and so the journey begins!

Well after nearly 30 years of friendship and 2 years of planning, this blog is now live and our business is about to launch! All updates will be by founders Neil & Mark and will hopefully give you insight into our business as well as the drinks industry in general. Our passion for fine spirits has taken us the length and breadth of the UK and across the globe. We have been lucky to sample fantastic drinks from Europe, Africa, Asia & South America where we found many spirits that were superior to the bland liquids from huge corporate producers that are found on the shelves of every supermarket. 

A lot of thanks for the rise in craft spirits and the 'Gin-naissance' we are now seeing in the UK goes to the brilliant team at Sipsmith who opened the first Copper pot Distillery in London for nearly 200 years in 2009. Fast forward to 2017 and there are now over 130 distilleries open across the UK with the country's thirst for new and exciting spirits showing no signs of slowing down.

Life is too short for drinks with little taste or character and we would love to hear from YOU; comment below with your stories of new drinks that have tickled your fancy and as we at Club Connoisseur always say: Live well. Drink Better.
