Buckfast Tonic Wine

Buckfast Tonic Wine, commonly known as Buckfast or Bucky, is a fortified wine with caffeine, licensed from Buckfast Abbey in Devon, England and distributed by J. Chandler & Company in the United Kingdom and Grants of Ireland in Ireland.

Buckfast is widely drunk in Scotland where it has become associated with the loutish ned culture. Jack McConnell, the former First Minister of Scotland, has labelled the beverage “a badge of pride amongst those who are involved in antisocial behaviour”. The highest retail sales are in Glasgow and the surrounding areas, particularly East Kilbride, Hamilton, Cambuslang, and Coatbridge.

The wine, which is still manufactured using many of the same ingredients, is based on a traditional recipe from France. The Benedictine monks at Buckfast Abbey first made the tonic wine in the 1890s. It was originally sold in small quantities as a medicine using the slogan “Three small glasses a day, for good health and lively blood”.
