@Cleoriff  @RafaC  @MI5  @pgn  @gmarkj  @BobM  @TallTrees  @lewys-gp  @Martin-O2  @jonsie 

Apologies. There is a typo in Q8 in this quiz - which reads

Q8 FOOD & DRINK 2 Mexata, a brandy based liqueur, comes from which country ?

The question should read

Q8 FOOD & DRINK 2 METAXA a brandy based liqueur, comes from which country ?

 

I hope this does not spoil the quiz for those who have yet to send me a pm with their answers, or for those who have already pmd me. 

If any of those who have already sent me a pm wish to change their answer to Q8, they may do so [but don`t have to if you are happy with answer given].

Apologies again for the typo.
