SCOTTISH LEADER’S OUTSTANDING 12-YEAR-OLD SCORES GOLD AT 2018 WORLD WHISKIES AWARDS

The luxuriously silky and rich Scottish Leader 12-year-old whisky, the flagship of the internationally renowned collection, has been awarded a prestigious gold medal by the World Whiskies Awards in the UK, during a first round tasting.

The judges praised the whisky for its signature smooth, rich and sweet profile that has earned the brand a significant international following over the years.

Scottish Leader 12-year-old is crafted using a bespoke blend of the finest unpeated Highland and Speyside malts, combined with Scottish grains for a smooth, approachable style. The majority of the Highland and Speyside malts selected are matured in American oak casks which contribute toward the rich oak and vanilla characteristics, and the fruity, floral elegance.

Says Dr Kirstie McCallum, head of the highly skilled Scottish Leader blending team: “It’s not the first time this impressive spirit gets recognised, having earned gold at both the 2016 and 2017 editions of the International Spirits Challenge (ISC), and a gold outstanding medal at the 2015 International Wine & Spirit Competition; it truly features outstanding quality, flavour and skill. Our team is celebrating this acknowledgment. It really means a lot to this dynamic brand that stands for the richer possibilities, brought on by taking a new perspective.”

“This new perspective ethos is also the driving force shaping our marketing campaign in South Africa, a key market for the brand where Scottish Leader 12-year-old was launched a little over a year ago,” explains Meryll Stocks Roos, marketing spokesperson for Scottish Leader in South Africa.

“The promotional drive involves a mutually beneficial collaboration with the I See A Different You creative collective to encourage and further establish a shared narrative with an Afro-optimistic outlook. It’s aimed at those prepared to see beauty in the everyday, those who are slightly alternative and inquisitive in nature – just like our Scotch blending team.”

Scottish Leader is crafted by a single, dedicated blending team with nearly 400 years’ combined experience. These experts offer a wealth of experience and skill, as well as a forward-thinking, dynamic outlook. Lead blender McCallum’s signature on each bottle is her personal guarantee of the commitment and high values she and her team bring to the ancient art of whisky blending while looking towards the future.

Scottish Leader 12-year-old tasting notes:

Colour: Deep copper gold

Nose: Aromatic, with well-balanced aromas of sherry, orange, nutmeg, candied fruits and toffee apple

Taste: Rich, nutty, full and creamy with silky black fruit flavours, white pepper and sweet oak

Finish: Mellow, gently spicy and lingering

Choose a ‘paw-fect’ gift this Father’s Day…

With mottled fur in refined greys, browns and creams, he’s finished with a caramel muzzle and a matching hand-stitched nose. Briz is embellished with a fixed satin ribbon and key pendant – befitting for a traditional dad.

Isnee (£17) Isnee Chimp is the babyface of this year’s Bearhouse Collection. Finished in chestnut fur plush, he has perky ears and an inquisitive smile – a delightful character! Isnee wears a scarf around his neck – a stylish classic for dapper dads.

Hand-crafted and exquisitely assembled, these collectable bears have their own unique characteristics, extra special touches and hand–embroidered detail. From cheeky chappies to fine favourites, each timeless bear has a name to fit his or her features. This is why Charlie Bears is known around the globe for making bears with personalities.

Charlie Bears’ creator, Charlotte Morris, designs bears each year in all shapes and sizes, but only a limited number are made.

Pour wine without removing the cork with Coravin

Coravin Model Two Elite

A unique wine system that allows you to pour a glass of wine without removing the cork. This wine preservation system is perfect for those looking to enjoy a glass of wine without needing to finish the bottle. The Coravin System inserts a needle through the cork and pressurises the bottle with Argon gas, preventing oxidation and allowing a glass to be poured before the needle is removed again. The cork then naturally reseals the bottle meaning it can be enjoyed for months (or years) to come.

Product features:

Coravin Wine Needle – specially designed to be gentle on your corks and pour wine both quickly and smoothly
Properfit Clamp – the system’s easy-to-squeeze clamp with textured rubber grips, fits snuggly around the bottle neck, ensuring a secure hold and effortless pour
Load Cell Technology – the capsule-loading chamber creates the perfect amount of force for an airtight seal, ensuring no gas escapes
Premium Coravin Capsules – contain more than 99.99% pure argon gas to protect the remaining wine from oxidation. Two capsules are included with each Coravin System allowing up to 30 glasses of wine to be poured
Price: £279 from www.coravin.co.uk

This short video demonstrates how the product works.

