The curious case of GIN!
Whilst wine still remains our first passion here at Jaded Palates, the staggering national popularity of Gin and Craft Beers has not passed us by. Devon and Cornwall are awash with fantastic Gin and Beer producers and we're more than happy to showcase the very best of what's available from here in the South West. Our Beer selection is only available in store at present but our Gins on the other hand, are right here...
Ripe exotic fruits, spices and generous length
The Lebanon may be considered an inhospitable place to visit currently (and very sadly), but it remains an ideal location to produce wines: dry, warm and moderated by the Mediterranean. Indeed, wine-making in the Levant goes back centuries. But this is a modern outfit, with some serious French heft behind it: the Brunier family of Vieux Telegraphe in Chateauneuf-du-Pape, and Dominique Hebrand formerly of Cheval Blanc. This is their entry-level version, and very fine it is too: plenty of fruit and body, but with a serious backbone behind it as well.
