But with the English joining the party, albeit late, Buckys has soared into the best-selling alcohol brands league table for the first time. It is no longer the drink of violent scotsmen and teenagers in parks. It’s time we treat Buckfast with the respect it deserves, so we’ve made a roundup of some very respectable Buckfast cocktails…Just try not to drink too many of them.

We confess, while we’re really impressed by this year’s rowers, that’s not why we went to the Henley Royal Regatta. No, we went for the parties. It was, of course, a brilliant time. However, there’s a couple of things first timers going to Henley for a party should know.

Spoilers: you can’t have it, put the chopsticks down, sorry. We just want what’s best for you. Of course, we respect any hard core party animals who stick two fingers up to our advice…
