  • The things we do for Hannibal Brown… 20th September 2016 at 08.00 AM (0 Comments )

    When we received the call from a good customer that he wanted Hannibal Brown to manage the drinks proposition for his 50th Birthday party, we jumped at the invitation.   The remit?  The best wines, the best bubbly, plus a stash of beer, cider and every spirit under the sun.  This was going to be […]

  • Dentists – best stick to teeth… 19th September 2016 at 05.35 PM (0 Comments )

    Is it over?  The south east of England has been blessed with dry warm weather these past weeks, providing for perfect BBQ weather and my all time favourite pork ribs in ‘mama’s homemade sauce’.  With one toe on the hosepipe, watering the suffering lawn, what better way to while away the cooking hours with an […]

  • Burghley Horse Trials – our favourite event of the year 29th August 2016 at 11.27 AM (0 Comments )

    How time flies… A year ago we experienced Burghley for the first time.  Set in the stunning rolling hills of Burghley House, just outside Stamford in Lincolnshire, this was an unexpected, wonderful discovery.  Ah Burghley – we only have fond memories of you.  We camped in the grounds (as is the norm for most exhibitors) […]

  • My favourite wines this summer… 23rd August 2016 at 11.41 AM (0 Comments )

    Prompted by an email from a loyal customer last night, I thought I’d share some of my favourite tipples this summer.  Kicking off with a sensational rose that, for some reason, we have failed to put on the website this summer!  So you guys are none the wiser until I sort that small issue out.

  • PORK PIES – my most flexible friend 15th August 2016 at 10.37 AM (0 Comments )

    Did you hear that?  The Melton Mowbray Pork Pie Festival took place this past weekend. Radio 2’s Chris Evans had me salivating for one of my porky favourites at 7am on Friday – it’s never too early for a pork pie in my book. I cannot believe I have never visited a Pork Pie festival and I am […]

  • Lambrusco – where have you been all my life? 1st August 2016 at 04.52 PM (0 Comments )

    During a recent visit to the gastronomic region of Italy, Emilia Romagna, we stumbled across a wine which we really weren’t expecting – and it was everywhere! But first, the food.   Bologna is the real foodie capital of Italy, with the local Tortellini, Lasagne and Tagiatelli on every menu in town.  Just up the road […]

  • A very rainy Bolesworth 21st June 2016 at 04.41 PM (0 Comments )

    Isn’t it amazing that just 24 hours after having Hannibal’s van towed out of the quagmire that was this year’s Bolesworth Horse Trials, we were already reminiscing on the joys of exhibiting direct to the public and what pleasure they give us. Last year’s event was a decidedly much drier affair.  This year, sadly, the Heaven’s […]

  • Reporting back on Hannibal’s latest Wine Tasting Event 13th June 2016 at 04.51 PM (0 Comments )

    Many of you will recall the fantastic evening of wine swilling, canape comparing and general foot tapping to the music at Hannibal’s Christmas Wine Tasting.  We held that one at the award-winning Absolute Abode Design Emporium in Raynes Park and loved every minute of it. So when we met the good folk of Wandsworth Oasis, […]
