The taste of blood varies from country to country, depending on which races of people have lived there.

For example, British Celtic blood tends to have a sharp taste while Gaulish blood is smooth and slips down well.

The Germanic bloods are always heavy and strong tasting, while Scandinavian bloods have a bitter edge and are generally not worth pursuing.

Any butler worth their blood will be a connoisseur as they are the ones we trust to buy the blood in.

I do not have a butler and my servant Jane’s taste in blood is very peculiar because she used to be a New Vampire.

I have to lower myself to play butler and buy blood in.  If I left it up to her, I’d be drinking New Vampire sludge all the time.  I detest ordering it for her, but one must keep the servants happy.

I store hers in a refrigerator in the shed in the back garden, while mine is in the main fridge in the house.

New Vampires only like the dirty blood.  We are usually more discerning.

Part of the fun of having a drink is guessing the origin of the blood.

It’s always easy to guess the country, unless the blood comes from someone of whom one or more parents came from a different country.

The true connoisseur can narrow a pure-blood down to the region they came from.  Humans move around so much these days that it’s difficult to specify region, which makes it much more pleasurable.

There has always been movement from country to country, but gone are the days where the country peasant stayed in her or his village and was content with her or his lot.

We mainly drank in towns then, partly because peasants would be missed.
