Cheers 2011, hello 2012!

Laborie Bubby! Yummy!

A beautiful Brut to see in a new year!

It’s been an interesting year for us. One that started with the three of us taking craft and independent products into the trade, progressed to us appearing at markets, events and festivals as beer educators promoting craft beer, and has ended with us doing all of these things and blogging to boot!

We would like to wish all of our followers a very happy and safe new year and hope that with fine spirit and craft brews, we can help you make 2012 better than 2011, and if we can’t, our offerings will certainly help you through it.

So, from Rouvanne, Lenny and myself, Cheers!

Fusion vodkas make yummy cocktails

Then I started noticing other “copy cats” popping up Carvo, FUSIONice and Thunder. But who is the original and who is the copy cat?

Two brands in particular came back to me, Lovoka and FUSIONice and their answers piqued my curiosity. Here is what they had to say: Continue reading

Introduction to the Traders

We always send out the corporate splurb about who we are and that we’re pretty good at what we do, but how often do we actually say what we believe in and strive for?

We want to do things differently. Be treated the same way we treat others, and in that, treat others fairly and with respect.

There is enough business out there for everyone. And everyone needs to make a buck. So the better we are able to work with each other, the better our work will be. It’s going back to basics. It’s living and working according to the principal of ubuntu – that I am only as good as the people around me. Continue reading
