Last year the (in)famous drink has had its National Buckfast Day created and this year the organisers are going global.  World Buckfast Day will be celebrated on Saturday 14th May worldwide.
Originally set out as date to honor the legendary Buckfast Tonic Wine throughout the United Kingdom and Ireland popular demand has turned the celebration into an international event

Organizer Mark Onk told us:  “Some Scottish politicians wanted to ban Bucky blaming it on anti-social behavior. This clearly shows how Buckfast can bring people together. Last year we had people from as far away as Brazil and Australia joining in on the festivities. With young people going abroad to study and work Buckfast is now enjoying an international cult following.” Mark continued “WBD can be celebrated any way you want, anywhere you want, as long as you are indulging in the fine wine and enjoying yourself.” ‘Buckateers’ are encouraged to take part in the event by registering on the Wreck The Hoose Juice Facebook page.
