As we continue to bask in this sunny weather and our vines go from strength to strength the rest of the Estate looks a little parched in places and this means that the wildflowers are out in force (nature moves in mysterious ways). So for my blog I thought I would provide a few images of some key species and attempt not to mention gin, sparkling wine or still white wine at all! So here goes.
The saying goes “boys and their toys”, and in this case my little eyes did light up when I saw the contraption above. A wonderful copper pot still with column and condenser to the side. You just want to stroke it and hope that it goes ‘whizz, pop, bang’ – or is that just me?
The image above was taken last weekend as I caught up on some peace and quiet by asking my four kids, aka The Tribe, to count the vines.
On Monday I was delivering some of our Seven Sisters Gin to a shop and I got chatting to one of their customers and they stated “must be quiet up at Rathfinny this time of year.”
