48 Hours in the Agly Valley

A highlight reel of my trip to the Agly valley in South France back in October. We were put up Tautavel and visited some nearby wineries as well as attending the “Mechoui” a traditional North African feast. Fantastic time! Special thanks go to Justin Howard-Sneyd of Domaine of the Bee, Katie Jones of Domaine Jones and Jean Pla

One of the first London Micro Brewers to set the Bermondsey Beer Mile on fire and set the benchmark for craft brewers in the capital. Here I taste one of their ever changing hop combos of Simcoe, Citra, Apollo & Nelson Sauvin in this brash beautiful IPA.
