Southampton Drinks

The Rockstone

There is a great selection of white, red and rose wines; as well as champagne, beer, ciders, spirits, soft drinks, and hot drinks to choose from at The Rockstone.

Why not try the Laphroaig 18? This “beast of an 18 year old whisky with oak sweetness and notes of peat smoke, lots of depth and a long, lingering finish” originates from Islay, Scotland, and is absolutely amazing.

How about a Naga Chilli Vodka to add a hint of fire to your day? Their drinks menu states that this drink is “Only for the brave. Or foolish.”

There are three hot levels with this drink, and the hottest involves a signed disclaimer before you purchase it. Doubting whether this vodka potion is the answer? It’s worth a shot.
