Quote of the Week: Royal beer

Queen Victoria on the merits of beer

Made in echo of the Athenian tragedian Euripides, who stated: “The man that isn’t jolly after drinking; Is just a drivelling idiot to my thinking”, Queen Victoria was also famed for adding single malt whisky to her claret and was also rather partial to “tipsy cake” – cake laced with alcohol. It seems that in reality this allegedly dour monarch was in fact often plainly rather merry.
