Eight Great Discoveries from the Imbibe Show – a few hours spent wandering the Imbibe show at Olympia; before the crowds got too much! I concentrated on gin but managed to find a super new range of tonics, a Punjabi Rum and got to try the Asterley Bros. Amaro and Vermouth at last too.

Eight Great Discoveries from the Imbibe Show


Pothecary Gin
Pothecary Gin – rather nice I thought, interesting that the botanicals are distilled individually and then blended together.

Herno Juniper Cask Strength Gin
One of a striking range from Herno a Swedish distiller. This is the first producer in the world to be mature a gin in juniper wood casks. A revelation when served with Merchant’s Heart Ginger Ale. They recommend their Old Tom Gin be served with Merchant’s Heart Hibiscus Tonic.

Five Rivers Rum
First time I’ve encountered Five Rivers Rum – the UK’s first white rum crafted using premium Punjabi sugarcane or ‘gur’. Made for a fine Daiquiri. They used a little micro-herb or something as a garnish. Not sure what it is exactly… they kept saying beetroot… micro beetroot sprouts? Could be.

Tinker Gin
Love the packaging for Tinkers Gin and the style was quite striking too. Styled as a ‘Spanish’ gin it downplays the juniper in favour of citrus notes.

Bitter Union Bitters
New to the market – just a few months apparently – three bitters from the lovely people at Bitter Union. Perfect for dropping into your G&T and other cocktails.

Three Rivers Manchester Gin
Three Rivers is the only, indeed the first, distillery in the heart of Manchester. Their suggested serve is with Double Dutch Indian Tonic water garnished with fresh cherries. If you cant get to visit the actual distillery grab a chance to experience a virtual tour via those fancy headsets. Much fun.

Asterley Bros Artemis British Vermouth

Asterley Bros Dispense Amaro
I’ve been part of the Asterley Bros. crowd testing of their products for some time. Fantastic to finally get to try two of the final products. If you desire a totally stunning and fully British spin on a Negroni mix equal quantities of their Amaro and Red Vermouth together with ice. Superb.

14 Hands "Columbia Valley" 2016 Rose
Don't serve this bright salmon pink rose too cold or you will miss the enjoyable white peach, honeydew melon and bubblegum bouquet. ...
Dry Creek Vineyard "Dry Creek Valley" 2016 Sauvignon Blanc
This almost clear colored Sauvignon Blanc has lots of tiny bubbles upon pouring. ...
Tie Dye "Red Blend" 2014 US Red Blend
At first glance I was skeptical about this dark red colored red blend from the North Coast of California. ...

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.
