As more and more of our customers shy away from the bigger brands, traditional drinks like gin are changing. A market that was dominated by a handful of big producers has started to fragment, with tiny producers suddenly becoming a huge part of gin sales. This is not to say that the big boys are of less quality (buy us a Tanqueray Tom Collins any time), but our customers are clearly telling us it is the time of the independent, slightly funky gin producer.
A group of friends and lovers of Andalucian wine who founded a crack squad of sherry hunters in 2005. They scour Spain’s bodegas for the very finest butts of ancient fortified wines, initially for the pleasure and privilege of the organisation, and latterly for discerning members of the public. It’s basically like the Scotch Malt Whisky Society, but for sherry.