Coravin Screw Caps

This accessory allows wine lovers to enjoy their screw cap wine for up to three months from the first taste using existing Coravin Systems. Quickly unscrew the bottle’s cap and replace it with a Coravin Screw Cap. Once screwed in place, access and pour as you normally would with a Coravin System. The caps can withstand up to 50 punctures making them reusable for around 10 bottles of wine. The 6 Pack comes with 4 standard Screw Caps and 2 large Screw Caps.

Coravin Aerator

The Coravin Aerator enhances your wine experience by immediately mixing the right amount of air with the wine as you pour. This lets your glass of wine breathe without lengthy decanting, while ensuring the rest of the bottle remains perfectly preserved. The perfect addition to every Coravin system, simply attach the Coravin Wine Aerator to the spout on your Coravin Wine system and use as normal.

I repurposed the “old” kitchen grater into a superfoods making tool by adding 2 additional grating surfaces including a built-in microplane.

Every health article you read these days mentions the importance of consuming more vegetables and fruit – they are the key to extraordinary health. I’m on a mission to show father this Father’s Day how fast, fresh, easy and delicious they are to make with TheGraterMan Grater!

Gilden Tree Father’s Day Gift Guide this year features the top three items picked as all-time favorite Father’s Day Gifts.

Here is a link to the gift guide: http://www.gildentree.com/t-fathers-day-gift-guide.aspx

Modern Waffle Weave bath sheet & Waffle weave towels have taken off in the last couple of years and are becoming ever more popular.

Here is a link to the page: http://www.gildentree..com/p-198-extra-large-waffle-weave-bath-sheet-towels-modern-style.aspx

Bath sheets are $44 and are by far our most popular size for men.

They are available in White, Cream, Slate, Espresso and Midnight Blue.

Waffle weave towels dry very quickly, in even the steamiest apartment bathroom. The other consideration for athletes is that these towels, while very large, take much less room when folded so they are perfect for lockers and gym bags.

 

 

Meet 37.5 Technology, the most advanced clothing technology that helps control your core body temp, no matter the activity or season.

It works by infusing fabric with natural activated minerals from volcanic sand and coconuts which react to the humidity near your skin to retain heat when you’re cold or dissipate it when you’re warm.

There are some major brands popular among dads that feature this technology like Adidas, Banana Republic, Tommy Bahama and nearly 40 more.

Flowers, spa treatment, a nice outfit, jewelry – the easy go-to Mother’s Day gifts. It’s not so easy to shop for Dad. Gifts must be functional, useful, economical, and interesting. As a wife and daughter I struggle every year.

But, as the founder of company selling a trendy personal hygiene product, I can make an easy recommendation for other wives and daughters – toilet paper spray. Before you delete and move on, here’s why toilet paper spray has been a go-to gift topper or add on gift for Father’s Day.

Dude Wipes and One-Wipe-Charlie’s are a rapidly growing trend among many men. Toilet paper spray falls into this category.Clean rears are in! Dads – you can quit stealing your kids wet wipes. Pristine toilet paper spray is an eco-friendly spray that eliminates the wet wipe from the bathroom routine. After all, wet wipes clog pipes and they are terrible for the environment (the UK is trying to ban wet wipes right now). Just spray the toilet paper, wipe and flush. Pristine is sold in 1-oz travel sizes that are perfect for the office (fits discretely in pant pockets for the walk to the men’s room), toiletry kits (TSA approved sized), for camping, hiking, RVing and any other activity where the inevitable may happen.

Dad’s may not know they want or need toilet paper spray. That’s why it’s the perfect gift for Father’s Day – you can give Dad something functional, useful, economically priced and very interesting.

“There are many studies that have found numerous health benefits of spending time outside therefore it’s encouraging that Britons are planning on spending some much needed time in the sun with their friends and family.

“It can be expensive renovating the whole garden and furnishing outdoor spaces, therefore we recommend UK homeowners take advantage of the sales over bank holiday weekends and possibly buy a few items each month to reduce paying for everything in one go.”

