Drinking responsibly in lockdown

Ok it needs to be said – if you haven’t been drinking responsibly during lockdown now is the time to give it some consideration.

Theres been a lot of tasting new wines going on here, mostly to keep recommendations current and insightful, but some days it’s spilled over pretty well into some more broad tastings including vodka, gin and anything else in the cupboards.

Last year Steve did 100 days no drinking from 1/9 to 9/13 and talked about responsible drinking then too.

Just check your alcohol consumption for the remainder of lockdown. More consumption pretty much equals more sales for One Day Wednesday, but we support responsible drinking above all else.

Xmas feature – first look

I’m totally pumped about this. I can’t wait to bring it out properly, although if you watch the insta stories you’ll already have some idea.

I completely missed Christmas last year which sucked. It wasn’t really in my control and I was gutted. This year I’m making up for it and coming in hot.

So I’m working on the feature, which is intended to be about gift giving but will also have something for the people who’ll be entertaining over Christmas and wanna break out some awesome stuff.

Releasing this week. Get ready.

100 days – update

It’s been 27 days now, with only 2 (planned) exceptions. Can’t remember the first one, the second was an 18th.

Overall, my skin has improved, my sleep quality (not duration) has improved, my fitness (and ability to train harder) and my resting heart rate have improved too – it’s great.

The impact is so large because of how much and regularly I’ve been drinking over the last 12 months or more. The compound impact of it makes a difference all around.

That’s why responsible drinking is so important.

The big time health stuff that the doctors and health pro’s talk about is important, but it’s the day to day issues that can affect the most people in the most regular way.

Even though I’m selling wine, I’m promoting responsible drinking.

You don’t have to have a bottle of wine a night – that’s probably not a good idea really. You can enjoy a good bottle of wine a couple of times a week maybe, rather than a poor bottle every night.

Generally speaking I drink spirits and wine – gin and whisky are my go to drinks but vodka can make its way into the mix too. It’s very rare I drink a beer/lager really. I think a lot of people are becoming the same.

The price points appear to be merging a little, so it’s maybe just as easy to buy a bottle of gin as it is a box of beers. Then a couple of gins per night and it soon racks up.

I want to try and encourage everyone to drink more responsibly, whether you drink our wine or not.

I’ll keep the updates coming as we go.

See ya. x
