Coffee: (I Love My) Weasel Cafe Blend

Coffee: (I Love My) Weasel Cafe Blend

This is one of those times where branding has left me confused and uncertain about something that, on the face of it, I should be instantly in love with.

I’ve tasted whisky from The Lost Distilleries before, and was pretty impressed by it. As the name suggests, these are blends made from whiskies made in distilleries that are no longer with us. Unsurprisingly, this results in some expensive bottles – around the £350 mark, if you can even find them. The Lost Distilleries Blend [read more]
