Favourite Summer BBQ Recommendations

When the temperatures soar and our kitchens become too hot to work in, many of us take our cooking outside to the barbecue. There is nothing better than a cold beer or crisp glass of rose on a hot day. Once you are done with your aperitif we recommend a fruity cocktail or a lovely glass of red to wash down that perfectly cooked steak. We hope that you enjoy our recommendations!

World Gin Day, June 11th, 2022

Expert Picks

Saturday June 11th, 2022 is World Gin Day! This clear, unaged spirit derives its distinct flavour from juniper berries and is often flavoured with other fruits, herbs and spices (called botanicals). While gin has been around for centuries it has only been over the past decade or so that craft distillers have been experimenting with new and exciting botanical combinations thereby helping to reinvigorate the whole gin category. On the 11th grab your favourite bottle of gin – or one of ours below – and make one of the classic gin cocktails: Tom Collins, Negroni, Gimlet or Martini.
