There’s no particular theme to this week’s episode, just plenty of the good stuff we think you should have on your radar.
Starting with our two featured products: Acqua Bianca Liqueur from the Maestro Salvatore Calabrese and the nifty, very natty Crafty Little Rye from The Oxford Artisan Distillery – both great tipples to keep in mind for the warmer days ahead.

Rather than a standard bar review, we’ve gone large, talking about the cool experiences and fab drinks offering at Edinburgh’s latest visitor attraction, the state-of-the-art Johnnie Walker Princes Street in Edinburgh. As for our book, it’s an oldie but goodie packed with great recipes and ideas, it’s the excellent Good Things To Drink With Mr Lyan & Friends.
Then it’s over to Eric Van Beek from Handshake in Mexico City. With four bars in the World’s 50 Best Bars List, Mexico City and its bars are definitely on our must-visit list. Read more about them in the latest issue of The Cocktail Lovers magazine, available now.
And did we mention that we’re proud winners of the Best Food & Drink Podcast in the Publisher Podcast Awards? Time for a cocktail to celebrate:
