Repost: Chateau Breuil Calvados Distillery

As a way of saying “Welcome” to all the new traffic, here’s a video tour of Chateau Breuil calvados distillery in Normandy. We did have a couple of issues at the start with missed cues, but it is a good tour by an excellent guide. Their products are also excellent, and highly recommended. If, like me, some of the paint thinner sold many years ago in the U.S. as calvados is your only experience with it, you owe it to yourself to try real calvados from Chateau Breuil. It is very much worth the cost and effort. If you are going to Normandy, it is well worth the stop for the tour and the chance to get products not necessarily exported to the U.S.

A Scotch Review

SaviGuests2I recently was invited to an excellent Scotch tasting, and the review is now up at Blackfive.


A Most Delightful Evening


Over at Blackfive, I have up the tale of a wonderful Monday evening at The Bourbon Bar/Southern Art restaurant at the Buckhead Intercontinental Hotel.  The feature event was a tasting of the always excellent products of Willett Distillery.  Go check it out.
