      1. Wow, my grandpa just offered me a bottle of homemade plum whisky today. I will do the honourable thing and have a couple sips from a glass , but I’m not really looking forward to it


      2. Make him happy… the last time I did that, I was with friends in Paris. My friend Aline’s dad gave me a glass of homemade apple brandy. Yeeeesh, it was horrible, but I put on a good face and was appreciative.

      3. Manners are a must when it comes to anything homemade I believe. Homemade is heart -made , wether plum whisky , apple brandy or unintentional toilet gifts!
