    Cheap cider in 2l bottles.
    Not to drink but to make a raft from the empty bottles.

    I’d probably go for champagne

    A desert island that comes equipped with a fridge and/or ice?

    Indeed, so screw-top Lambrini would do me!

    Either go with On and Ons’ idea or prey the shipping container landed in a safe spot, empty enough bottles to create a window / glass wall and spend the rest of your marooned days in slightly more comfort than before

    You could make a raft out of champagne corks, eventually 🙂

    Oooooh. tricky one.

    Plenty of water you say, but no mention of food on the island. Also, no fridge, so whatever it is, it would have to be drinkable warm.

    If that’s the case, then I’d go for either red wine, or water cooler water so I can make an even betterer raft than the one on the neighbouring island that was made with cheap cider.

    Weston’s organic still cider. In those boxes with the tap.

    Help, my legs appear to have stopped functioning

    *cough* cheeky edit

    An island that comes with a free-flowing mountain stream 😉

    Makers Mark or Woodfords Reserve. I’m going for the crazy cast away vibe. Torn clothes, scraggly beard, talking to a coconut and drinking something strong

    Yak. Is it just me or does anyone else find it makes their mouth go ‘foamy’? I find that my saliva gets really bubbly/foamy and I have to spit it out. Weird stuff.

    Yes, I belive quite a lot of people go a bit frothy/foamy about Brewdog.

    Ok then, Hop Fiction or Dead Pony? 🙂

    Whatever’s cheap and strong in case my escape attempts don’t go to plan and I need to resort to a far more permanent escape tactic

    Island with water? I’ve seen this on the telebox. These sort of islands are heavily populated with turkey, and obviously fish.

    So, then I’m going Bourgogne then. The lot – reds and whites.
    Failing that, Japanese whisky – the lot. I think this is an unexplored area for me and i’ll have plenty of time.

    I feel like I should apologise, but I won’t.

    Easy there hot-shot; one kind only, no varieties on a theme.

    Red wine? Oh come on – desert island, you’re going to mainly be eating fish…

    I’d probably go for the 2l cider option, though I don’t know what kind of raft I’d be capable of constructing after emptying the bottles

    One of the Cloudwater IPA’s (for the Punk IPA lover, this is a huge taste step up!)

    Damn, rumbled.
    Right then i’ll go for a decent all-rounder – Nine Popes by Charlie Melton.

    Johnx2, of course, how silly of me! In that case, I would have to go for something dry and white, but hope that, against all odds, the gentle lapping of the surf could chill it enough to be palatable.

    After all, one should not lower oneself to the wrong wine, one would get thrown from a train.

    Don’t worry, you have

    No wait – I’m going for a mild instead – more calories n’fibre.

    Full shipping container size, holding tens of thousands of bottles/cans of the same kind of drink. What would you want it to be?

    (let’s assume you have plentiful fresh water on the island).

    I’d probably go for champagne.

    I’d want several barrels of Hopback Summer Lightning, a metric f-tonne of selected single malts, not too peaty and a plentiful supply of Scottish springwater.

    No, but you do get

    Well, that’s nice, but you can only have one thing (only one malt if that’s your thing). It could be a Scottish island though for your spring water needs.
