A wine with an abundance of character. Whilst Pinot Not is a delicate and often difficult grape to grow and work with when it’s got right it is really right. Slander is aromatic to say the least with ripe cranberry, pepper, sage and more red fruits all coming to the fore. Despite all this complexity the finish is wonderfully velvety and supple. As you can imagine with a wine like this, quantities are limited! Read more.

Wine of character is a term often thrown around it seems to me when it appears to be more led by the desire of a marketing team than an actual description of the wine or indeed the winery itself. Here, though, you have the real deal. David Swift Phinney is the man behind what ends up as an unforgettable wine in your glass. From the brilliant labelling to the liquid in the bottle each of his wines have character in abundance. The name Orin Swift is actually a combination of his father's middle name and his mother's maiden name.
A wine to savour with great complexity.

1870 Sour Cocktail Recipe
The Sour Cocktail is versatile – whether you decide to switch up the Whisky, sour or sweet element, the end result will almost always be delicious – just remember to stick to that golden ratio of 2 parts Whisky, 1 part sour and 1 part sweet (but hey, if your personal preference is different, you do you!). The 1870 Sour, also known as the New York Sour ,updates the Whiskey Sour recipe (whiskey, lemon, sugar, egg white) with a float of dry red wine. (Psst, a float is when you suspend the final ingredient on top of the drink!). Everyone loves a good layered cocktail. They are fun to make and look amazing in photos - perfect for Instagram. The New York sour has been around longer than any living human. It’s thought that this cocktail was created around the 1870s/1890's - certainly a modern classic! If you’re after something sweeter, bourbon or brandy are both great options. Prefer a smokier sour? A scotch will be your go-to. When it comes to the sour substitution, lime is a more subtle option if you find lemon too overpowering, alternatively you can opt for a sweeter pick like orange or a more savoury choice like grapefruit. And when it comes to the egg white and no egg white debate, well, it’s completely up to you!
