Cocktail of the month: Peach Blossom Cup

A delightful mix of 7 yr old flor de cana sugar and peach bitters with the tang of orange juice to invigorate the taste buds. Whisky

Whisky of the month: Bruichladdich Black Art 1989

A rare, beguilling and complex whisky produced with the spell binding craft of Jim Mcewan. Beer

Beer of the month: Flying Dog Doggy Style American Pale Ale

This beer has plenty of character. It has a nice malty smell and pours a beautiful gold with a white 1 1/2 head. Remarkable lacing can be observed on the glass. Mouthfeel is very nice, full but not overpowering. Taste is smooth giving way to an assertive hoppiness with a mocha aftertaste. We love this one and would recommend it to anyone looking for a beer with some character.
