An old housemate introduced me to the concept of gin o'clock, and it's stayed on the regular schedule ever since. The rise of the micro distillery has been a wonderful thing to watch, and Bristol a pretty splendid place to watch it from.
One of the best things about the photography exhibition that I put together for Bristol Food Connections is that it’s brought me into contact with new producers. This was the case when Poco suggested I photograph the makers of The Collector Vermouth for the exhibition there. Vermouth isn’t a tipple I can remember really drinking, but when I found out it’s made by the team behind The Ethicurean restaurant, I knew I was in for a treat. So off to Wrington I went, ready to learn all about Vermouth.
