World Buckfast Day

World Buckfast Day

For a long time, red and white wines were considered a classic and elegant drink. While many people enjoy wine and celebrate it, there is one unique wine that is loved by many Scots. It is caffeinated.

Buckfast is the name for this wonderful wine. Every year there are many people who enjoy the history and the fruity tannin taste of Buckfast.

Buckfast Tonic Wine, a caffeinated wine, has been a part of the Scottish tradition from the 1960’s. It was originally made to aid in health and is therefore classified as a tonic rather than a regular wine.

The drink was originally created in England. Buckfast was first created by Benedictine monks from Buckfast Abbey in 1890. According to legend, the Abbey lost its winemaking license and the wine is now distributed by J. Chandler & Company (in UK) and Grants of Ireland. The wine is made at the original Abbey and an additional site to meet demand.

The drink is derived from French recipes. However, the Scots have adopted a similarity to the English and French versions of the fortifying wine, particularly in Glasgow.

World Buckfast Day provides a great opportunity to learn more about this intriguing alcoholic beverage, and maybe even try it!

There are many pubs across Scotland that participate in this celebration every year. Wreck The Hoose is an interesting event that allows people to have fun and drink at the same time. Despite its popularity, the drink has been controversial for the past decade.

The combination of caffeine and alcohol can cause a person to feel depressed. Buckfast was actually linked to years of voting to ban the drink in an attempt to address the country’s drinking problems.

According to studies, Buckfast has been associated with anti-social behavior, and has also been linked to reports of criminal activity. Many politicians have suggested that alcoholic beverages should be limited in caffeine to address this problem. Buckfast contains the same amount as eight cans cola to give you an idea of how extreme it is. That’s a lot of caffeine!

World Buckfast Day was established in the UK in 2015. The day was started by a fan group called “Wreck of Hoose Juice”, and has since become an international phenomenon to celebrate “Bucky” (or “Commotion Lotion”).
