Perfect for home cocktails | The Botanist Gin
The Botanist Gin is a progressive exploration of the Scottish island of Islay, made at B Corp certified Bruichladdich Distillery. 22 hand-foraged island botanicals are gathered around the bogs, hills, and shores of the distiller’s Scottish home according to their peak picking season. Painstakingly distilled in a unique Lomond still, the low pressure, slow distillation results in a complex and highly viscous dry gin – perfect for mixing high quality Martini at home, or for a refreshingly layered Botanist and Tonic.

Foodie holidays | Explore Worldwide
Travel and food (and drink) go hand-in-hand, don’t they? So imagine a food-focused holiday that shows you the highlights of a place, and an insight into its culture and traditions through its cuisine. Perfection. Explore Worldwide has launched a new collection of 10 small group food adventures, immersing holidaymakers in Tuscany, Portugal, India, Jordan, Georgia, Peru, Vietnam, and Japan. You’ll take in the country’s sights, but also search out authentic fare, eating at food stalls, enjoying home cooking, meeting local producers and suppliers and trying regional specialities – perhaps even making them for yourself.
Smokey taste of Islay | Port Charlotte 10
Port Charlotte 10 Year Old is a heavily peated Islay single malt hailing from B Corp certified Bruichladdich Distillery. An alternative to the medicinal style of malts that Islay is famous for, Port Charlotte’s smoke is more subtle, with a soft, heathery, barbeque smoke. Going beyond just its flavour profile, Port Charlotte malts are considered the alternative Islay in their production methods too. Always distilled, matured and bottled on the island, they are a true product of their community. This particular expression is matured in ex-bourbon and ex-wine casks, and at 50% ABV, delivers maximum mouthfeel in every drop.
