Every month, Whisky Brother Shop publish their top 5 sellers for the month. It is always interesting to see the old favorites (Glenmorangie, Ardbeg and Glendronach) share space with newcomers. The June the list had an interesting surprise. Obviously, after Ardbeg Day at the end of May, it was expected that the Ardbeg Kelpie will make an appearance. However number 2 on the list was interesting. A South African whisky aged in Brandy Casks – Boplaas whisky.

If you have been following me on social media, you would have seen about my trip to Canada. While John was climbing Denali in Alaska, me and the little one went off to visit some family in Vancouver and spent time exploring this amazing city. While we were there, Canada celebrated its 150th birthday. On the 1st of July, there were celebrations and flags every where. It was amazing.
John climbed Denali in Alaska during June and me and the little one decided to wait for him in Vancouver, Canada. My favourite cousin lives there, so it was a wonderful opportunity to spend time with him. John planned on completing his climbs and then fly out to Vancouver as well to spend some family time in Canada.
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.