The Chelsea boot goes formal in fashion revival

Formal boots are set to trend this winter as their revival as a fashion must-have continues to dominate the world.

Chelsea boots in particular – ankle-high boots sporting an elastic gusset or a monk strap – are trending among men and women of all ages, says Barker Footwear designer, Devan Odayan.

Over recent years, Chelsea boots have transformed from a rock-star fashion item to must-have footwear in everyone’s closet. They have now evolved into sought after formal and stylish footwear, ideal to wear to work, weddings or other formal occasions.

Odayan says Chelsea boots can be paired with formal, semi-formal or casual outfits.

“They are versatile and stylish and in great demand around the world. And, there are different ways of wearing them such as the pants hanging over the boots, folded up to expose the boot, or tucking pants into the boots.”

Odayan says Barker’s stylish and comfortable hand-made Chelsea boots for men and women are made with genuine leather and breathable linings, allowing sweat to exit the shoe while the insoles absorb perspiration. Goodyear welted soles ensure long-lasting usage and although popular in winter, Barker Chelsea boots can be worn all year round.

Barker Footwear is available at selected retailers and independent stores countrywide.

New Gold Quarter Sovereign to Commemorate the Queen’s Sapphire Coronation Jubilee is a World First


Unique coin celebrates the Queen’s own unmatched moment in history as she becomes first monarch to celebrate a Sapphire Coronation Jubilee
With Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II set to become the first British monarch to reach their Sapphire Coronation Jubilee – celebrating 65 years since she was officially crowned – collectables firm The Bradford Exchange is marking this momentous occasion by releasing a brand new gold sovereign coin, approved by Buckingham Palace. The 2018 Gold Quarter Sovereign features a portrait of the Queen on horseback which fittingly recalls the equestrian portrait used on the first commemorative coin of her reign, the 1953 Coronation Crown, and then on subsequent coins celebrating her Majesty’s Jubilees over the decades. However, this is the first time that a portrait of the Queen on horseback has been used on a Gold Quarter Sovereign, making it a world first to mark an historic event.
Stephen Lee, Managing Director at The Bradford Exchange comments, “In an era of Royal ‘world firsts’, the Queen continues to be the biggest record-breaker of all. Her Sapphire Jubilee is a landmark anniversary that is likely to be the only one of its kind, ever. That’s why we wanted to commemorate this event with an exclusive coin that has also never been seen before.”
Only 2,018 Gold Quarter Sovereigns are being issued, making this a limited edition coin that is expected to sell out quickly. The coins are 14mm in diameter, made of solid 22-carat gold, produced to brilliant uncirculated quality and are available for purchase for £98 exclusively at www.bradford.co.uk/goldcoin or by calling 0333 003 0019.
The Gold Quarter Sovereign is one of a set of three coins which The Bradford Exchange has released to celebrate this very special Royal Jubilee, including the Enthroned Queen Half Sovereign and Double Effigy Full Sovereign.
Reflecting the equestrian portrait on the 2018 Gold Quarter Sovereign and the Queen’s famous love for horses, The Bradford Exchange is donating the full set of coins, worth over £1,500, to The Horse Rangers Association at a ceremony on Thursday 31st May, two days before the Queen’s Sapphire Coronation Jubilee. This is a charity which is dedicated to supporting children and young people from all backgrounds and abilities by giving them the opportunity to develop confidence and life skills through learning to ride and care for horses. It also has its own Royal links, with Her Royal Highness Princess Michael of Kent as its patron and with its headquarters within the Royal Mews at Hampton Court.
Jeremy Richardson, Director at The Horse Rangers Association, adds, “We are delighted to be receiving this kind donation from The Bradford Exchange and we will be able to put it to good use! At the age of ninety two the Queen is still a keen horsewoman and this is an inspiration to us all, so it feels appropriate that her commemorative coin will help us to continue our own work of encouraging youngsters to develop and grow as individuals through horse-riding.”

About The Bradford Exchange: The Bradford Exchange is the largest and most successful direct response collectables marketing company in the world, operating in 11 countries and with over 16 million customers worldwide. Founded in 1973, the company spent two decades as the world’s largest supplier of limited edition collector plates. Since then, its quest to develop exclusive limited edition collectables has expanded to include a diverse range of items. From sculptures and miniature models, to home décor pieces, unique jewellery and coins, The Bradford Exchange has set new standards of excellence across the entire collectables field.

