Rather pleased with this photo; so chuffed in fact that rather than keeping it for a Sunday Wine Shot slot later in the year, as originally planned, I’ve hastened its ‘release’ to today. In the dim light of the Freixenet cellars it is even more remarkable I managed to capture something useable handheld.

It is simply a stylishly lit wine cellar at Freixenet, somewhere in the extensive brick lined depths under the winery. Looking through the ‘passables’, as opposed to the ‘rejects’, taken during our entertaining tour practically all are strong enough to stand alone in this weekly showcase. More to come then…

Warner Edwards Elderflower Infused Gin

The gin itself has a beautifully floral aroma, a subtle Elderflower hue and a weighty palate (due to the sweetness) with an edge of spice and pepper. Cant say I really detected the Elderflower…. but it does make a damn fine G&T with Fever Tree Tonic. I did rather love it sans tonic, just over ice.
