There are little, everyday luxuries and then there’s blow-the-budget all-out luxe. We’re leaning towards the latter in this issue, starting with our brand new look – all sexy heavy paper, matt finish and fancy gold lettering if you don’t mind – through to the content, where we check in to the American Bar at The Savoy for five-star service and first-class drinks and check out some shiny bits of extravagant kit for the home bar.

But first we speak to Thomai Serdari, an expert on the subject, about what luxury means, where it’s headed and how it fits into the world of drinks. Scene set, it’s over to the people who create the feeling of opulence in the bar; read how a music, lighting, packaging and product designer, as well as a consultant, bring their talents into play when it comes to hitting the luxe button.

Elsewhere Douglas Blyde goes shopping in the opulent, new Wine & Spirits Room at Harrods, Miles Watson meets the collectors who splash their cash on vintage drinks, Jane Ryan rounds up the experiences every cocktail lover should have on their wish-list, and fashion writer Julia Robson says that bling’s the thing when it comes to the new dress code for the cocktail hour.