About The Horse Rangers Association: The Horse Rangers Association is a registered charity based at the Royal Mews, Hampton Court. Founded in 1954, it is dedicated to supporting children and young people from all backgrounds and abilities by giving them the opportunity to develop confidence and life skills through learning to ride and care for horses. It relies on monthly subscriptions from its members for most of its income, supplemented by fundraising and charitable donations.

SMOKEY SWEET CHICKEN TENDERS


Serves 4

Method: Stove

Approx 60 minutes

Ingredients:

500g chicken inner fillets

100g plain flour

1 bottle Jack Daniel’s® Smokey Sweet Barbecue Glaze

300g panko breadcrumbs

40g parsley

Zest of 1 lemon

Salt and Pepper

500ml Vegetable Oil for Frying

Prep:

Place the flour, salt and pepper in a bowl.

Pour the Jack Daniel’s® Smokey Sweet Barbecue Glaze in a separate bowl.

Place the panko breadcrumbs, lemon zest and chopped parsley in a third bowl.

With clean hands, dip the chicken into the flour and coat evenly, tapping off any excess flour on the side of the bowl.

Dip the floured chicken into the Jack Daniel’s® Smokey Sweet Barbecue Glaze, coating the chicken evenly with the glaze.

Dip the chicken into the breadcrumb, lemon zest and chopped parsley mix, coating evenly and tapping off excess crumbs on the side of the bowl.

Place the coated chicken on a plate, cover with cling film and place in the refrigerator to chill for 30 minutes. This helps the crumbs stick to the chicken.

Heat the oil to 160°C. Once the oil is hot, fry the tenders a few at a time until golden brown, placing on kitchen paper to drain.

Serve immediately with a dipping bowl of Jack Daniel’s® Smokey Sweet Barbecue Glaze.

SMOKEY SWEET DONUT BURGER

Serves 4

Method: Grill / Oven

Approx 30 minutes

Ingredients:

500g minced beef

8 slices streaky bacon

4 slices burger cheese

Lettuce (optional)

Sliced red onions (optional)

Salt and pepper

1 bottle Jack Daniel’s® Smokey Sweet Barbecue Glaze

4 glazed donuts

Prep:

Place the minced beef, salt, pepper and ½ bottle Jack Daniel® Smokey Sweet sauce in a bowl. Using freshly washed hands, mix well and shape into four even sized patties.

Place the patties and bacon on a tray under a preheated grill and cook until crispy.

When the meat has cooked, remove the tray and brush the bacon and the burger patties with the remaining sauce. Place back under the grill for a further two minutes to glaze.

Slice the donuts in half and grill until golden brown.

Assemble the burger by topping one half of the donut with lettuce, followed by sliced red onions, a beef patty, two slices of bacon, cheese and finally the remaining half of the donut.

Serve immediately.

HONEY SESAME AND CHILLI WINGS

Serves 4

Method: Oven

Approx 60 minutes

Ingredients:

500g chicken wings

1 bottle Jack Daniel’s® Tennessee HoneyTM Barbecue Glaze

30g sesame seeds (toasted)

10g spring onions

1 red chilli

Salt and pepper

Prep:

Preheat oven to 200°C (Fan 180°C).

With clean hands, place the wings in a large bowl and add the Jack Daniel’s® Tennessee HoneyTM Barbecue Glaze. Evenly coat the chicken wings and leave to marinade. The wings will take on the flavour of the sauce, the longer they are left to marinade. Overnight is best, but cover with cling film and refrigerate for a minimum of 30 minutes.

Remove the wings from the refrigerator and spread out on a large baking tray so they are not touching. Place in preheated oven and bake for 10 minutes.

Remove the tray, turn the wings and bake for a further 10 minutes.

Whilst the wings are baking, chop the chilli and spring onion.

Once the wings are cooked, they will have a nice golden sticky glaze. Remove them from the oven, sprinkle with chopped chilli, spring onion and toasted sesame seeds.

Serve immediately.

EXPERT TEETHING TIPS from leading dentist, Dr. Konviser

With so much information out there on teething, it can be hard to know how best to manage your little one’s teething pain. With this in mind, the award winning teething brand, Matchstick Monkey asked leading dentist, Dr. Saul Konviser* for his expert advice…

Q: What age would you expect teething to start?

