GBP fell to 91.3 pence yesterday, yet another low.

Lowest in over five years.

Will possibly fall a bit further too but if thinking of buying, buy now.

Will be up in a few weeks time but chances of your whiskey remaining intact are slim

Redbreast at 31 GBP is a bargain.

The Quays extension coming along nicely, the glass going on the canopy today. That opening in the Autumn and the pound going like it is there'll be a fair old procession of suvern motors heading north in the coming months.

I was only wondering what it was looking like there at the minute, I'd though the works were a multistory car park I didn't know it was more shops. I'd say getting parking in the run up to Christmas there will be fun if the exchange rates stay as is

Min 2008 = 80p approx

Dec 2008 = 90p approx

24 Dec 2008 = 95p

No guarantee of parity guys or a worsening rate. If you've small items to buy, just to let you know:

A .90 STG rate is about £100= EUR111

A .95 STG rate is about £100= EUR 106

So the difference in rates on a £30 bottle of spirits will be less than 2 euro. There's was value already there in some spirits even 1 year ago due to a lot smaller NI prices as opposed to ROI price - just depends on the brand you're looking for.
