where I will find a bottle, within easy driving of Basel?

Re: Stones ginger wine

I know what you mean but sorry, you will have to make it yourself. Easy enough and far better than the industrial stuff.

Re: Stones ginger wine

As far as I am aware, and please inform me if I am wrong, ginger wine takes one year to ferment. Seeing as I cannot wait this long, although it would be a far better product, I will continue my search. Thank you for your suggestion anyway.

Isn't that the stuff that when you're done, you fill it with petrol, loosely screw on the cap, and then place in the middle of a bonfire?

Try the quick an dirty version then:
A bottle of any random white, the stuff from Denner that you get in a tetrapak works quite well.
Fresh Ginger from Migros
Aaand a stainless steel grater.
Peel and grate your ginger or Ingwer and collect it in a, well I used a tea-sack, decant your hooch in a jug and chuck the sack in, leave overnight or two, then give your tea-sack a good squeeeeze and serve ice cold.
Tell me how it went when the cheap vino hangover leaves your skull.

Re: Stones ginger wine

Try a Globus. They tend to have well stocked whisky sections. There is a good chance you will find it there. ( although Crabbies is much better)
