Are you doing ‘Dry’ this January? If so, we’ve got your back. In our last episode in this season we’re putting the growing non-alcoholic category very much in focus and trust us, we were very impressed. We start by tasting two new products, High Point Ruby Aperitif made in Cornwall and Savyll, a range of ready-to-drink cocktails from London. Lyaness is our bar of choice. Why?

And book-wise, it’s all about Kingsley Amis’s cocktail essays, ‘Everyday Drin ..read more

We’ve always liked the look and feel of velvet as a fabric but the new bar at the Corinthia Hotel in London, takes our love of Velvet to another level.
