I Love Italy

I Love Italy

I love Italy.  I love its dramatic scenery, the honesty and passion of its people, its food and most of all its wine. Sure, there is plenty wrong with the country. The sclerotic bureaucracy, the corruption, a fatalistic acceptance of organised crime and a dark affinity to nationalism, the erratic driving and the often ambivalent … Continued


2018 – The Goldilocks vintage

2018 – The Goldilocks vintage

“Not too little, not too much…just right.” The global wine-trade descends upon Bordeaux every April, armed with the familiar cliché, “Can you compare this to another vintage?” 2018 is a unique vintage, Bordeaux has rarely, if ever, seen such extremes of cold and rain during the first half of the year, followed by a seemingly … Continued

The One Where They Do Some Marketing

The One Where They Do Some Marketing

In Season 1, Episode 24 of Friends, called ‘The One Where Rachel Finds Out’ (I had to look that up, I don’t just drop that in like we all reference the show daily and it’s still 1997), Joey says to a lovelorn Ross, “Please. Move on. Go to China. Eat Chinese food.” To which Chandler … Continued


Rum and The Future

Rum and The Future

Year after year, pronouncements from various industry magazines and merchants suggest Rum, as a category, has a bright future as the “Next Big Thing.” But, it has always struggle to gain purchase on consumers, so the question is: “why?” In an article in Imbibe last year, Nate Brown suggests that rum suffers from an identity … Continued


Should we care about who makes the wine we drink?

Should we care about who makes the wine we drink?

One of the main reasons anyone falls in love with wine (as opposed to regularly downs a bottle or two– there is a difference) is its diversity and its ability to stimulate thought and emotion, but in common with all agricultural products, that diversity is diminishing in an age of mass production. With the level … Continued


2017 Burgundy En Primeur

2017 Burgundy En Primeur

Founded in 1891, The Caledonian Club is known as a little bit of Scotland in the heart of London. It’s also a stone’s throw away from our shops in Belgravia and Knightsbridge, making it an excellent location for our annual Burgundy En Primeur tasting. Whilst the Scots were busy setting up their 19th Century enclave, … Continued


2019: The Year of Zero Alcohol?

2019: The Year of Zero Alcohol?

As January begins, the excesses of the festive season come clearly into view: the morning after the night before, when a detox from all the rich food and booze seeming like the only corrective. “Dry January,” the movement of abstaining from alcohol for the entire first month of the year, has grown in popularity over … Continued


Bark! The Disheveled Afghans Sing!

Bark! The Disheveled Afghans Sing!

When we were asked to partner up with the Dogs’ Trust for their annual woof-a-long Carol Concert at Chelsea’s filmic, if unimaginatively named, ‘Old Church’, we damn near bit their hands off, in the style of an irascible Jack Russell*. We were more than chuffed to serve up some Prosecco, some reds, some whites, some … Continued


For Goodness Sake

For Goodness Sake

Over the last decade, our tastes have fundamentally changed. The American obsession with craft brewing came to the UK shores and introduced us to resinous, bitter hoppy flavours through big IPAs. Likewise, the gin revolution – ginvolution perhaps – has introduced us to a whole new spectrum of flavours, ranging from the highly citric, through … Continued
