Martini anyone? Whether you’re a gin or vodka fan, we’ve got a winning base for you. In the vodka corner we have Elit, smooth-as-you-like thanks to its signature freeze-filteration process, and representing gin we have the re-released Beefeater Crown Jewel, weighing in at a hefty 50% ABV.

Martinis feature in our book choice, ‘Cocktails, A Still Life’, written by Christine Sismondo and James Waller and starring stunning oil paintings by Todd M. Casey, while artfully made drinks are on the menu at Line in Athens, the latest offering from Vasilis Kyritsis, Nikos Bakoulis and Dimitri Dafopoulos.

In the hotseat we have Dawn Davies, Buying Director at Speciality Drinks and The Whisky Exchange. Who better to ask how to buy, what to try and what we’ll be drinking in 2023.
