There is a whisky region that almost disappeared. Around a century ago Campbeltown was the most prolific of all of Scotland’s whisky regions. There were more than 20 distilleries in the small geographic whisky region. This dwindled down to just 3. One of the reasons for the decline was the fact that most distilleries in the Campbeltown region had a strong focus on quantity instead of quality.

Baby, it’s cold outside! It is winter in the Southern Hemisphere. Short days, cold nights and frost on the ground. Some parts have snow, rain or slush, depending on where you live. Here in Johannesburg, the mornings start out really cold, then it warms up a bit, just to cool down as the sun sets and it gets really cold at night. It is time for warm chunky jerseys, hearty vegetable soups and hot chocolate with marshmallows. It is time for lighting the fireplace and sitting back with a book under a blanket. For me, winter is a time for introspection and being at home.
