  • Looking through Rosé tinted glasses!

    As I write, the sun is beating through the office window, which has inspired me to return to the topic of Rosé for my blog today.

    Regular readers will by now that I am a huge fan of Rosé wines, and for most of us, thinking of a crisp glass of Rosé conjures up images of sitting in the evening sun on a terrace somewhere in the Mediterranean, which is all well and good, but for...

  • Larkin’s Brewing Co.

    The number of great craft breweries in County Wicklow continues to grow! Larkins have entered the fold this month with their new brewery in Kilcoole.

    Larkins is a family affair headed up by Cillian Fahey, the ‘Larkin’ comes from his mother’s side. Where they seek to differentiate themselves from the growing number of beers on the shelves is through their focus on lager styles. The...

  • Organic Options in our French Wine Sale

    There are quite a few Organic wines included in our French Wine Sale, so I thought now might be a good time to look at the category.

    Once seen as a niche product, consumption of organic wine is now growing faster than that of conventional vintages.

    Their success can be put down to the fact that many Organic producers are now making innovative and delicious wines as...

  • The French Connection

    Each year France comes in at either 2nd or 3rd place in the list of the world’s biggest wine producers depending on the weather conditions during the vintage (although last year saw an historic low).

    However, it is fair to say that no country comes close in terms of their contribution to wine culture globally.

  • Spanish Gins

    The Dutch invented gin, the British added the tonic, but it was the Spanish who perfected the art of a perfect G&T.

    Spain is Europe’s largest gin market with an estimated 3.2 million cases consumed each year. If you have visited the country in the last 10 or 15 years, it’s easy to see how gin has become the national spirit where even the humblest bar could have a stock of fifty ...

  • Embrace Albariño – The Zesty, Fruity Bottles to Drink Right Now

    Galicia is located in the Northwest of Spain on the verge of the Atlantic, it is known as the seventh Celtic nation. The language is peppered with Celtic words, pagan customs still abound and numerous Celtic symbols can still be identified in the stone relics of the region.

    Interestingly, and perhaps because of this historical kinship, the white Albariño wines from this region seem to ...
