Since starting my YouTube channel and posting drinking videos I have found there are two type of spirit drinkers. One who will always stay with the safe and vanilla brands.

Summer is over and as if by clockwork as the ski lifts close the weather starts to get slightly more soggy. But as I look back over the past couple of months to some of the films I made, to glacier skiing in Tignes, to the flying visit down to Cannes and Monaco, Courchevel’s inaugural Redbull 400, the summer ski jumping world cup.

Back in the end of June I went skiing a few days after the Glacier in Tignes opened for the summer. I made a half decent vlog episode about it and in my list of things to do with glacier skiing was to GO EARLY in the season. Don’t get me wrong I have been skiing in Tignes in the past really late in the season and still had a amazing time probably due to a very cool summer
