Launched in 2010 Drinks by the Dram aimed at offering whisky enthusiasts a simple way to sample new releases of single malts at a fraction of the cost of purchasing a full bottle. THe range has grown over the years to encompass over 6,000 spirits. While whisky forms the backbone there are now rums, gins, tequilas, mescal and so on in the range. The idea of buying small samples to discover and experiment is an attractive one; especially as many limited editions are expensive.

The ‘try before you buy’ concept is replicated in their innovative advent calenders – the one featured here is for rum but gin, whisky and spirits versions are also available. There are 26 options to select from ranging in price from £99 to £150.

“A splendid Advent Calendar filled to the brim with 24 of the finest rums, including white, dark, agricole and spiced, hailing from across the world. Contains 24 different, handmade 30ml wax-sealed drams from across the globe.
Boutique producers and world-renowned distilleries From light and sweet to dark and complex Award-winning rums from famous distilleries RRP £149.95” Drinks by The Dram

It seemed a shame not to use this marvellous collection as a proper advent calendar – but for review purposes I had to delve in and crack open a few of the samples. The range is impressive suitable for sipping over ice or for mixing into a whole range of rum cocktails.

The Drinks by the Dram Rum Advent Calendar was supplied as a sample but all thoughts are of the author.

Wine That Stands Up to Pesto
It's officially summer. Unofficially, it's basil season. Right now, I am overwhelmed with the stuff. Pictured to the left is one of my behemoth basil plants. Having a lot of basil isn't exactly a problem, I admit. Who doesn't love basil? But for wine lovers, basil can make for difficult pairings. This is one assertive herb, and you need a wine that isn't going to clash with it, nor do you want your wine to disappear on the palate.















My usual go-to wine when strong green, herbal notes are part of a dish is Sauvignon Blanc. But New Zealand Sauvignon Blancs are often quite citrusy, and US Sauvignon Blancs can be too melony and soft for basil. So I opened a Chilean Sauvignon Blanc--and it was perfect with my linguine tossed with homemade pesto and topped with some heirloom cherry tomatoes.


The 2011 Viña Carmen Sauvignon Blanc Gran Reserva (available for $13-$15 in the market) is made from grapes grown in the Leyda Valley. It has vibrant aromas of grass, gooseberry, and that uniquely weird smell of boxwood that I often smell in Sauvignon Blancs from the southern hemisphere. This wine was green and leafy rather than citrusy, with a backbone of acidity that was neutral in flavor but kept your mouth watering for more. The midpalate was herbal, making me think 'this is what Cabernet Franc would taste like if it were white and not red.' Cool and refreshing, this stood up to the basil. If you have the wine with something less resolutely green, you may find that its assertiveness is a problem but if you have basil, this is a good wine to go with it--and it represents very good QPR.

Full Disclosure: I received a sample of this wine for possible review.
