The theme for our spring issue is ‘craft’. Little wonder really, it’s probably one of the sexiest words in the spirits world right now. We speak to six independent producers in the UK about the pros and cons of taking on the big guys, Yolanda Evans highlights seven of the best craft spirit companies Stateside; Michael Vachon spreads the gospel according to boutique brands and Ben Norum takes a look at the craft revolution and tries to work out what it means.

Craft and cocktail lifestyle gets a look-in too. If you’re planning a soirée at home you’ll need to curate the perfect soundtrack. Lounge-loving DJ Johnny Vercoutre gives us his ten ten tracks and suggests libations to go with them. And what about the bits and bobs that you serve your cocktails in? Lizzy Barber seeks out a handful of the growing band of craftspeople making their drinks.

The Umbrella Project style it out at the Discount Suit Company

On the fashion front, our cover stars from The Umbrella Project go against the name of their bar, the Discount Suit Company, and show off the craft of this season’s latest styles.

There’s more too – interviews, travel, restaurant reviews and tips on a mind, body and spirit spring clean – that should keep you busy until the next issue in July.
