It claims that it is good for your health, but as it is most often comsumed by the bottle load it cannot possibly be. It is most common in Glasgow (Scotland), Edinburgh (Scotland) and in Galway (Ireland). The drink is negatively viewed in Glasgow and Edinburgh, as it is associated with neds(scumbags, thugs...). However in Galway it is a drink associated with the student population, who often engage in "bushing"(definition 2)...which is really pleasant given it is most often done by the River Corrib on a bright summer evening.
As a wine it is extremely sweet, and has a strong fruit flavour.
