Tipple to top off a rainy day
THIS week marks the start of Wimbledon and the traditional summer sporting shindig with strawberries washed down with lashings of Pimm's.
Alas the English weather is as unreliable as ever and the drizzle means traditional summer drinks are perhaps not the order of the day.
To combat the unseasonal showers, The Lifeboat in Margate has set up a new Scotch whisky bar to warm drinkers' cockles in honour of our Great British tennis hope Andy Murray. Normally famed for his array of ale and cider, landlord Julian Newick has hand-picked a tip-top selection of independent distillers .
Julian consulted Nick Soper, the European director of the Scotch Whisky Association for advice on the top tipples. Nick, a proud Scot, said: "Scotch is definitely a year-round drink as it's so versatile.You can enjoy neat or with lemon, tonic, ice, cola, lemonade, fruit juice, water and ginger wine."

The tipples span the heartland of whisky with delectable drops from Speyside, Highlands, Lowland, the Islands and Islay.
Julian, 44, said: "Although my ale and cider is exclusively Kentish, I decided to stock a wider range of independently distilled British spirits.
"I source them from The Bottle Shop in Ramsgate which carries an excellent select of Scotch.If you fancy a change from ale and cider, I heartily recommended a trip to the Lifeboat or check out www.thedrinkshop.com
