the winds of change

This may sound a bit corny, but as a person I feel very connected to the seasons. How different times of the year present themselves – smells in the air, colours in the fields and on the trees, the length of the days, even the tone of the sunlight at dawn and dusk – all evoke strong feelings. Maybe all the yoga I’ve done during the lockdown has made me a bit too grounded and ‘in touch’ with Mother Earth, or maybe there is a part of the human consciousness that does connect strongly to physical shifts in the world around us. The transition from summer into autumn evokes particularly strong emotions. I’m a summer baby and always sad to see the bloom, warmth and energy of the summer come to an…

pink pepper gin springs out of lockdown with new animated short film

Having been crowned Craft Producer of the Year at the World Gin Awards 2020, Cognac-based distillery Audemus Spirits was certainly enjoying something of a purple patch earlier in the year. Now it’s emerging from lockdown with a new Wes Anderson-inspired animated short film: The Home of Pink Pepper Gin. Australian founder and distiller Miko and his English business partner Ian both live in Cognac, France. The Audemus distillery is attached to Miko’s home and Ian, whose quirky homemade animated clips populate the brand’s Instagram account, lives in a manor house nearby. These two worlds combine in The Home of Pink Pepper Gin, an artistic animation that communicates the suite of botanicals that make the brand’s award-winning Pink Pepper Gin. Only two ingredients are omitted from the story and they remain a closely…

cornish distiller releases ‘a rum for gin lovers

Cornish gin maker Penryn Spirits is hoping to shake up the spirits market with the announcement of its new release, Bora – described as ‘a rum for gin lovers’. The botanical rum is lighter and more aromatic than traditional spiced rums and is more at home in a glass with tonic than cola. This rum is proud of its heritage: it’s distilled using locally sourced botanicals including nettles and quince; its name is Cornish for dawn; and the black and white bottle design is inspired by the Cornish flag of St Piran, the county’s patron saint. Bora Botanical Rum is also a carbon-negative spirit: it is made with sustainable distilling techniques and uses eco-friendly packaging, and the distillery offsets its emissions by planting trees in Cornwall. Pete Mack and Willoughby Werner, co-founders of…

opihr unveils new g&ts in a can

Opihr Gin is hoping to spice up the UK’s ready-to-drink (RTD) market with the release of two new products. The G&T cans, using its signature spiced gin, went on sale in Tesco in August followed by other consumer channels. The cans combine Opihr’s London Dry Gin with a quality tonic and come in two enticing flavours – with a dash of ginger, or a twist of orange. The 250ml cans are 6.5% ABV with a recommended sale price of £2. Opihr said the releases were a response to increased consumer demand for RTDs – sales of which rocketed up 26 per cent in May, as more people held socially distanced gatherings outside in response to the Covid-19 pandemic. Russell Kirkham, marketing director for Quintessential Brands UK, which owns Opihr Gin, said: “With consumers…

new summery seltzers from 58 gin

London distiller 58 Gin is hoping to capture the hearts of hard seltzer fans with two new releases. The distillery’s gin-based hard seltzers are a fresh take on the low-calorie alcoholic beverage, which is popular in the US and growing its profile in the UK. Released in pink grapefruit and raspberry flavours, the 4% ABV seltzers have fewer than 70 calories per can and offer a fizzy refreshment for those watching their alcohol intake or their waistlines. The drinks are made with 58 Gin’s London Dry Gin, contain no artificial ingredients, added sugars or sweeteners, and are gluten free and vegan. Carmen O’Neal, managing director at 58 Gin, says: “With most people continuing to socialise outdoors this summer, the 58 Gin Hard Seltzers provide an exceptionally smooth, light taste that offers pure,…
