Seven surprising Buckfast tonic wine cocktail recipes


Buckfast tonic wine has hit the headlines again following the news the Devon monks who make and sell the wine brought in a record £8.8million last year.

The figures were released by the Charity Commission.

Bucky wine has been linked to violent crime in Scotland, and last week a sheriff in Dundee said there is a “very definite association between Buckfast and violence”.

A spokesman for Buckfast Abbey said: a “small number of people in Scotland are not enjoying Buckfast in a responsible way”

The caffeinated wine has been made at the abbey since the 1920s
