Drink O' Clock: Vegan Spirits

Rejoice vegans! Whilst it's a bit of a minefield to figure out which wines and beers are vegan, when it comes to spirits it's much easier as most of them are. Steer clear of anything with milk, honey or egg of course, but if you are a fan of Baileys you'll be glad to hear that, not only the almond milk vegan variety was launched in the UK a few months ago, it's also becoming increasingly easier to find it. And in my humble but boozehound expert opinion, it's much better than the original. Anyway, enough with the chat, there's drinking to be done!
