    What are we drinking?

    I feel that we don't share enough about what we drink in store so this is a little eye opener into a few little tipples I've personally been able to try and my opinions on them. Glenfarclas 15 y/o I’m not the biggest whisky drinker in the world however, I was forced to try this beast and I’m very glad I did. My go to whisky, would be a Dalmore…

    Life's too short to drink cheap wine

    I’ve spent the best part of 8 years working in the hospitality trade where you get paid very little for a lot of work. You would work yourself ragged to please other people. However, I would never skip on the quality of the things I would buy. My friends would call me crazy for spending £50 on a t-shirt or spending £100 on a meal out with anoth…

    Shipwrecked wine: Does it taste better than cellared wine?

    The most famous shipwreck is arguably The Titanic which sank with the loss of 1500 lives in April 1912. As befitting a liner of sumptuous luxury it was packed with fine foods and wines. First class passengers certainly enjoyed lavish, multi-course dinners. Menus recovered from the ship indicate that 10 courses were the norm, each dish paired with w…

    It's beer Bob, but not as we know it.

    Craft beer brewers are forever pushing the boundaries to create new and exciting brews. In fact the one question I get asked the most in the ten-plus years I have been involved in the microbrewing industry is 'What's new?'. Brewers are using new techniques, ingredients and ideas to expand the range of beers and styles available. Some work, some don…

    A Taste of New Zealand

    Well, what a great tasting recently;  6 wines, showing something of the regional diversity and grape varities New Zealand has to offer. Its surprising the degree of diversity considering New Zealands short wine making history. Whilst vines were first introduced in 1836 by James Busby, the Englishman who also introduced vines to Australia, is was n…

    Anything but Sauvignon

    From the new drinkers to the experienced ones, you will see them all at the restaurant or hotel bar, looking up and down the wine list and slump for the one and only, Sauvignon Blanc. To which you can garuntee to see the curator of this craze. Cloudy Bay. I dont have a major problem with this grape varietal, on the contrary I can quite happily enjo…

    Whisky & Water? ...By Steph

    Some say “a drop of water is the best way to enjoy your dram” Some say “whisky is best served on the rocks” Some say “whisky is to be enjoyed straight; out of the bottle into a glass”   I say “whisky should be enjoyed... (Full stop)”   Why Add Water?   Water can alter a whisky in both positive and negative ways. Mo…

    A Man’s Drink?... by Steph

    After being in the Wine & Spirit business for 6 years, I am growing quite used to the raised eyebrows and the odd muttering under breath regarding my love and passion for whisky. Now I enjoy the acceptance and recognition from the opposite sex when they make comments such as “you have changed my opinion on women whisky drinkers” and “you …

    "Tryathon" - because we all need to indulge

    "In the bleak mid-winter Frosty wind made moan, Earth stood hard as iron, Water like a stone; Snow had fallen, snow on snow, Snow on Snow, In the bleak mid-winter, Long ago." Christina Rossetti's poem, later a Christmas carol with a setting by composer Holst, is just as applicable now. The festive season might have blown through. Winter may (and pr…

    Drink Less and Drink Better

    How many New Year resolutions are concerned  with improving our health and well being? I don't know the answer (quite a lot I would guess) but I do know Its around about this time in  January when those resolutions start to bite and we have to dig a little deeper or else fall foul  and resort to our old habits. Perhaps we should be a bit more re…
