Stuff I've traded for a kilo of bacon



1973 Penfolds Grange Hermitage – Grant


About a week ago I made a Twitter account (@Tradeitforbacon) and started tweeting about my bacon! I gotta admit, I was pretty surprised how quickly and how well people responded to my little operation, it seems that (for the most part) everyone loves bacon.

On Wednesday night, I got a tweet from a fella named @gmango_au, who offered to trade me a bottle of 1973 Penfolds Grange Hermitage for a kilo of my free range bacon. At first I thought it was a stitch up, but sure enough, the offer was legit….he even offered to de-risk the deal with a bottle of 2001 Bin 707 in the event the Grange was past it’s prime. This was another no-brainier, trade accepted.

2kg of K.I. Honey + Three Bottles of Wine – Rose & Al

Rose and Al are friends of mine who live in the Adelaide Hills where they regularly enjoy bacon! No joke, I don’t think I know anyone who loves bacon more than Rose, which is awesome. So it was only fitting that my very first T.I.F.B. trade was with her.
