  • You're marooned on an island, and a container load of booze washes up…
  • I’d want several hundred barrels of Hopback Summer Lightning, a metric f-tonne of selected single malts top end rums, and a plentiful supply of Hampshire springwater.

    Rum was invented for just this sort of situation.

    Would I have access to sugar? Mmmm Grog.

    An island that comes with a free-flowing mountain stream

    I’m with the middle class champagne swiggers then.

    Fuller’s London Porter.

    Yeah got to be rum, I’m assuming I’m in this predicament because I’m a pirate and every book I’ve read on pirates tells me I like rum most.

    Port, and then spend every day dreaming of a container of stilton washing ashore.

    As above Estrella, what I would get is:

    Cans will keep well and if I open them out I build a reflector to get the attention of passing ships.

    Guinness. Beer AND food.

    Not so heavy/sweet that I couldn’t drink it all evening (which rules out anything by Fullers, or any dark beers).

    Not so strong that I’d be incapable of making a raft after a few weeks.

    Just nice, crisp and refreshing.

    It would have to be keg though to make the raft afterwards.

    If it’s my imaginary desert island, whatever washes up will be what I damn well please.

    If you can make the stream good quality tonic water and plant a lemon tree or two, I’ll have gin please. Bombay Sapphire is fine.

    We have a decent sized island to ourselves with fresh water and a mountain to play on, a 40ft shipping container to build a nice house out of and enough booze to see us through, why are so many in a hurry to get rescued?

    For quaffing in moderation, and helping to light a vast signal fire.

    Any drink you like …. as long as it’s served from a furry cup

    I’d prefer it if the container had been en route from Columbia.

    Each to their own and all that.

    A selection of white and red wines in wine boxes. I await the complaint but that is all the same kind of drink

    Wine boxes for the same reason as given for the cheap cider.

    JD Single Barrel Select and Coke? You might as well use Tesco Value cooking bourbon if you’re pouring it in Coke, you maniac.

    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

    Can I be stranded on Funky’s island? I’d have gone for Maker’s also.

    Why would you bother with all this raft building nonsense, forget corks and floaty bottles…be smart…

    I’d prefer it if the container had been en route from Columbia.

    Or Jamaica…

    Provided you could fashion a bong out of some stuff washed up on the beach and make a lighter…

    @Marcus – Guinness is the correct answer. Apparently you could actually survive on that and nothing else though post-rescue carbs exposure would be pretty scary….as remembered from a drunken party conversation with a nutritionist

    You want plastic bottle booze, but forget the raft idea.

    Build your own floating island and drift over to the other islands where the bones of desiccated alcoholics are bleaching in the sun.

    Scoop up their leftover rum, then drift over to the island of lonely lovelies. (They may be Madagascar apes, but they’ll look like lovelies after 3 bottles of rum).

    Beaten to it with the meths suggestion. I might well be on a desert island but essentially I’ll be living like a tramp so I may as well go the full Harold Ramp and have the meths. Then I can go around the place roaring at coconuts and picking fights with palm trees.
