Blog: Olly WehringNo ID? Tough cheese

Olly Wehring | 6 January 2009

Responsible drinking. I wonder how many people neither pregnant nor on medication embraced this concept over the festive period...

Still, it seems that the UK's fourth largest supermarket, Morrison's, has taken the idea to new levels.

According to local reports, one store in Leeds, West Yorkshire, asked a student to hand over ID before selling her whisky-flavoured cheese.

A Yorkshire Evening Post article quoted student Hannah Craig, aged 30, as saying: "It didn't even taste of whisky. I've no idea how many you'd have to eat to even get slightly tipsy."

That sounds like a challenge to us. So, the first person to get tipsy on an alcohol-flavoured food will receive a free piece of whisky-flavoured cheese. news@just-drinks.com.

Independent verification is required. Vodka jelly does not count. 

A Morrison's spokesperson was not immediately available for comment when contacted by just-drinks this afternoon.
