The Cocktail Lovers magazine, issue 14 out now!

ByThe Cocktail Lovers


The digital edition of issue 14 of The Cocktail Lovers magazine is ready for your reading pleasure so make yourself comfortable and get stuck in.

We lead with an exclusive interview with our cover star Jamie Oliver, king of the kitchen turned don of drinks. He shares his thoughts on growing up in a pub, working in food and why he has expanded his repertoire to include a YouTube channel dedicated to drinks.

Then there’s our shoot. Where else will you find the greatest names in drinks – we’re talking Peter Dorelli, Dick Bradsell, Tony Conigliaro, Simone Caporale, Alastair Burgess Nick Strangeway and Ben Reed – all in one room together with their pick of the people they think you should watch out for in the year ahead? Hear their reasons for nominating their rising stars and check out the clothes they’re styling out from the new season’s collections.

We also highlight the places we think you should have on your radar in 2015… Some have been around a while and have justifiably earned themselves a coveted slot on the latest World’s 50 Best Bars list; others have yet to open but are already tipped for the top. Find out where you should be going this year and why and get a heads-up on what to order once you get there.

Professor Charles Spence offers a fascinating insight into how the name of a cocktail (or food for that matter) affects our perception of drinks; Ben Norum predicts the trends we’ll be embracing this year and Sam Bompas talks creativity, cocktails and concepts – Bompas and Parr style.

There’s more, including our A to Z of Bars, beautifully illustrated by Melanie Milne (; a life in drinks by Chris Edwardes; tips on keeping your resolution firm with Claire Smith-Warner and Georgia van Tiel and for those keeping off the sauce, there are fresh and fabulous juice recipes from Dan Thomson of SuperNature.

We head to Madrid for G&Ts and cocktails while Joe Macbeth bigs up the bars in Nottingham – all that and competitions too! What’s more, it’s all free.
