    First up is Roe & Co, a new venture from Diageo making their return to Irish whiskey following the sale of Bushmills di...

  • Autumnal Reds in our Annual Wine Sale

    There may still be plenty of sunshine about, but It is fair to say that autumn has now taken hold and as the leaves are falling and the evenings begin to draw in, our appetites tend to move towards richer, more robust dishes, the same goes for our wines, so I have chosen below a selection from our Annual Wine Sale, all which are suited to roasts, hearty casseroles and cosy evenings in...

  • Stunning Whites in our Annual Wine Sale

    In my blog last week, I picked out a selection of reds from our annual wine sale, so it is only fit and proper that this week I should turn the spotlight on to some of the Stunning Whites included in the line-up.

    To start off, I have picked a Pinot Grigio From the Friuli region of Northeast Italy where Pinot Grigio tends to be richer and more complex.  Puiattino (€11.95 down...

  • Last of the Summer Sauvignons

    As Ireland’s favourite grape variety, Sauvignon Blanc surely needs no introduction but as the wines tend to be so well suited to summer, I thought I would use this week’s blog to highlight some of the superb Sauvignons we currently have on offer.

    While France’s Loire valley can claim the title of being Sauvignon’s spiritual home, New Zealand is undoubtedly the driving f...

  • New Brews & An Old Favourite

    August is an unusual month for craft beer releases as the weather becomes a little more unpredictable and we move away from summer styles but before we move into the darker Autumn/Winter styles. However, that does mean we get some great variety in seasonal releases. Here is a pick of some new arrivals to our shelves this month with some seasonal releases and a couple of new entries to our core...

  • Wood Key Brewing

    Wood Key Brewing began when Simon and Brian had been working in an Off licence in north Dublin, one of their customers, Andrew, came in and pitched the idea of setting up a business. Andrew was doing an MBA and wanted to put that learning into something he was passionate about. Craft beer came instantly to mind and Simon and Brian where the people who knew beer.
