Roaming at Roebuck

Driving up to Roebuck Estate’s ‘Home’ vineyard, situated near the tiny village of Tillington, the weather, as always, looks to be taking a turn for the worst. Large, dark grey clouds are rapidly approaching like an armada in the sky. As we look out to the distance, across the vines, a bright ray of sunshine […]

It is currently 27 degrees (I had to check my phone for confirmation) as I write this [sorry Al, took a bit of time to upload…!]. Most of the UK’s been bathed in sunny, clear blue skies for what is coming up to a week now. As much as I like this weather, it would […]

I do like a #WineWednesday, but truth be told, to limit a vinous treat to one day a week is somewhat ludicrous, how else are we going to get through the glorious (?!) English summer without a good Monday-Sunday guide of what you [I] could be [am] drinking this summer. So as I sit here […]

Kilchoman STR Cask Matured Limited Edition £89.50 It’s no secret that I follow releases from this most modern thinking of distilleries KIlchoman.

Their latest limited edition is the ‘STR’ meaning Shaving, Toasting and Re-Charring. 43 […]

Well after one of the best summers I can remember, the glorious weather even reached beyond the border into Scotland. It seemed rather strange visiting Whisky distilleries in shorts and a tee shirt! This trip I managed to venture over to the Orkneys for a few days, and first stop had to be Highland Park […]

“Freedom!” cheer the children, while parents and grandparents everywhere lovingly look towards six weeks of wonderful sunshine filled days… Of course I am delighted at the prospect of not having to drag my daughter out of bed for a good few weeks and squeeze in some quality time, but my head isn’t completely in the […]

I often look back to my school days and think “if someone had told me then that working in wine is all science and geography I would have probably paid a lot more attention!” Therefore, these days, I like to make it my mission to spread the word that there is so much more to […]

Kilchoman have released two limited edition Malts this year both of which we have secured a tiny allocation. The Loch Gorm 2018 which is an annual release and the second ever release of a Port […]

There’s nothing like the opportunity to flex our vinous muscles with a stonking issue of our Summer Grapevine. We’ve been inundated with new wines over the last few months and have narrowed down quite a wide field of hopefuls into a few handfuls of delight. Zippy whites, crunchy reds and lots more besides have exceeded […]
