Ever thought about making Genepi but are put off my the whole measuring, mixing and so on process. Well fear not a company called Melanges des Alpes has created a ready to make Genepi mixture called Mt Genep. All you need to do is add ½ a litre of 40% base alcohol.

Rather like Genepi, making Limoncello is pretty easy. Its all about the ingedients.

With the possibility of following the endless winter format and skiing in every month in Europe Val d’Isere opened their non-glacier slope on June 3rd. I believe this is the first time in a very long time. After a very early start from Courchevel we got to Val d’Isere at 6.30 and caught the first funicular up the mountain. Although the ski area was limited and the condit

When it comes to the winter Olympics I’m a bit old school. I like events where there is a definitive winner. Start at the top, finish at the bottom and the fastest or furthest person who stays on course wins. SIMPLE. Downhill events, skier X, biathlon, ski jumping, Bobsled and even curling, which is an acquired taste.
However there are certain events I’ve never managed
