We present an experimental demonstration of stimulated Raman scattering in a hollow core photonic crystal fibre filled with ethanol. By combining the original transmission properties of these fibres with a highly nonlinear liquid we have realized a very efficient Raman generator. This technique can be applied to other nonlinear mechanisms and opens the way towards the realisation of new fibered components for optical systems.
