It's cheek to have around eight pints of oil refined in Turkey (9 letters)

G _ L _ _ _ O _ I

Any ideas please? I sort of get GALLOFOLI but I can't find this word on google and where does the cheek fit in?

To get the fifth letter that is the other clue I am struggling with ;

_ S _ _ (4 letters)

Moving right away to get this wine

The last letter of this word is letter 5 above!

Dawn,
Your second clue is ASTI - Astir minus the R.
I think your first clue must be GALLIPOLI - a peninsula in Turkey.
GALL ( cheek) + I (?) + P (pint) + OLI (oil refined.
Doesn't quite fit with 8 pints unless it's to do with GALLON.

Hi Dawn,

I believe the answer you're looking for is "Gallipoli" (lip being the "cheek")

hope that helps!

Well spotted jonny.
GAL (gallon) + LIP (cheek) + OLI (oil refined)