A: Most children will start teething around the age of 6 months old, but don’t be worried if it’s later. There is a real range for children and so it’s quite normal for one child to get their first tooth at 6 months and another at maybe 10 months or even later, just be patient.

Q: What is the best pain relief for teething?

There is no ‘magic cure’ for teething and each child differs. It can be extremely stressful and upsetting for both child and parent alike during the teething process, and the most important thing is to try and make your child as comfortable as possible. Using regular medication such as Calpol or Nurofen in the recommended doses (assuming there are no contraindications especially to Nurofen) is very helpful. There are other alternative homeopathic remedies that some parents find helpful, but this is a personal preference.

Providing a cold pack in a variety of forms is also very helpful to help the child chew and suck on to provide some short-term relief to the gums. There are also certain gels which include anaesthetic that can be placed over the gums and help provide some temporary relief. This is especially useful prior to bedtime to help them fall asleep with no pain.

It is very important to keep the gums around the new teeth clean as they can get quite inflamed as the teeth cut through – and so painful for the child. Using some gauze in salt water to cleanse the area, or a teething toy such as Matchstick Monkey with a teething gel is useful as it also helps to introduce the child to a toothbrush in a fun way. It is important for children to get used to brushing their teeth from the moment that first tooth pops out!

Q: Do children get any other side effects when teething?

It is quite common during teething for children to suffer from excessive saliva production and it looks like they’re drooling all the time. This can also result in sores around the mouth if it is not kept clean, especially on their chin where it can dribble and irritate. Cheeks often become very red and the child can also have a very runny tummy. There are instances where children could get a high temperature, and again this should be managed with the appropriate medication and if necessary, always consult your GP.

Q: Does putting pressure on your gums help ease teething pain?

A: Yes, so a fun and child-friendly teether like the Matchstick Monkey is a good way to start this habit from an early age and help them progress onto a normal toothbrush. It also has the added bonus of being soft enough for the children to chew on and help massage the gums during the eruption process.

Read the full feature here for more helpful tips and advice.

Matchstick Monkey Teething Toys are ergonomically designed to reach right to the source of the teething pain with bumps on the back of the head to soothe sore gums. £9.99 from www.matchstickmonkey.com

He is also a Trustee of the charity, Dental Wellness Trust, providing oral health education workshops and toothbrushing programmes to schools across South East England, as well as in Cape Town, South Africa.

June special safari package at Tau in the Madikwe Reserve

Superb special package at less 15% for June 2018 at Tau Game Lodge

The spectacle of myriad game at the large Tau waterhole, which is visible from all room and hospitality decks, proves highly addictive at this malaria-free 5-star lodge.

The new Reception, Lounge, Dining Room, leisure decks, Bar, Boma and two pools, of which one is an infinity design, make for contemporary out of Africa safari heaven.

The lodge is enclosed within the reserve, resulting in the humans being subtly fenced in, while game, including several crocodiles, roam free, including the prolific bird life.

Dinner is a convivial experience, hosted in the Boma, or Restaurant or Dining Deck, depending on the weather.

The safari rangers have respect for the bush by allowing the creatures of the wild their space. Within minutes, you’ll be photographing members of the Big Five, from aged bull elephants, delicately foraging and breakfasting on new green flora, to white rhino and their young.

The early morning game drive is spectacular, offering magical light for photography, with a pit stop for Amarula coffee and delicious buttermilk rusks. Afternoon game drives include dazzling African sunsets with your favourite tipple in hand before returning to the lodge for dinner.

It is not unusual to come across some young lion acting kittenish in the sun, before sniffing the air and looking regal, peering into the distance, where there could well be some wildebeest or appetising antelope upwind.

The Tau Cubz Club, Tau Spa Oasis and Tau Conference Centre make this an ideal destination for romantic, family, leisure as well as corporate travel.

Tau Game Lodge opened its 5-star safari doors in 1995 and offers 30 rooms, from Standard to Luxury to Family Suites. A mere 4.5 hours’ drive from Johannesburg, the lodge borders Botswana.

Winter 2018 special online booking package, valid for June 2018:

R3,065 per person sharing per night – R3,679 single.
